The Experience

walking trails & wildlife

With over 12km of bush walking trails through our 120-acre private nature reserve, walkers and bikers will enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding Yarra Valley upon reaching the summit; experience the unique geological structure and natural beauty of Yering Gorge and discover the perfect picnic spot on the banks of the Yarra River. 

Our nature reserve is home to Eastern Grey kangaroos, echidnas and wombats; providing Yering Gorge Cottages’ guests with a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with some of Australia’s most iconic wildlife.  Occasionally spotted is our ‘rare’ white kangaroo which is a genetic strain of the Eastern Grey. 

The Gorge is also home to 85+ species of native bird life including Eastern and Crimson Rosellas, Sulpur-Crested cockatoos, kookaburras, Rainbow Lorikeets, different species of Grass Parrots, several owl species, Kingfishers and a nesting pair of Wedge Tail Eagles.

The Yering Gorge section of the Yarra River is approximately three kilometres in length and is home to many native fish species including the Macquarie Perch together with several breeding Platypus families. 

Yering Gorge is also home to many species of native flora.  


Guests staying at Yering Gorge Cottages have full access to The Eastern Golf Club facilities including a fully equipped Fitness Centre, Golf Performance Centre and a championship sized tennis court.
