The Hermitage is situated on the scenic Black Spur at Narbethong. It is a lovely 20 minute drive from Healesville and Marysville is only 15 minutes away.
The Hermitage sits on 32 acres and was built in 1894 by renowned photographer J.W. Lindt and over the years much has been restored to make the house more comfortable and functional.
