At the end of a day out on track, the 12 Apostles Lodge is a forest-hugged refuge three hours from Melbourne. This is where the foot spa awaits, your live-in chef, rainforest showers, kitchen garden, dining room stocked with local wines, and your king bedroom with spacious en suite.
The architecturally-designed lodge has been crafted with environmental sensitivity in mind. This translates to passive solar design, hydronic heating, low consumption electric and water fittings, on site waste water treatment and composting, plus a self-sufficient water supply. And there’s reason this eco-development is award-winning, delivering modern comforts with equal rigour. Expect Myrtle & Moss toiletries, hair dryers, library, mobile coverage (Telstra only) and limited wireless internet.
What’s more, the lodge is exclusively yours. The only way to stay is to join one of our walks. That means the moment you arrive, consider it home. Unpack your bags and get comfy. Five generous bedrooms can be converted to twin share or two single rooms depending on group requirements – all enjoying access to private en suite bathrooms.
The dining room has a lounge area well-suited for canapes when the fire pit isn’t crackling with friend-huddling flames. After a glass of regional red, move to the long table for your nightly two-course regional menu.

Onsite you’ll also find 24-hour tea and coffee facilities, gear drying room, daily newspapers and a lodge library well stocked with magazines, reference and fictional books. Ask about the lodge property walks, or wander the boutique shop. You’re not alone if you don’t stray far from the foot spa and dining table though!
*Alcoholic beverages are available in the lounge. These are not included in your package, but can be put on tab and settled with our staff at the end of your stay. We stock a small selection of house and premium wines and locally brewed beers by the bottle. As an eco-accredited operator, we support local wine and beer, however, you are welcome to BYO wine if necessary ($10 corkage per bottle of wine/six pack beer applies).
*One complimentary clothes wash (including soap) is included in your walk package, the Lodge Manager will explain how this is organised at your briefing on day one. Additional loads are charged to your tab to discourage excessive usage/environmental impact.
