For those of you looking for accommodation options we can highly recommend either Jetty Road Retreat or on airbnb a great little cottage as both are fantastic: clean, groovy and have stunning views of the lakes, islands and ocean. Best of all they are both only a short drive or walk from our studio.
And if your partner is lucky enough to be traveling with you then they will have plenty to occupy their time whilst you are busy in the workshop. Nungurner provides plenty of outdoorsy activities including fishing, swimming, sailing and kayaking on and in the lake. Bush-walking and mountain-biking in the nearby Colquhoun forest is really great and there are two other MTB parks, each less than an hour away. Surfing at Red Bluff near Lakes Entrance is a hoot when the swell is up too - so pack your car with all the gear for a wonderful break!
