RETRO GETAWAY - Step back in time to the 1970’s. We have a totally original Franklin 1972 caravan (called Frankie of course) to stay in, complete with all the original fittings. For example, fully original: clock (still working); plates; cutlery; tea towels; plates; pots and pans and other hidden treasures.
So, dig out those flares, platforms and hippie-chic prints and come and experience a real Retro/Vintage adventure in a truly beautiful glamping setting.

Die Unterkunft
As you look out of Frankie, you can see both the distant Warburton Ranges, as well over-looking a fern-lined creek dotted with towering Mountain Ash trees.

Outdoor seating area (under cover), Bar Fridge, BBQ, Fire Pit, Festoon Lights - everything you need for a little getaway..

It is hard to believe that this secluded piece of paradise is only an hour’s drive from Melbourne’s CBD.
Frankie is only 10 mins drive from Emerald, (home of the Puffing Billy steam train). There are plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants, wineries and tourist attractions in the area.

Frankie – experience a totally different world, picturesque and serene, but less than an hour from Melbourne.

The 40-acre (16Ha) property is centrally located on a sealed road, midway between the townships of Emerald, Monbulk and Kallista. Excellent supermarkets and shops are located in Emerald and Monbulk (10 mins by car). Frankie is located in the heart of the area known as the Dandenongs, renowned for its beautiful scenery and pretty townships. There are many things to do in the area including wineries, cafes, restaurants and beautiful gardens. In Belgrave, there is the Cameo Cinema complex, much loved by locals, (15 minutes away), containing in part an original "art deco" cinema. An excellent train service to Melbourne also operates from Belgrave (less than an hour to city). Puffing Billy historic steam train line operates from Emerald, be sure to book ahead. There are also National Parks to visit and numerous walks/bike trails to go on. In fact, one walking trail is located literally 20 metres from your cottage (adjoins estate boundary). Dandenong Ranges National Park is only 15 mins away by car.

Did you know the Dandenong Ranges is home to the U-Pick and it's only an hour away from Melbourne?

We were the first place in Australia to do it! Find yourself in an orchard this season.

We all love the sweet juiciness of a perfectly ripe peach, the explosion in our mouths as that delicious cherry or strawberry bursts with the first bite. It's a fact: fruit always tastes better in the sunshine, under the very tree it grew on.

Join us and fill up your buckets and baskets with the freshest most delicious produce of the season. Indulge in locally made ice-cream, cakes and other sources of family favourites after you've wandered the orchard rows.

Pack the sunhat and sunscreen and enjoy a fabulous day in the country!
