Southern Anchorage Retreat is a tranquil bush haven and has three rustic and luxurious cottages and two overnight suites. The suites are ideal for the short GOR trip whereas the cottages are a perfect base for an extended and relaxing stay.
Our beautiful retreat is just 20 minutes from the Twelve Apostles and has spectacular bush and coastal views. We are very close to the Otway Fly, Cape Otway Lighthouse and many other Great Ocean Rd tourist attractions. The Great Ocean Walk is just 500 metres down the road and there are some terrific local walks from our gate. We share our neighbourhood with two lookouts- (Moonlight and Gables) and have historic and scenic Wreck Beach on our doorstep.
Kangaroos and kookaburras visit daily and are just a taste of some our our amazingly diverse wildlife.

Southern Anchorage Retreat is indulgence in the Otways. Revitalise yourself in a peaceful bush setting, enjoy the comforts of being close to nature or just use the retreat as a base to explore the many attractions close by.

Southern Anchorage Retreat is an easy drive to the Twelve Apostles, but their unique setting is worth the trip. Many of the guests to Southern Anchorage Retreat suggest that they came to visit the amazing Twelve Apostles, but the beauty in the views from the accommodation were even more amazing; to see a sunset in the area is an awe-inspiring experience, very memorable.

Need to invigorate yourself or your relationship? The retreat is just the place for you. They have three superb cottages, each loaded with luxuries to pamper your needs. Whether you choose to relax in the luxurious jacuzzi, enjoy the warmth and romance of the wood heater fires or simply crash on the comfy king and queen sized beds, Southern Anchorage Retreat is just the place for you.

Then again you may like to relax on the deck with nature surrounding you, with kangaroos often passing or birdsong gently lulling you; it is impossible not to be swept away by the beauty of the environment of Southern Anchorage.

Picture this: glass of red in hand, mouth-watering smells of the barbecue sizzling just off to side, while kookaburras call, crimson rosellas feed and kangaroos graze close by - all it is missing is you, so come and be swept away by the natural environment, you will be amazed.

Each cabin is well appointed, but the owners have tried to keep nature as the greatest luxury and all this just a fifteen minute drive from the iconic Twelve Apostles. You will not want to leave!
