About the property

Cosy one bedroom unit set on a farm location close to Warburton township.

Small but quaint. Platypus Den is a tidy, peaceful one bedroom unit attached directly to "Harcourt" a heritage listed home and coach house, circa 1900. Wonderful old garden setting with many significant trees. Guests can enjoy a hobby farm environment with direct private access to over 300m Yarra river frontage.

The Yarra River frontage includes the famous river bend where the river deepens and widens. The resident platypus can often be seen early morning and at dusk. Guests can fish, canoe, picnic or swim at the river bend.

The unit includes kitchenette with microwave, toaster, mini fridge, electric stove/oven, TV, electric heating/cooling and it's own bathroom with shower.

Tea, coffee and basic provisions provided

The Warburton Rail Trail is located opposite Platypus Den, perfect for a nice walk or bike ride.

Warburton township is a 10 - 15 walk away, where you can enjoy a relaxing cup of coffee in one of the many cafes or visit the famous Warburton Waterwheel.

Explore the area La La Falls, Upper Yarra Dam and Redwoods Forest, just to name a few of the local sights, being only a short drive away.

Platypus Den is accessible by public transport with a bus stop close by.

There is off street parking and room for larger vehicles.

Suitable for singles or couples

No pets because of farm animals

Great location with friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to find the studio warm and cosy. Everything was as described or better. The location by the river was idyllic and quite some time was spent on the banks relaxing. Will definitely be going back
