My place is close to Great Ocean Rd, Melba Gully Park with rain forest & glow worms. You’ll love my place because of its peace & quiet. Set in 20 acres of garden with lots of birdlife. Hosted B & B separate guest sitting room with a wood fire & breakfast area. Our property is eco friendly & sustainable generating all our own electricity growing our own firewood & fruit that is turned into jams, scrambled hens eggs are on the menu at breakfast. My place is good for couples & not suitable for kids

Other things to note

The Otway Ranges are a unique place to visit, however you need to be aware that mobile phone coverage can be patchy and there are many blackspots. Telstra provide the best service for our location, most other companies have no service outside of major towns. Unfortunately this means it is impossible for us to provide wifi at the moment.

Lovely garden view from room. Very beautiful setting on extensive gardens with brilliant coloured rosella birds flying around. Virginia was a wonderful host and served us a very filling breakfast including eggs from their own chickens and a choice of at least a dozen home made jams. Just wished we could have stayed more than one night. Can certainly give Melba's Gully B and B a well deserved 5 stars.

You cannot go wrong with this wonderful farm/botanical heaven. Extras galore including fresh eggs and homemade jams. Comfortable -best sleep I have had in Australia! Wonderful conversation and Virginia and Bob are kind and generous hosts.

Easily the most relaxing AirBnB experience I've ever had. Peaceful and cozy B&B in the Otway forest. Beautiful gardens surrounding the house with fresh eggs and homemade fruit jam. Highly recommended if you are visiting the Great Ocean Road and passing through Melba Gully. Also a quick drive to the 12 apostles if you are heading there next. If you are a dog person, they have the kindest greyhounds who love human affection. If you're not a dog person, the greyhounds are very well behaved and stay on their side of the house. Highly recommended!

Virginia is a wonderful host. Lavers Hill is 'where the forest meets the sea'. No better place to experience this than at Virginia's place: surrounded by a beautiful garden and the forest, Virginia runs her place in symbiosis with nature and the environment and with countryside hospitality as enjoyable as her home-made jams!
