Had a very relaxing and peaceful week in the Grass Tree Eco Lodge which is comfortable, well-equipped and has a beautiful outlook on to a delightful treescape. The Victoria Valley and Mount Abrupt can be glimpsed in the distance. There was plenty of wildlife, including birds, and the walks on the property are very good. Further afield, the walks up Mounts Sturgeon, Abrupt (Mud-Dadjug) and Bainggug took us to wonderful views and were well-worthwhile. The Wonderland escarpment is also within reach for a day trip. Harry and Iwona are lovely hosts and this is definitely an accommodation and location to return to!

We had a great time at Aquila Eco Lodges. We stayed in the Cherry Tree house - beautiful outlook in to the trees, and amazing hospitality from Harry and Iwona. We definitely recommend ordering a breakfast hamper (with freshly baked bread!! ) . The lodges are right next to the Grampians National Park and there are hiking trails a few minutes drive from the lodges - we hiked up Mount Abrupt which was 10 minutes drive from the lodge although there are other walks which are even closer. The lodges are fully sustainable too with an eco tourism accreditation. Highly recommended.

We have just spent a relaxing midweek break at Aquila Eco Lodges. Greeted by kangaroos at reception and our hosts Harry and Iwona who made sure the fire was blazing and port decanter full on our arrival. The tree house lodges are well equipped and bushland views are spectacular from every window, even the shower ! Iwona’s home made bread and breakfast hamper was amazing. Thankyou so much.

Where do I start. We were given a great reception by our host Harry and his amazing wild Kangaroos! My Husband and father in law and I were very impressed. Our accomodation was clean and comfortable and spacious. The fire was lit before our arrival making it so inviting and the kind gesture of a glass (or two) of port to warm us up.. The views of the bush was in it self divine with the added bonus of the kangaroos All in all we can certainly recommend Aquila. Harry and Iwona are lovely humans and great hosts Thank you! The town is also well worth a visit lots of beautiful walks to do at every level of fitness and the old bakery YUMMY food though the lady doing the coffee a lilt bit grumpy though her staff made up for her lack of front of house politeness

Lovely people - Harry and Iwona... and the accommodation was spot on, just beautiful. The bush setting was great to explore with walking tracks and animals to see, especially kangaroos. Dunkeld was only a short drive away too. Thank you
