The new Shakespeare's Cottage is fully self-contained with a large bedroom, sitting room with sofa bed, and a kitchen. The balcony, windows and garden overlook the beautiful Doongalla forest. In the early morning and evening time you are likely to see deers, wallabies and occasionally wombats and echidnas passing by.

A Camelot Tower Cottage and Penthouse, with Sandstone Suite, Shakespeare's Cottage is craftsman-built, offering luxurious accommodation in a unique and private setting. Attention to detail is obvious throughout and yours to enjoy. Quality fittings and furnishings are apparent within all of these superb establishments. Enjoy a delightful breakfast delivered to your requirements or danish croissants, with a well-stocked fridge and pantry. There are three gorgeous buildings with your own king-size oval full-length spa baths.

We are within 45 minutes drive from Melbourne CBD and are also easily accessed via public transport. Your motor car is also well accommodated with remote controlled garages or enclosed carports for guests.

Just minutes away you can reach the Mt. Dandenong Ranges lookout or the William Ricketts Sanctuary, the enchanted place of this famous sculptor. We can also offer you a picnic basket in our beautiful local established gardens.

The many delightful restaurants, including SkyHigh, and craft shops of Olinda are only a short 6 to 8 minute walk away and it is only a further 10 minutes to the National Rhododendron Gardens, the challenging Olinda Golf Course and the RJ Hamer Arboretum, where you can take along a picnic basket and enjoy the view.

Stay on City Link as it crosses the Bolte Bridge and follow the sign to the "South Eastern Suburbs". Proceed through the Burnley Tunnel, remaining on City
Link as it exits the tunnel (this road is known as the South Eastern or Monash Freeway). Continue travelling on this freeway to the exit for Ferntree Gully Road on your left, exit and travel along Ferntree Gully Road for about 8 kilometres, until you reach the intersection with Burwood Highway. Turn right at this intersection and travel about another 3 kilometres until you get to the base of the mountain, where you will see a "Mount Dandenong Tourist Road, Olinda" exit on your left. Take this exit and travel 10 kilometres to the top
of the Mountain, until you reach Olinda Village, where you will see the Cuckoo Restaurant on the right. Pass the Cuckoo Restaurant until you reach the Mt. Dandenong Hotel, which is also on the right hand side of the main highway. Opposite the Mt. Dandenong Hotel is Ridge Road, turn left and pass 3 shops and 3 houses. The first street on the left off Ridge Road is a private dirt road called Sunset Avenue, there is a number ‘9’ on a large white rock, next to the sign saying Camelot Tower & Penthouse.

To reach A Camelot Tower and Penthouse by train, catch the Belgrave Line train from any of the city’s Railway Stations to Belgrave Station. Catch the US Bus Lines Bus Route 694 which will take you to Olinda Village at the top of the mountain. The bus stop is immediately outside the railway station. Once you reach Olinda, the bus will stop at the front of Kellie’s Bar, from here it is a six minute walk to Camelot Tower and Penthouse. Alternatively, you can catch a Lilydale bound train, get off at Croydon Railway Station and then catch a Ventura Bus Lines Bus Route 688, which also stops  at the Kellie’s Bar restaurant.

There are many things to see and do around Camelot Tower and Penthouse. We are within walking distance from eight delightful restaurants and the craft shops of Olinda, the National Rhododendron Gardens, the challenging Olinda Golf Course and the Mt. Dandenong area. You may use our hideaway as your base for an exploration of the Yarra Valley wineries or a trip through the mountains on the famous Puffing Billy steam train. While staying with us, visit William Ricketts Sanctuary and explore the natural setting featuring mystical sculptures half hidden among ferns along the pathways. Olinda Golf Course and the Golfhouse cafe restaurant are also close by, majestically perched upon Melbourne's famous Dandenong ranges, and Olinda Golf Course and Barrachi Restaurant offer the best views in the mountains. Expansive views over Silvan Dam, the Yarra Valley and neighbouring mountain ranges stimulate the senses and revive the soul.
