Set in Victoria’s High Country, Omaroo High Country Retreat beckons with its natural beauty and welcoming atmosphere. Derived from the local Taungurung language, “Omaroo” translates to “beautiful view,” perfectly encapsulating the essence of this serene getaway. Perched on a 5-acre estate, Omaroo overlooks rolling hills, the Brankeet Arm of Lake Eildon, and the Strathbogie Ranges, offering breathtaking sunset vistas. Just 3km from Bonnie Doon and a short 45-minute drive from Mt Buller ski fields, it’s an ideal location for both relaxation and adventure.

Originally a corrugated-iron farm shed, Omaroo has been transformed into a charming two-bedroom guesthouse accommodating up to six guests. The Cottage features two queen bedrooms, a well-appointed bathroom, and a spacious living area with additional sleeping options—all furnished with luxurious linens for utmost comfort.

What truly distinguishes Omaroo is the genuine hospitality of owners Keren and Jon. Their passion for hosting shines through in every detail, from welcoming pets and horses to arranging activities like horse riding and pet-sitting. They even provide shuttle services to local dining spots, ensuring a stress-free stay for up to four guests.

Guests at Omaroo can enjoy picking fresh fruit from the orchard, relaxing in the large solar-heated pool, and exploring nearby walking trails and 4WD routes. In winter, the proximity to Mt Buller offers prime skiing and snowboarding, with convenient shuttle access from Mansfield. A standout experience is the Mansfield to Craig’s Hut trail, a must-do for outdoor enthusiasts.

Beyond its natural charms, Omaroo is perfectly situated for activities like hot air ballooning, cycling the Great Victorian Rail Trail, and attending local events such as the Mansfield Picnic Races and Melbourne Cup festivities. Lake Eildon also provides opportunities for water sports, ensuring year-round enjoyment. Guests are free to roam the property and can climb the hill at the rear of the property for stunning views, beautifully landscaped gardens, herb garden, veggie patch and fruit orchard. Kids love visiting the neighbour’s animals to feed Jeff the Goat, Frank the Pig, and Flash the horse and explore a dam filled with frogs

Whether basking in summer wildflowers or embracing snowy winters, Omaroo High Country Retreat invites guests to unwind and experience true high country hospitality. It’s a place where stunning landscapes, local delights, and warm welcomes converge, offering an authentic Australian escape reminiscent of the iconic sentiments from ‘The Castle.’ Discover relaxation and embark on an unforgettable journey at Omaroo High Country Retreat.
