Welcome to your weekend escape at Tanjil Bren
Ski, Fish, Walk or just Relax.........
Our three lodges are located in the old gold prospector’s village of Tanjil Bren, population 6. This historical village is only a 2-2 1/2 hours drive east of Melbourne, in the Baw Baw ranges. We are the closest off mountain accommodation to Mt Baw Baw Ski Resort, only 20 minutes away. Our Mt Baw Baw accommodation is a great place for weekend getaways or ski vacations. Mt Baw Baw offers great skiing, both downhill, cross country and snow boarding.
Tanjil Bren is still an undiscovered place of fresh air, clean water, and tranquility in the heart of the forest. It is an ideal place for a weekend getaway to clear the mind and refresh the body. Here, you can relax in rustic luxury in front of a log fire. Firewood is supplied and burning upon arrival in cold weather. Wood boxes are located adjacent to the combustion heaters therefore no chopping of wood is necessary. Solar power provides electricity and gas is used for cooking, hot water, fridge and lighting in this eco friendly Mt Baw Baw accommodation. The gas lights and candles make for a very cosy atmosphere. The water is from a natural spring that originates from a steep highland close by. You will be surprised at how good it tastes.
The abundance of bird life is a birdwatchers paradise, from tiny Blue Wrens, Lyrebirds, Rosella’s, King Parrots, black and white Cockatoos, Kookaburras, Wattle Birds and Eagles who soar high up in the valley thermals.
Wombats, Wallabies, Possums, Echidnas, and for the very serious animal lover, Deer can sometimes be spotted close to the village. Koalas have been seen as close as Icy Creek and Platypus in the local river, a 3 minuite drive from the lodges.
There is a variety of things to do, ski, fish, bush walk or you may just choose to relax with your family or friends in front of the log fire. Our Mt Baw Baw accommodation is a great place to “get away” and feed the birds during the day and nocturnal animals at night or choose from one of the many things to do in our 'Activities' section. In the evenings you will be amazed at the magnificent blanket of brilliant stars, and watch in awe at the show of shooting stars and satellites. Take your time and look around our website. These vacaction rentals are far from your normal accommodation, both interesting, fun and comfortable. We know you are going to have a great time up here. We will look forward to seeing you, where you will be most welcome.
