Funky, art-inspired, SC holiday apartment in leafy Emerald, Vic

Ferny Hill Retreat is one of the Dandenong Ranges hidden gems. It's tucked away in a leafy setting, yet only minutes from cafes, shops and local attractions. This magical getaway in Emerald is perfect for solo travellers, families, couples, creatives, writers and artists.


Watch a movie snuggled up on the living room sofa, or laze in the deep soaking tub before slipping into your cloud-soft bed. Artistically decorated inside and out, Ferny Hill Retreat caters for a variety of guests with free WIFI, Netflix, a mini office, a fully equipped kitchen and games for young and old. Your private patio sits alongside a lush fernery. Yep, tinkling waterfall and all!


Warm yourself by the garden fire pit, or be swept away to an enchanted land - our Fairy Village is as much a hit with the grownups as it is with the kids. Wander the garden paths to take in the quirky statuary or, if that sounds like too much work, just grab a seat and feed the birds. You may even spot Eddie, our resident echidna wandering around. 

To help you get the most out of your stay Ferny Hill Retreat offers guests an online Guidebook that's accessible on any device. It's packed with info on the property as well as top local attractions, places to eat, shops, maps and more. There are a few guest-only discounts too!


The artistry and magic of Ferny Hill Retreat are hidden behind a bright green gate in Emerald. Only an hour from Melbourne and just minutes to Puffing Billy, this whimsical home-away-from-home can be yours for a weekend, a week or longer...
