breakneck gorge


Perched on the top of Breakneck Gorge, overlooking Mount Franklin, Hepburn Springs and Daylesford, this architect designed luxury retreat has spectacular 360 degree views. Set on 45 acres Breakneck Gorge brings together design and nature by offering unique accommodation in the tranquillity of a country setting.

The retreat has easy access to well established bush-walking tracks, an abundance of local wildlife to watch and farm animals to feed. All just minutes from the main street of Daylesford!

The indoor/outdoor spa room allows you to relax in the double multijet hydrotherapy massage bath while soaking in the breathtaking views of Mount Franklin and beyond. Whether you spend sunset sipping drinks on the spa deck, preparing a BBQ under the pergola, inspecting the large organic vegetable garden or walking the ridge under the giant manor gums, the peacefulness of Breakneck Gorge will soothe your soul. The contemporary architecture, park like gardens and panoramic views provide the ultimate retreat in the perfect place.


Breakneck Gorge is a sophisticated retreat for couples. It has soaring ceilings with "warehouse style" open plan living, dining and a mezzanine floor sleeping space. There is a purpose built private spa room featuring a bifold opening glass wall and a double European hydrotherapy massage bath as well as a separate bathroom with shower, toilet and an additional indoor single spa bath with scenic views.

Regardless of the weather your comfort is guaranteed with a split system heating and cooling unit as well as a glass fronted European combustion wood fire in the living area.

As you may never want to leave the property you can either cook inside using the fully equipped kitchen or outside on the gas BBQ.

For your entertainment there is a TV, DVD and CD player with a selection of music and DVD's as well as cards, games and magazines.

The retreat experience includes a gourmet platter to welcome you and a rejuvenating package of local soaps and bath products for your time in the spa. Also provided are breakfast provisions for the first morning including freshly laid eggs from the chook shed. Fresh linen and soft towels go without saying.

The real thing is better than the pictures! Come and see.
