High Peaks Cottages

Set in the serene Tanjil Valley at the base of the Baw Baw foot hills in West Gippsland and only a 1.5 hours drive from Melbourne and a short 45 minute drive to Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resort. With spectacular mountain views, relax on the deck or Alfresco areas and enjoy a glass of local wine surrounded by native birds and wildlife. During those icy cold winter months just sit in front of the wood fired heater watching the snow fall on Mount Baw Baw.

Try your luck down by the River flowing through the property for some rainbow trout. Relish cooking your catch in the undercover barbecue pergola surrounded by fresh mountain air and the company of family and friends. Or sit around the outdoor fire pit (Mountain Gum Cottage Only) telling stories about the one that got away.

Select from three architecturally designed cottages each with their own distinct styling.High Peaks management pride themselves on having a low carbon footprint, with all our cottages having double glazed windows and doors and a high level of insulation this offers us a Six Star Energy Rating.

Our electricty is produced via a Solar Sunwerx solar panel array and is stored and maintained on site via a SOLAX Inverter and battery storage system. We therefore do not have Air-conditioning units and only use efficient ceiling fans during the summer months.

Our cleaning products and toiletries are 100 percent Eco Friendly, we also use Sureburn brand All Natural fire lighters which are 100% Australian Made for our combustion heaters. All of the sewage, sullage and other liquid wastes produced by the cottages are treated on site to EPA Guidelines and Standards by our High Tech Waste Water Treatment plant.

Our firewood is collected from fallen trees but we still leave many logs on the ground as native wildlife habitat.

As you can see, we are trying hard to make a difference so during your stay if you can Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and think about the environment as we do our efforts and yours will only better our planet long term.
