Grounds

165 acres of grasslands visited by kangaroos at dawn and dusk, woodlands where koalas doze and a tranquil spring where you may see Yellow Robins, King Parrots and Yellow-Bellied Gliders. Take a map and explore the carefully designed private walking tracks. There are many beautifully secluded spots to spend some time or enjoy a picnic.

Nature Gallery

The Great Ocean Ecolodge is proud to host the Nature Gallery, a collection of artworks created by local artists celebrating the natural beauty of the Great Ocean Road.

The collection includes varied mediums including photography, painting, embroidery, pastel, ink and pencil drawings, lithographs and furniture carefully constructed from driftwood.

All artwork is for sale and artists generously donate a proportion of the proceeds from each sale to the Conservation Ecology Centre to help conserve the plants, animals and landscapes that inspire them. This is a special opportunity to take a little of the Great Ocean Road’s wild and intriguing natural inspiration home with you.

Hall

The Hall overlooks grasslands, where mobs of kangaroos come to graze against the backdrop of the Otway Ranges. Filled with light, warm and cosy in winter and beautifully cool in summer, the Hall includes the Dining Room, Guest Lounge and Library.

Library

Located within the Hall, the Library is filled with field guides and other useful reference books.  This is an ideal place to check up on sightings and catch up on some of the finer points of natural history.
