Wherever you travel in Australia, it's important to be aware of local conditions and to stay safe. Flood, fire, strong winds, trees blocking roads and other hazards can affect your journey, so stay informed. A starting point is to download the emergency information app to your phone for each state you are visiting. In Victoria it's VicEmergency, and tune into the local ABC radio station for regular updates.
All a hop, skip and jump from the front door of this B & B near Wilsons Prom. Come and experience the natural, unspoilt beauty of Prom Country ... we love it and think you will too!
Llarrinda Bed & Breakfast near Wilsons Prom is a nature lover's paradise that offers beautifully appointed accommodation for up to six people.
This spacious accommodation sits on 2.5 acres of green rolling hills, just six minutes from the bustling township of Foster, 30 minutes from the gates of Wilsons Promontory National Park and 20 minutes from the beautiful beaches of Waratah Bay and Sandy Point.
Every room has views across Corner Inlet to the northern peaks of Wilsons Promontory National Park, and sliding doors to the verandah, where you can soak in the views, be entertained by the passing parade of parrots, luxuriate in the outdoor spa or stay warm in front of the chiminea.
Llarrinda is our home, and while you don't have the whole house exclusively to yourselves, it is zoned so that each guest has complete privacy, and access to all the comforts that this Bed and Breakfast accommodation near Wilsons Prom has to offer.
We welcome you to share the main part of the house with us. Here you can enjoy our 'signature' Continental breakfast in the dining room (included), and relax with a glass of wine in front of the big open fireplace.
You are also welcome to explore our land (feel free to pull some weeds along the way!), spot wildlife, study the night sky and become acquainted with our friendly sheep who will, given the chance, eat right from your hands. The most vocal (and fat) one is Lamby, and he's also the most friendly. He will come running in anticipation of food, but will settle for a luxurious massage or gentle scratch under the chin. Two of our sheep are Wiltshire Longhorns, which shed their own wool and look like Rastafarians in Spring, and the coloured ones are Dorpers, which should shed their wool, but don't. We love them all.
We fell in love with this part of Victoria in 1997, while travelling back to Melbourne along the South Gippsland Highway after a weekend away. We took a detour to Agnes Falls, just north of Toora, and were wowed by the absolute beauty of the area.
We had visited Wilsons Prom years before, but had never truly explored this southern-most corner of Victoria. But when we finally did come back, we fell in love.
We knew then that we had to be here and spent every spare weekend coming to Foster to search of a place that we would one day call home, near Wilsons Promontory National Park.
We couldn’t believe our luck when we found a 2.5-acre paddock with stunning coastal views and a cool, deep gully with waterfalls, wallabies and other amazing wildlife. It was a piece of paradise that had been on the market for two years and the owner was keen to sell.
We didn’t know what sort of house we would build but one thing was for sure, every room had to have ‘that’ view across the water to the northern peaks of Wilsons Prom. So, working with a local architect and builder we set about designing and building our ‘forever’ home. That was 20+ years ago and while work kept us in Melbourne for a few more years, our heads and our hearts were firmly here.
Friends used to say that our home would make a great B&B near Wilsons Prom but we hadn’t built it with that in mind and for years we pushed the idea away. But then one day it just felt right. So in late 2014 we opened our doors to guests from all over the world and have been privileged to welcome hundreds of truly wonderful people to our piece of paradise ever since.
Without doubt it’s the draw of Wilsons Promontory National Park that brings visitors to this corner of Victoria, but few could comprehend its majesty until seeing it first-hand. And it's the search for Bed & Breakfast accommodation near Wilson's Prom that brings guests here.
We’ve lost count of the number of guests who have told us that their travel literature just didn’t do this part of Victoria justice. Like us 20 years ago they had no idea about Tarra Bulga, Agnes Falls, Walkerville, Cape Liptrap, Waratah Bay - or the vibrant communities of Foster, Fish Creek, Toora and Meeniyan. They are astonished at the landscape, the views, the wildlife and the range of things to see and do and they so often regret not being able to stay longer.
When they leave they say that that is one of the most beautiful parts of Australia - and we agree. How lucky we are to live here. And how privileged we are to be able to welcome you to our piece of heaven. Welcome.
