Red Earth Lodge situated near Bright in NE Victoria, has 3 fully equipped bedrooms. The 1st floor is occupied by an indulgent master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and spa bath with views across virgin forest that spoil you. Downstairs there are luxurious queen and double bedrooms, with a shared bathroom that includes a shower and an elegant cast iron claw-foot bath.
Our property is at the foot of Mt Buffalo and backs onto Mt Buffalo National Park. Scattered around the grounds are approximately 100 fruit trees, planted as rent by those who stayed in the original hut throughout the years. We'd love you to help yourselves to our organic lemons and whatever other fruit you can find during your stay.
Our property is managed in accordance with Land for Wildlife, a
voluntary scheme that encourages and assists private landowners to provide habitats for wildlife on their property.We provide a spotlight for guests to search for animals at night. You are likely to see wombats, wallabies, kookaburras, lyre birds, bower birds and even occasionally the rare yellow bellied gliding possum on our property.
We take fire safety seriously and have constructed the house to comply with the draft Australian Standard for houses in high bush fire risk areas (the standard that has now been applied to all rural homes since the Black Saturday fires). It is built on a concrete base, clad in a naturally fire resistant timber, all the external roof timber is painted with fire resistant paint and there is an external sprinkler system. Our advice will always be for our guests to not stay at Red Earth Lodge if there is risk of bushfire.
