Red Hill Thrill

The Red Hill Barn was expansive and cosy, modern and homely, all at once. This beautifully converted barn was a breath of fresh air to walk into during such a busy time of the year, with its magnificent cathedral ceiling, natural timber floorboards, super modern finishes and raw wooden features, you could tell it was a labour of love.

We were optimistic that the weather was going to be sunny and warm, but the sun was struggling to make an appearance, and so was the surf. Luckily, being in Red Hill meant we were spoilt for alternatives to keep us more than entertained (and well-fed).

We spent our weekend eating and drinking our way through Red Hill, only tearing ourselves away from the culinary trail to immerse ourselves in the dreamy Peninsula Hot Springs on Saturday afternoon. We then saw out our Saturday with a ripper sunset on the cliffs of Flinders, adding to the list of favourite places in Victoria. This weekend escape was an absolute dream.

Green Olive Winery
Good food, great wine and a picturesque backdrop as well. We indulged in a sharing board before wandering the property and watching the ducklings learn to swim!...
Flinders Sunset
We saw out our Saturday with a ripper sunset on the cliffs of Flinders, adding to the list of favourite places in Victoria. This is the perfect spot for a picnic if it's not too windy....
Peninsula Hot Springs
This place is perfect to soak to the bones after a big week on the tools. It was so good to relax and rejuvenate in such an idyllic setting....
Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm
Home to the sweetest strawbs! For $10 we wandered the strawberry farm and picked a punnet-full, which we took home and enjoyed all weekend....
Johnny Ripe
Besides being easy on the eyes, this café was stacked with awesome baked goods and local produce. Coffees were amazing, staff were friendly and the apple and walnut slice was a beauty!...
