Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The views of the sunrise and sunset were absolutely phenomenal. Especially witnessing some deer coming so close to the room and all other wildlife that presented itself on our 2 nights away. Would 100% return and recommend this amazing stay.

Loved the larder idea where you could sample an array of produce from the local area. We also added the BBQ pack to our stay. We loved the food so much we took a trip into town to purchase more of the produce to take back home with us. Thank you for catering to my dietary needs (coeliac). It was very much appreciated.

The view is amazing, in the morning seeing the valley full of mist was spectacular. The bed was so comfortable. The bbq pack was delicious, especially with the recommended Shiraz. The view from the spa was great too. Definitely want to return some time in the future.

We booked this trip over a year ago so there was a lot of anticipation. We were celebrating my husband's 30th birthday and could not have chosen a better stay. Everything was impeccable. There was plenty of supply for our breakfast and the Larder was full of all sorts of goodness from the Yarra Valley region. Not to mention the infinite amount of wines to choose from. The views are breathtaking and the cabin is so cozy that you barely wanna leave. Lots of wildlife around the cabin as well. Rebecca was an incredible host even before our arrival as we chatted on the phone and on text as well. We had a minor issue with our A/C and Rebecca was super on top and got someone to sort it out in less than 24h. I would recommend Kangaroo Ridge Retreat to all my friends and to anyone who wishes to enjoy some quiet and peaceful time in nature while eating delicious snacks and sipping on wonderful wines. We will definitely be back in the future. Thanks, Rebecca! Cheers, Larissa and Gian.

Once you arrive at Kangaroo Ridge, there is literally no reason to leave. With a stunning view, well stocked larder containing some of the best beer, wine and food that the Yarra Valley has to offer, the most difficult decision was what to sample first. The cabin was cosy yet large enough that you feel like you can fully stretch out and relax. In the morning, the drawing back of the block out blinds treated us to a different version of that stunning view, this time with the sun streaming in, which provided the perfect backdrop for a coffee and a lazy breakfast in bed.

Grazing from the larder and sipping from the wine bar. Too lovely! The sunrise IS spectacular and then to enjoy that with breakfast in bed, so dreamy! We know sometimes it's hard to say goodby, but that means you'll just have to come back! Until we welcome you back, happy travels! Rebecca

What a stunning mid-week break! We headed to Kangaroo Ridge Retreat for a quiet getaway ahead of the Christmas / end of year madness, and it definitely did not disappoint! The views, tranquility, food and wine were truly exceptional (and so thoughtfully curated)! Sitting in the cosy elevated cabins, overlooking the ridge with wine in one hand, an easy-reading book in the other, and a cheese platter in front of me, we felt like the only people for miles (in every direction – seriously views every which way!) but when we had questions, the Kangaroo Ridge team were only a text away! Could not recommend highly enough for lovers of food and wine looking to escape to a completely different world (that’s just on our city’s doorstep)!
