Welcome to "Kyandra"
Located 28km west of Ararat, this 92 hectare property is nestled at the base of Mt William, the highest peak in the Grampians National Park.
Kyandra Cottage is a perfect retreat for weekend getaways and lengthy breaks. The views are breath-taking and the variety of flora and fauna are extensive.
The cottage accommodates 4 adults or 2 adults and 2 children in 2 bedrooms. The main bedroom has a queen size bed whilst there are 2 single beds in the other room, both have wardrobe space and drawers.
There is one bathroom with shower and flush toilet.
The kitchen is equipped with a microwave oven, gas stove and refrigerator, crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils.
The living area has a wood heater to warm the cottage during the colder months, a TV, DVD and radio/CD player which accepts MP3 players. A glass sliding door opens out from the dining room table onto a large outside deck which faces west. It's the perfect place to sit back with a glass of wine and enjoy the serenity whilst gazing out over the ever changing panorama of the mountain range. A pathed patio on the other side of the house faces east and is the right spot to watch the sun rise and bask in the early morning sunshine.
Solar panels and storage batteries provide electricity and tank water is supplied for all domestic usage.
The property is pet friendly, provided that the animal is kept outside and will not interfere with the wildlife. A kennel is available.
Wildflowers and orchids abound at varying times of the year. Wildlife can be seen regularly wandering through the bush as well as many birds frequent the native habitat surrounding the property. A fire pit is provided outside for use in the winter months, toast marshmallows whilst you sit outside and wonder at the enormity of the night skies in the bush.
The Grampians area has many walking tracks, that cater to all levels of experience, Mt William Picnic Ground and Kalymna Falls are close to the property and maps are provided to show you the closest attractions.
Moyston is the ideal base from which to explore the region's many natural attractions and the vineyards of the district.

Amazing getaway at an affordable price
We had an amazing weekend at this lovely place.
Great Quiet place to stay...Good for the Soul!
This was our third stay at Kayandra. We love the peace and quiet at the cottage. Sitting around a camp fire at night is always a highlight! Thanks Bill & Annette, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We had such a wonderful stay at Kyandra. We arrived after dark to a warm, cosy cottage with the fire already going. The cottage was immaculately clean and had everything you could need, the chocolates were a nice surprise too. It was a perfect place for our little family and thank you for the fresh eggs!
Really loved our stay at the cottage. Brilliant location, breathtaking views, warm and cosy inside, flora and fauna everywhere, clean and affordable. Thankyou so much Annette and Bill for having us and thankyou again for lighting the fire just before we got there. We had an awesome weekend.
So pleased to have found such a wonderful place to stay. I can't recommend it highly enough.
We think its great - glad to hear you also enjoyed the peace and serenity
A hidden gem
Spotlessly clean and well maintained. What you get is more than what you see. Every need is well anticipated and catered for is a simple yet stylish way. My background is 5 star hotels around the world and Kyandra catered for me better than 5*****. The property is very private and I have returned to Melbourne absolutely relaxed and recharged. Thank you Annette and partner ( apologies I forgot his name)!!!!
Thank you Lorraine, the freezing mornings would have been a challenge for you all, but I am so pleased that you managed the elements and returned to Melbourne revived and relaxed.
