RECOMMENDED COUPLES ACTIVITIES AND VENUES IN THE YARRA VALLEY We understand if you want to stay on the ridge, but a day out in the fresh air is also great fun. Get a driver to pick you up and take you on a personalised tour of the Yarra Valley. Go flash in the famous teal ’64 Chevy convertible with Stella Tours, get George to drive your car with Driven Indulgence or get Craig from Yarra Valley Touring Company to pick you up in his van and meet some like minded grape grazers.
WHAT CAN GUESTS WALK TO IN 15 MINUTES We are only ten minutes to Healesville by car and our roads are best suited for car. If you bring your bikes, we are near Pauls Range State forest.
RECOMMENDED PLACES TO VISIT IN THE YARRA VALLEY - Watts River Brewery - chilled and relaxed vibe with pizzas and fresh beer. - No. 7 - Let the chef feed you - its great value and amazing food. - Any hike but we love the Tanglefoot Track - tree ferns and 100m gum trees, glorious! - TarraWarra Museum - they are just around the corner from us and always have something interesting to see. - Healesville Glass Blowing Studio - watch the glass blowers in action.
WHAT COUPLES LOVE ABOUT OUR ACCOMMODATION Couples use our location to celebrate anniversaries, babymoons, wedding nights and honeymoons and big birthdays. Our cabins are set up so that you do not have to leave except for day trips. We have a wide selection of wines and small meal offerings so that couples can just come and stay without any planning. Couples love our 'No children/Infants' policy because they can have a retreat and really have great break together. Please note our 'No children and infants' policy is in place because of safety. We are perched on a ridge and therefore the cabins are set very high. Additionally, the fireplaces in the cabins are unguarded and get very hot.

RECENT REVIEWS MelbourneTau wrote a review Apr. 2019 * * * * * Repeat customers, will be back We have been coming to kangaroo ridge for 5 years now. This is the first time we have stayed since the business was taken over by new owners - we were a little apprehensive and hoped our favourite getaway would remain a favourite. Well - it certainly has! The cabins are comfortable, private and have a great view. They also contain a range of delicious provisions, a selection of drinks and a surprise welcome hamper full of great local products that helped to make our stay that little bit more special. We had another fantastic and relaxing stay and look forward to returning many more times over the coming years. Greg S wrote a review Mar. 2019 * * * * * Secluded and relaxing This place was an awesome get away spot for our anniversary. A very well appointed cabin and the food and amenities were great. The kitchen had all we needed for our stay. The wildlife and views were amazing, we felt secluded and private. D Lomax wrote a review Feb. 2019 * * * * * Absolutely stunning! Everything about our stay at Kangaroo Ridge Retreat was amazing and we could not recommend it more to anyone. The cabin was beautiful with an excellent layout and was extremely comfortable. The supplied locally made bathroom products are exceptional and the breakfast provisions were delicious, fresh oranges to squeeze your own juice and eggs to enjoy with breakfast was amazing. The larder from which you can purchase extra cured meats, wine, beer and cider all for a very reasonable price is a brilliant idea and something we thoroughly enjoyed. The communication from the staff was excellent and very friendly. The location of Kangaroo Ridge Retreat is also very well situated, you have a serene country hilltop escape with a picturesque veiw of the ranges. You could easily relax in the cabin or on the deck for the duration of your stay and thoroughly enjoy the peace and quiet. At the same time you're only 10 minutes from beautiful town of Healesville where you can access any of your everyday needs or visit some world-class cellar doors for a tipple of incredible wines and a taste of local produce. Thank you Kangaroo Ridge Retreat our stay was exceptional!
