Tourism Region: Yarra Valley & Dandenong Ranges
A rare opportunity to secure one of the area’s most highly regarded hospitality icons in the heart of the idyllic Dandenong Ranges. This sustainable full time business has allowed the owners of Arcadia Cottages to live, work, play and raise a family all without leaving home. It is rare to find a package that includes a proven business record and an idyllic lifestyle all in one place and just an hour from Melbourne. The heart of the business is the 4 private cottages hidden amongst the 2.4 acres of sun-soaked north facing gardens with ornamental ponds, ancient oaks, rhododendrons and majestic trees. The cottages are individually designed and furnished to create rich stylish interiors with cathedral ceilings, garden vistas, glass conservatory rooms and indoor spas. The Architect designed owner’s residence is separately positioned within a private garden. The first floor master bedroom and private balcony enjoy stunning valley views and the two spacious ground floor bedrooms have their own garden vistas. The newly appointed kitchen, dining and living areas are the focus of family living and with beautiful garden outlooks from every room and no discernible neighbours you’ll need to remind yourself that you’re just a 5 minute walk to the shops and restaurants of Olinda.

ABOUT THIS REGION Yarra Valley The Yarra Valley is the name given to the region surrounding the Yarra River in Victoria, Australia. The river originates approximately 90 kilometres east of the City of Melbourne and flows towards it and out into Port Phillip Bay. The name Yarra Valley is usually used in reference to the upper regions surrounding the Yarra River and generally does not encompass the lower regions including the city and suburban areas, where the topography flattens out, or the upper reaches which are in inaccessible bushland. Included in the Yarra Valley is the sub-region of Upper Yarra (or the Upper Yarra Valley) which encompasses the towns of the former Shire of Upper Yarra in the catchment area upstream of and including Woori Yallock. The Yarra Valley a popular day-trip and tourist area, featuring a range of natural features and agricultural produce, as well as the Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail. The Yarra Valley is host to a thriving wine growing industry. The area's relatively cool climate makes it particularly suited to the production of high-quality chardonnay, pinot noir and sparkling wine. It is also home to the Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary and is a gateway to the Lake Mountain ski fields. Yarra Valley towns fall under the Nillumbik and Yarra Ranges Councils. Major towns include Yarra Glen, Healesville and Warburton. Dandenong Ranges The Dandenong Ranges (commonly just the Dandenongs) are a set of low mountain ranges, rising to 633 metres at Mount Dandenong, approximately 35 km east of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The ranges consist mostly of rolling hills, steeply weathered valleys and gullies covered in thick temperate rainforest, predominantly of tall Mountain Ash trees and dense ferny undergrowth. After European settlement in the region, the range was used as a main source of timber for Melbourne. The ranges were popular with day-trippers from the 1870s onwards. Much of the Dandenongs were protected by parklands as early as 1882 and by 1987 these parklands were amalgamated to form the Dandenong Ranges National Park, which was added to again in 1997. The range experiences light to moderate snow falls a few times most years, frequently between late winter and late spring. Today, the Dandenongs are home to over 100,000 residents and the area is popular amongst visitors, many of which stay for the weekend at the various Bed & Breakfasts through the region. The popular Puffing Billy Railway, a heritage steam railway, runs through the southern parts of the Dandenongs. The Dandenong Ranges towns fall under the Yarra Ranges Shire Councils. Major towns include Mt Dandenong, Olinda, Sassafras, Emerald and Gembrook.
