Our dogs love the beach, and we love our dogs. When the time came to plan a getaway, we wanted somewhere peaceful, relaxing, dog friendly and near the beach. Burrum River Retreat located just a 5 minute drive from the heart of Apollo Bay ticked all the boxes. It’s a charming three bedroom, pet friendly farm house with a spa bath, a wood fire and a very relaxing outdoor deck area. It was not uncommon to encounter sheep, cattle, and even (to my delight) a horse whilst staying at the property.
The majority of our trip was spent relaxing or at the beach, but we did also brave the narrow, winding mountain roads to visit Beauchamp Falls. The falls were nothing too spectacular but the surrounding forest on the walk to the falls was beautiful, it felt like a different world. If you get the chance, also head to Marriners Lookout to take in the stunning view of Apollo Bay.
Below are some of my photos from the trip, if you would like to check out or book the property, you can visit their page here.
