We had the most wonderfully relaxing time at Woodlands rainforest retreat. The only place we have ever stayed that is truly secluded and private, surrounded by the most beautiful bushland but feeling completely safe and relaxed. The wildlife was fun to watch, the spa with the incredible open plan out to the scenery was divine. The BBQ platter and gourmet breakfast was yum and the most delicious cakes that we weren’t expecting. Jane and Anneke from Yarra Valley massage just ended the last day beautifully. For 2 people that don’t often get massages we absolutely loved it. Overall the most relaxed we have been in a long time. Thank you so much. We felt like the only 2 people on the planet.

My husband and I stayed at Woodlands Rainforest Retreat as part of our honeymoon and had the most amazing stay! The cabin we stayed in was absolutely gorgeous and cosy and the indoor spa with the forest views is a gorgeous touch! The cabin had everything we needed and you can tell the team have put in a lot of effort to make those thoughtful touches, such as the bikes, gumboots, picnic baskets, warm blankets etc. It truly felt like they’d thought of everything! We loved sitting out on the deck and taking in the gorgeous views while listening to the birds and were even lucky enough to have a wallaby right out front one evening! We loved everything about our stay and can’t wait to come back!

Thank you for your kind review on your stay here at Woodlands. The most notable feature our guests comment on is the complete seclusion amidst the Black Ranges temperate rainforest with its amazing fauna and flora. Visiting wildlife and an abundance of bird species (including our resident Lyrebirds) are truly a joy for our guests and we never fail to receive happy feedback on this count. To this end, we enjoyed having you as our guests and hope to welcome you back, perhaps to experience a different season where the flora and fauna display numerous changes.

From the moment we entered the cabin, we felt pampered and relaxed with the mood lighting, soft music playing and the air-con running. The food was delicious and extra things like fruit basket, port and Bird seed was much appreciated. Being amidst the wildlife and bushland with no one else in sight was sublime! We'd bring our own drinking water next time.
