Orchard View at Drumour

AUD$179/night Instant Book

A Splash of Autumn and a Million Stars

Story by Jarrod Andrews

A stunning bright yellow tree lined the driveway entrance that I was not expecting as it greeted me when I arrived at what I could only describe as a high end tiny home in a quaint little county town of Beeac in Victoria. For a tiny home, this was pretty luxurious and every little detail had been thought of including the positioning of the tiny home. You could set your alarm to watch the sunrise perfectly from your warm bed and have a beer by the fireplace on the deck that faces the setting sun in the evening. If you’re a stargazer, this is also a perfect spot as it is so far from any light pollution. It seems like the sky is filled with a million extra stars.

On the first night after chatting with the amazing and welcoming hosts Brett & Suzanne, I ended up joining them at the local pub The Farmers Arms Hotel which to my delight served up some proper god grub with an extensive menu that would not disappoint anyone who dined. My favourite part was the old bar in the adjacent room that looked like it hadn’t been touched for 100 years with some of the coolest décor I’ve ever seen and hands down one of the best pubs I’ve ever set foot in. Really good for an interesting photo opportunity so I stopped by for a beer the following day to soak it all in.

Red Rock Lookout

Red Rock Reserve Rd, Alvie VIC 3249, Australia

The next morning after enjoying sunrise and breakfast from the front deck of the tiny home, I made my way to Red Rock Lookout where you can view 7 crater lakes from the extinct volcanos of the 3rd largest volcanic plain in the world and enjoy views over Victoria's largest...

The next morning after enjoying sunrise and breakfast from the front deck of the tiny home, I made my way to Red Rock Lookout where you can view 7 crater lakes from the extinct volcanos of the 3rd largest volcanic plain in the world and enjoy views over Victoria’s largest permanent inland lake. It is also quite a historic area as I passed a number of cool old abandoned buildings along the way.

Lake Elizabeth

Great Otway National Park, Victoria, Australia

The great thing about Beeac is it is right on the foot of the Otway’s. So I made the 40min drive to watch sunrise at the stunning Lake Elizabeth, but even better as I was greeted with a blanket of thick fog all through the forest. The forest here is...

The great thing about Beeac is it is right on the foot of the Otway’s. So I made the 40min drive to watch sunrise at the stunning Lake Elizabeth, but even better as I was greeted with a blanket of thick fog all through the forest. The forest here is so lush and thick and the reflections in the water are like a mirror. If you are lucky, you may even spot on some of the locals swimming in the water as the area is well known for spotting platypus. The walk into the lake is 2km return so expect it to take 40min to 1h return depending on your fitness level with a small hill here and there to navigate.
