The Secret Refuge at Portland Gate is a new modern, spacious 3 bedroom brick cottage set amongst 25 acres of Natural Bush-land with visiting wildlife. Guests are welcome to stroll around the property, feed the native birds, or picnic in the gardens of the main residence. The cottage is located on the grounds of the property 'Portland Gate" and guests have their own private outdoor entertainment area with a BBQ and fire pit which is ideal to sit around in the evening and stargaze.

The space
The property is home to many native birds and animals who pass through including wallabies, kangaroos and wombats. You can enjoy feeding and watching the many native birds feed on the bird feeders. The cottage is located at the rear of the property at 1146 Pipers Flat Road, Portland nestled amongst natural bushland with a mountain view from the living and entertainment area. The property was a wildlife refuge many years ago and native animals still visit and we respect and provide them space.
