My daughter and I were tired of being in the city and were craving rainforests and beach - Johanna delivered on both counts and soon we were in the car, driving from Melbourne to Johanna - almost a 3 hr drive. We walked through Melba Gully Park and walked the wild, wonderful length of Johanna Beach. Our cottage at the Boomerangs was absolutely perfect - a fire, cosy beds and a view to wash away all the stress and worry of life in a pandemic. The property boasts a beautiful garden featuring gorgeous birdsongs and secateurs are provided to help yourself to the plentiful flowers. The hosts Mark and Roz are warm and friendly, but the four legged ambassadors really steal the show. 15 yr old Hanna and baby Blue are adorable and made the visit that much more memorable for us both. Like a boomerang, we will definitely return.

We loved staying at the Boomerangs for three nights, mixing walking the GOW with very special surroundings. The cabin was perfect - lots of space, privacy, great amenities (we were grateful for the washing machine after getting quite dusty on the walk, and I loved soaking in the spa bathtub). We turned into avid bird watchers on this trip, and particularly loved our neighbourhood family of nine yellow-tailed black cockatoos (Mark's gardening seems to have played a role in attracting them as seeing such large flocks is apparently quite unusual). If the sofas had been pull-outs, we would have gladly slept in the large open living room, which was perfect for star gazing after dark. At night, we could hear the ocean (beach is 5km away). The cabins are self-catering but very well equipped, so we were glad to have brought ample supplies from Apollo Bay for our dinners and large breakfasts. Special thanks to Roz and Mark, who were very helpful - from providing maps, fly nets and advice to helping with the wifi, picking up much needed supplies and spider removal from our car!!! Be aware that wifi is limited. This is not the fault of Mark and Roz, who did what they could to help us get connected. We walked the GOW in stages and basing ourselves at the Boomerangs turned out to be a great half-way option. One of the days, Roz very kindly dropped us at Cape Otway and we walked back to Johanna Beach (where we had parked our car); the second day, we worked with a local taxi shuttle so we could walk from Wreck's Beach back to Johanna. It worked out perfectly. Thanks for a truly special stay - we would highly recommend the Boomerangs for any stay in the area.

A really nice place with an amazing view over the hills towards the ocean. There a not a lot of cities/villages around but it is a nice drive to the 12 apostles and Port Campbell. Our house had 2 bed rooms, a big living room/ kitchen and a nice bathroom including a bath with jet streams. The owners are really friendly and have some good tips for things to do in the area.

The accomodation was very nice, beautiful surroundings..lots of land, birds and we saw a lot of rabbits. Perfect place to get away from it all and close to the beach. We fell in love with Hanna the dog who greeted us at reception.

Drove 7 hours (coastal route) from Melbourne to reach Johanna to find ourself in this lovely cabin. The view was amazing, rabbits hopping just in front of our window. The cabin is self sufficient, with washing machine, big toilet, clean kitchen and a heater blanket. There is a wooden fire place too to keep the place warm. It was a great stop before 12 apostle the next day. We book direct from the website, communication was easy. Wish we could spend more days here!
