Spend your days fishing in mountain streams, baiting up on a lakeside jetty, searching for dolphins in the Gippsland Lakes or venturing off on horseback into the High Country. That is if you can resist just stretching out by the pool at your hotel and soaking up the sunshine, the sea breeze and the calls of seafaring birds.
With tropical gardens, water-facing views, outdoor barbecues and on-site spas for mum and dad to escape to, short- and long stay accommodation options are designed with families in mind. Imagine waking the kids to a complimentary breakfast spread or enjoying a family game of cricket in your cottage garden. From air conditioning to cosy fireplaces, hotels and apartments alike offer the freedom of a waterfront retreat year-round.
