An oasis of comfort and charm in a world of its own. A little piece of history just 25kms from the City. Located in Melbourne's Valley of the Arts Warrandyte, Victoria, Australia. Kembla Cottage is the original caretakerís residence for Kembla, a turn of the century homestead located off a secluded road leading from the Yarra River and adjacent to the State Forest.

Established in 1912 among the foothills of the Great Dividing Range not far from Melbourne in a most delightful and peaceful location.

Kembla Cottage has privacy and seclusion. You can lose yourself in Kembla’s 10 acres of gardens and farm and find a spot to just sit and relax or walk in the adjacent state forest among towering gum trees or through deep fern gullies.

Enjoy a game on the sheltered tennis court just beyond your door, then cool off in the stone flagged swimming pool. Hand feed the steers and chickens. Watch the peacock stroll through the gardens.

Venture down to Warrandyte for a bite to eat at one of the quality restaurants which overlook the river. Warrandyte’s “village” atmosphere is well known for its craft shops, art galleries and wood fired bakery.

An open air market featuring high quality local produce and handicrafts is held monthly.

Local wineries are close by and the popular Yarra Valley vineyards are just 15 minutes drive away.
