emerald / dandenong ranges
Nestled amongst the rolling hills and quiet farms of Emerald, Victoria sits the beautiful straw-bale yurt of Alkira Eco-Glamping Retreat.
This charming accommodation is thoughtfully styled and equipped with everything you need for a peaceful getaway. Take a stroll around the farm to meet the cows, horses, alpacas and local ducks or explore some of the pristine natural surrounds on the 40-acre property with its eucalyptus bushland and luscious mossy stream-side. You’ll have ample choices for vessels to drink your cup of tea, coffee or maybe even a mulled wine in winter with the range of beautiful mugs in the rustic outdoor kitchen which is fully equipped for you to come and escape and fend for yourself.
