Be transported to a 2-storey Hansel and Gretel style cottage in a forest right on the water on an unspoiled island where you can see koalas and wildlife up close in their natural environment. Located just 4 hours from Melbourne in the middle of the Gippsland Lakes, the largest inland waterway system in the southern hemisphere.
Enjoy a “slow stay” in our eco-friendly self-contained accomodation. Unplug from the outside world, reconnect with yourself and your heart felt desires.
We offer 2 unique Cottages, the Beach or Garden Cottage or book both as they can be interconnected for larger groups of up to 8 people.


Ethos of Swan Cove combines our love and appreciation of wildlife in nature, beauty and simplicity. We believe that spending quality “downtime” with your loved ones in a beautiful and relaxed setting surrounded by nature and sea air is the best way to slow down, switch off, connect and recharge.
