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.

IMPORTANT NOTE (Bushhideouts provides initial wood but please bring your own as we have seen guests go through $200 worth in one night which is not environmentally cool or economically viable. Guest tend to burn their own wood more frugally. We even provide a Gransforsbruk wood splitter)

Goulboun River

Discovered by Fabio
We surrendered to the call of the river and it was a blast! I won’t lie, the crystal clear water was freezing cold because it comes from the bottom of nearby Lake Eildon, but for a hot day it was so refreshing and just perfect....

Defender Sunset Drive

Discovered by Fabio
We took the Defender and went up to the mountains for sunset. What a view! From up there you can see the whole valley and the Goulburn River and is also great for hiking....

Exploring The Property

Discovered by Fabio
We went on a walk around the property to experience the whole country summer vibe. The bush outside the house is just full of wildlife, birds singing loudly all over, kangaroos, wombats, you get a bit of everything....

Seymour Bushland Reserve

Discovered by Andrew
We hiked through Seymour Bushland Reserve, just a short drive up the road from The Nest. The place is teeming with wildlife. Tread lightly and make sure to look up as you might catch a koala having a snooze in the treetops...

Wines By Sam

Discovered by Ben
A little cellar door with an amazing host who took us around and showed how everything was made and the beautiful wines up for grabs!...

The Brewers Table

Discovered by Andrew
We scored a quality coffee and some breaky from The Brewer’s Table in Seymour. We then got lucky with a weekend market pop-up across the road, where the grazing continued with gozlemes, donuts and a cheeky pint of beer while local musicians kept the vibes up....

Incredible weekend away. The cabin had amazing views, everything worked perfectly and it was full of adventure.
The cows, boulders, wombats, birds and towering green hills were definitely the highlights.

Our two nights at the Nest were wonderful. Steven was very generous and accommodating. The weather excusez-nous us from serious outdoor exploring the first day but allowed us to get cosy by the fire and make the most of our pile of books - the solid structure didn’t miss a beat in the roaring winds and the driving rain. The hot water bottles were a welcome touch and the gas and wood fires oven cooker were great to cook / warm food with. The location is quite wondrous we found as we wound our way around the hillsides on the cow paths amongst the kangaroos and along the river bank. We’d like to come back when all the trees are full and we can use the expansive outdoor areas better. In short we had a blast. Thanks Steven!...

What an experience!! Hands down one of the best camping experiences I have ever been on!! What a gem of a place Riparide have found!! Completely off the grid, stone throw to the creek, beautiful look outs, amazing animals everywhere you see. A solid 10/10 with no room for improvement - perfect in every sense of the word!!!...
