A mudbrick Bed & Breakfast
in the Yarra Valley

Relax and enjoy the tranquillity…
soothe your soul by the banks of our billabong.

Everybody falls in love with The Burrow – it invites you to take your foot off the pedal, sink into a chair and breathe. The sense of welcome, the snuggly rugs and soft pure linen, the permission to lose yourself for an hour in a book, or investigate the treasures throughout The Burrow. There’s no To Do list here, put the kettle on, put your feet up, gaze through the window and let the billabong work its magic.

Why do couples keep returning for more? Some say it is the breeze through the trees, the richness of birdsong and the frog chorus at night. For others, it’s the shimmering water, the lemon perfume of the early spring wattle, and the flash of the bronze wing pigeon. Witnessing the moon rising over the billabong, or the early morning mist, with crunchy frost underfoot – every time you visit, there’s something new.
