Where you’ll be

Yarck, Victoria, Australia

Located perfectly to everything and an easy 1 hour 45 minutes drive from Melbourne (approx 130km), Andana Executive Country Retreat can be found on a beautiful 200 acre farm property at the intersection of the Goulburn Valley and Maroondah Highways at Yarck.

So many of you may have heard about or seen the Yarck Hotel's sticker of "Where the Farck is Yarck". Well this retreat is located a minute from Yarck on the way to Mansfield (35mins) and Mt Buller, and ideally located to the water-haven of Lake Eildon (Eildon and Bonnie Doon 20mins plus), Lake Mountain (45mins), Yarra Valley (45mins), and Healesville ( 1hr). The two larger towns close by are Yea (15mins) and Alexandra (10mins). All of which provide endless opportunities to explore the great Australian countryside and doing half day to full day trips to the various attractions, markets, and gourmet food and wine locations.

The property borders the Great Victoria Rail Trail, so bring your Horse or Bicycle and directly access the rail trail. Being located approximately half way along the 134km Rail Trail, for the adventurous and fit you can ride to Mansfield or Tallarook. Or take an easier ride to Yea, Alexandra, or Bonnie Doon. If that is too far, take an easy ride or walk into Yarck and stop at the General Store for a gourmet pie, the Giddy Goat Cafe for a snack and coffee, or a cold drink at the Yarck Hotel.

From November through January, the Cherry factory in Yarck Is open to the public and is approximately 10min walk.

The farm property is a picturesque gently undulating hills filled with trees, wildlife, farm animals, and 5 dams which makes a pleasant walk to explore. Take a walk to back of the property at sunrise/sunset and take in the majestical view of black mountain.

Overall a unique property which will provide a fantastic experience for that country getaway.
