Create@Warburton

Create@Warburton is only 75km from the Melbourne CBD but feels much further afield. Set on a large block, the retreat is nestled above the gorgeous township of Warburton and backs onto the Yarra Ranges National Park. Deer can sometimes be seen in the yard and King Parrots and Crimson Rosellas feed from the elevated back deck. Nearly all of the rooms have uninterrupted views of Mt Victoria (this sometimes is snow-capped in winter).

The Warburton retreat consists of:

  • A large, well-equipped kitchen
  • 2 separate living areas plus several nooks and crannies, and window seats to curl up and relax
  • 2 bathrooms
  • 4 bedrooms accommodating 13 guests

Bedroom 1 – two sets of bunks (4 single beds) and one single bed

  • Expansive deck overlooking the garden and Mt Victoria
  • Large laundry
  • Shed for bikes

A combustion heater, an open fireplace, and two split systems keep the retreat at the right temperature throughout the year.  Create at Warburton has chosen not to have a television to promote peace, creativity, and relaxation. An iPod, iPad mini and iPhone dock are provided so that you can play music.   Create@Warburton is a pet free retreat due to the abundance of wildlife in the area and has chosen not to have television reception to promote peace, creativity, and relaxation.

Local Attractions

Warburton Township

Warburton township abounds with quaint shops and excellent cafes and restaurants. There are several second-hand stores and funky clothing shops. Retro is alive and well with plenty of local attractions in Warburton. Take a walk along the Yarra River, as it gurgles past the shops, fish for trout and freshwater crayfish, or take a swim or tube ride.              

 

Cycling

There are numerous cycling opportunities in the area ranging from the gentle Warburton trail to the much more challenging Mt Donna Buang, the Acheron Way and Lake Mountain.

Create@Warburton is a great base camp for bike riders training for the 3 Peaks Challenge, the Alpine Classic, the Great Ocean and Otway Classic. There is also a plethora of mountain biking trails in the immediate area.

Orchards

Stone fruit, cherry, strawberry, and other orchards are close by and are not to be missed when fruit is in season.
