Escape to this award-winning Phillip Johnson Landscapes garden and lush forest retreat. The majesty of our space is in our outdoor billabongs and waterfalls seen from the comfort of your bedrooms. This used to be our home, and now we hope to share the tranquillity with you. The forest surrounding Billabong Falls is made up of towering Mountain Ash trees—some of the largest trees in world. Wallabies and kookaburras can sometimes be spotted in this truly energising landscape, a perfect patch of paradise.

Located in the gorgeous township of Olinda in the Dandenong ranges, our house is just a short 50 minute drive from the Melbourne CBD, after a stay at Billabong Falls removed from city life, you will be renewed by natures bounty.

Additional Information

Find a beautifully appointed kitchen with breakfast basket including fresh free range eggs, cereal, fresh bread and a pantry with lots of basics. The living areas are spacious and open with magnificent views down to the garden and the forest beyond.

This is a truly unique property which has won numerous awards for its beauty and sustainable practice. Phillips Olinda home was also the inspiration for his winning garden at the International Chelsea Flower show.

Only 7 minutes drive from the Olinda township, and 20 minutes from the beautiful Yarra Valley this is a weekender that will delight on every level. You will not find a property like this anywhere else.

The property is fully heated and air-conditioned with decking on both sides of the house allowing for indoor outdoor living and magnificent views down to the natural pool and waterfalls.

Enjoy exploring the amazing native garden, take your towel outside for an energizing private outdoor heated shower. You won't want to leave...

Park in the undercover carport next to the house and enter off the decking, (please DONT drive under the house as the driveway is too steep for most cars) you will have access to this entire property to explore and relax in. A stunning natural waterhole awaits and a second billabong with multiple waterfalls sets the scene beautifully. Native plants are the stars of this garden but you will also find a plentiful seasonal veggie patch for you to use.

- No smoking inside

Mid week stays - We run a landscape design studio from another building on the same property. The office sits behind the house and the blinds will be drawn so the garden and pool with be private.

You might see a couple of cars come an go from the driveway but the carport will be reserved for guests. The house looks out to the forest and garden/pool and the bedroom windows have 1 way glass.
