What a fantastic stop over on the Melbourne to Adelaide route. Just on the Stawell side of Horsham and near the Giant Koala. A good locale to break the drive. There are so many quirky and inspired Australiana laughs to be had here. Clean and well appointed 'theme based' cabins make your stop over an easy care free one but...

I have to say that this is a unique, quirky and amazing place. Regrettably we were booked elsewhere for the coming night, otherwise we would have stayed on impulse. Max is a great character and what work has been put into the "town"! Rooms shown were of highest standard and full of character, as was the common area/bar. Max obviously...

Stayed overnight here, chose the cabins because we were travelling with small dog and the cabins are dog friendly. Nice little 2 bedroom cabins with air conditioning. Everything worked well and was reasonably well equipped for overnight stay, would take more cooking utensils etc if staying longer. Very clean with nice bedding and towels. Would recommend to anyone travelling with...

Cabin was clean and very comfortable, very quiet too. You need to byo food and drink with a microwave and cooktop in the cabin. Whilst it is only a small place, it is open for...

I spent an awesome weekend here, staying in one of the quirky cabins. I didn't even feel the urge to explore the nearby Grampians - there was so much to discover at the Old Dadswell Town itself. I particularly enjoyed the Town Hall, where we spent a fun and amicable evening with the hosts, Max and Jenny and other guests,...
