Bush Hideouts is a pristine bush property set along the Goulburn River, nestled 12kms from the town of Tallarook.

Set on our 500 acre slice of valley paradise, The Nest is a charming and fully equipped two story off-grid cabin with a 15m x 15m footprint. The open plan cabin contains a comfortable collection of colonial and period furniture, epic stone fireplace and panoramic vistas. It also has a kitchen with gas cooker and a vintage wood burner oven for your convenience.

Come to Bush Hideouts and simply switch off, reconnect with your loved ones and meet our many furry and feathered friends who call this landscape their home. We are located next to the Horseshoe Lagoon forest and fauna reserve.

We have a large Wombat population and the reclusive Platypus is spotted regularly in the Lagoon and Goulburn river. A battalion of Kangaroos also pass through in the mornings.

What an incredible place!
The nest is a beautiful building with so much character and nestled in a stunning valley on the Goulburn River. Great places to run, walk, swim and lie around in the sun or in front of the huge fireplace.
Such a functional area to have a quiet weekend or a larger group with so much space for pitching a few extra tents and great facilities etc.
Steve was a perfect host - super responsive on the text, helpful with any little questions but left us to ourselves to enjoy the serene surrounds.
The dogs loved it more than anyone.

We spent a wonderful two nights at the Nest. Rainy days weren’t a problem as we happily rugged up by the warm fire. The kitchen was well equipped which we made good use of feeding 8 people. Plenty of clean bedding and towels. The walk to the river was a highlight as was being showed around the property and trying the fruit and nuts fresh off the trees. We spotted some Roos and wombats and enjoyed the bird life of the area. Very special place and would highly recommend for couples larger groups and families. Thank you for having us....

Had a fantastic time, the property was lovely and Steven was very helpful. Have already told other people about the place. Just a small thing to consider is that there is no gas bbq, just the wood fire ones, so keep that into consideration for convenience. The wood fire flavours is def worth the slight inconvenience though....
