Where you’ll be

Sugarloaf, Victoria, Australia

We are situated in a place of natural beauty. Looking East we have spectacular views of Cape Patton and the State Forest climbing up over the hills. Looking West we have views all the way along the coast to Apollo Bay and beyond.

There is a secluded beach right across the road with amazing volcanic rock pools to explore, swimming holes in the rocks that warm up during the day and a sandy little beach.

There is also a spectacular 45 minute walk from Seacroft to the Carisbrook Waterfalls.

There is a major koala population 5 minutes up the road, a multitude of different birds, echidnas and kangaroos if you are lucky, fishing off the rocks in front, dolphins who regularly visit and whales in the winter!
