About the neighbourhood
The cottage nestles among a very pretty 15 acres of avocado, fruit & nut trees, with spring fed dams, geese, and produce to sample. The cottage is accessed down a lovely oak-lined avenue of honour. Turn left from here, and head up past the lovely historic Scott's Pioneer Church and hall, suitable for vintage weddings, and on to Mirboo North, with it's well-known boutique Brewery, bike trails and lovely tourist drive. Or head down to the beaches and ocean drives of Inverloch, Cape Liptrap, Walkerville & Sandy Point. Leongatha, 7 minutes away, is a large rural town offering several supermarkets, a cinema complex, cafes and restaurants, gym and heated indoor pool and all amenities.
How to get there
The actual address is '30 Hydes Road KOOROOMAN, not Leongatha. By car, from Leongatha head east on the Strzlecki Highway towards Mirboo North. Take the first turn right onto Mardan Road. Travel 5 kilometres along Mardan Road and turn left into Hydes Road - a small oak-lined 'Avenue of Honour' with only three houses. Walnut cottage is number 30 - the only drive on the RHS. Swing hard right at the top of the drive to come around to the cottage.
