Variety in Victoria

Visitors to Victoria, a southern state of Australia, need not look far to find accommodation that will make their stay one to remember. From city rooftop glamping to Tolkien-themed rooms; from medieval stays to sleeping in a water tank, Victoria continues to surprise with quirky accommodation options.

The Pole House

A landmark along the Great Ocean Road, and probably the most photographed home in Victoria (if not Australia), The Pole House is suspended 40 meters above sea level (literally). With a walkway extending from the cliff top to the building, the Pole House provides a 360-degree view over Fairhaven Beach, the longest stretch of beach on the Great Ocean Road. Recently renovated, its decor is sleek and modern, and it has everything needed for a relaxing getaway. The bed is situated right by a window looking directly over the ocean, and the sitting room is complete with fireplace to ensure winter days are just as romantic as summer evenings spent on the balcony. 


Mira Mira

Described by its owners as the ‘weirdest accommodation of them all’, Mira Mira offers a choice of three individually themed self-contained two-bedroom retreats located in the foothills of Mt Baw Baw, approximately 90 minutes drive from Melbourne. Each retreat is designed to create a fantasy land for its guests. Carved into the hillside, the underground Cave House is accessed through a doorway shaped as the mouth of Magog via a winding stairwell lit by fire lanterns. The Japanese Zen Retreat is set on a pond at the base of a gully and its décor is based on the Kyoto Palace. Tanglewood is a Gaudi-inspired sculpture-come-retreat nestled amongst the trees, providing guests the opportunity to ‘live in art’. Set on a 22 acre property that borders onto State Forest, each Mira Mira retreat is positioned to ensure maximum privacy and surrounded by native wildlife.
