The East Gippsland Rail Trail runs along Kettles Lane (no though Road) only 100 metres from the property. The house is 13 km from Metung and 18 km from Lakes Entrance; with a 3 km drive to the local store at Johnsonville or 5km to Swan Reach on the Tambo where there are boating ramps and many spots to fish along the river bank. It is a wonderful haven from which to explore East Gippsland being convieniently located between the snow fields and the sea and an easy drive to the Buchan Caves Discover the Bruthen Walking Trails, the Twin Rivers Farm-Food & Wine Trail, the Colquhoun State Forest, Lake Tyers or go for a day trip to Dinner Plain or the Snowy River National Park.


Tambo Trails by the Ringbark is situated on 2.4 hectares of park land overlooking its' own dam 100m away. Fruit trees have been planted.

The Ringbark stands sentinel to the wonderful forests that once covered East Gippsland. The house looks north over rolling hills of timber and farmland. There is a large deck from which to enjoy the sunset, away from city noise and pollution, and stars to view unimpeded by city lights

The house was built in 2010 and there is plenty of space for boats and trailers. Fruit trees have been planted and hopefully will provide fresh fruit for guests in years to come

lovely peaceful spot to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

had a lovely stay at Tambo Trails by the Ringbark, with our son and 2 dogs - lots of space to explore, unwind and just watch the nearby cows and horses. House was very comfortable and perfect for the four legged family members to run and swim in the dam.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property, very clean and well cared for. Our big bouncy boxer dog enjoyed the space and the dam and was allowed inside, although chose to be outside most of the time. This is a secure property for your dog with friendly neighbours and lots of wildlife and farm animals nearby. We will certainly be returning and highly recommend it.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoy our stay at his beautiful house. The scenery was beautiful and the house was nice and clean. The host Hilary was great in term of correspondence and helpfulness.

Totally recommend staying here.

PS- the only thing is that the website Stayz does not reflect the correct price. The house said occupy up to 6 ppl but the price quoted is only for 2ppl. Extra adults and kids are charged extra. We were made aware straight away but it felt like hidden costs. We made the decision to go ahead and book the place and did not regret it as the place was lovely.
