Welcome to 'Blacksands Country Retreat' where we've converted the very old dairy site and added a lovely caravan to provide guests with a country stay in a unique bush setting. Overlooking farmland and a running stream, you can breathe the fresh mountain air as you forget about the hustle and bustle of daily life. 

This self-contained caravan and dairy/annex area has one Queen (or two single) beds. (Please bring your own linen - or sleeping bags for single configuration). We've got the towels blankets and pillows covered. Drinking water is provided along with a A kettle, microwave and bar-b-que for cooking - cutlery, crockery and a few essentials. Of course theres a toilet and hot shower, so just bring your own food and you'll have everything you need for a special weekend away for two.

Enjoy bush walks, go down to the stream for a plunge in summer, and of course why not experience Yarra Valley's gourmet food and wine right at your doorstep. You can even book a private Massage right here on-site!

We also run 'Shortlist Private Tours', (Google us) taking you to the best local wineries and venues around.  With us you’ll experience the best our region has to offer. You can book a tour via Extras, or talk to us about your interests and the food and wines you’d like to taste. Together we can choose from the best known places in the Valley.

 Please message us for tour availability prior to booking.
