The Burrow is a beautifully designed mudbrick and cedar retreat, offering self contained B&B accommodation in a purely natural Australian landscape. In the heartland of Melbourne's Yarra Valley, it's just one hour from the CBD or the Airport, and only ten minutes from Yarra Glen. Set beside a shady billabong, a paradise for the resident birdlife, this is a tranquil retreat for the couple seeking privacy and relaxation. In the heart of the Yarra Valley, you won't be short of things to do and places to go. But most of all, you'll pocket a wealth of take home memories of a close encounter with Nature, in a purely Australian setting that guarantees every comfort, perfect privacy and absolute quietude.

And if you are seeking a writer's retreat, or a photographer's inspiration, you have just found it. Naturally, it's Australian to the core ~ a serene and private retreat with every comfort provided. Watch the sun set over the billabong, a glass of wine beside you; birdsong by day, frogs by night, you're close to Nature and the stars, and a million miles away from stress. You'll feel so relaxed, you'll want to stay forever. More

My daughter and I spent two blissful nights at The Burrow and didn’t want to leave. It was part writing retreat, part mum-daughter quality time, part escaping the confusion of social distancing and isolation and forgetting about it all for a couple of days. The...More

We just adored having you to stay in The Burrow. Nothing could have topped it for Angus, knowing a little girl was 'next door' so he could gallop over to your front door each morning and woof for some brekkie toast. It was particularly special...More

Sue and Bill provide a wonderful nature filled getaway. We loved every minute of our stay. The birds were amazing. Taking that walk around the billabong everyday was magical. Thank you so much for your hospitality. We would stay again anytime.More

I was fortunate to spend seven nights at The Burrow, and they went by so quickly. Every morning you wake up to birdsong, and throughout the day the view over the billabong changes subtly as different animals come and go. Whether you are staying for...More

About the neighbourhood
The Yarra Valley is a region of rolling hills, forests, vineyards and farms, and towns both small and large, all set in the wide valley of the Yarra River that flows down from the Great Dividing Range. From quaint Warburton at its head all the way to the neighbouring Dandenong Ranges, there's a naturalness still to be experienced in a world that is rapidly losing touch with nature. There's great accommodation to be found at every level, and a warm welcome is guaranteed wherever you choose to put your head. We are proud of our region and love to share it with new- and old-comers alike. Come and see it for yourself.
Getting around
If you have your own transport (car) there is no limit to the places you can readily explore. We are well supplied with maps and guides to all attractions. There are also some excellent tour guides who will tailor a day tour to meet your interests, enabling even the shortest amount of time to be fully maximised.
