Now that restrictions are easing, a stay at Wombat Bend could be JUST what you need…
You’ll be the only guests here, surrounded by mother nature, a life-giving billabong and its birdlife, endless fresh air to breathe, a bookcase of great reads to lose yourself in, and best of all, a fire-pit at night to toast marshmallows over.

When you come to stay, you’ll find we’ve put a COVID safety plan in place – to keep us all safe during this pandemic.

Meantime, stay connected with us via our facebook and instagram accounts – for a little Wombat Bend ‘fix’.

A tranquil mudbrick-and-cedar B & B
in the Yarra Valley

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.

Book Now

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.

Jane Edmanson and the Gardening Australia crew filmed a segment at Wombat Bend in November 2019 where the Callistemons, which horticulturists Sue Forrester and Bill Molyneux have cultivated, were at their absolute best that day.

November is ‘bottlebrush’ time at Wombat Bend. As the presenters stroll around the billabong with Sue & Bill, and around the smaller frog pond at the eastern end of the property, you see masses of Callistemons in full flower, dripping with honeyeaters.

The segment aired on Friday 9 October 2020 on Gardening Australia on the ABC.
