New to our area are helicopter flights #Promhelis. They take off about 5 minutes drive from your cabin. It would be an impressive way to arrive at our wonderful local winery #WaratahHills! You could treat your partner to a trip to remember while staying with us. Details at http://www.promhelis.com.au/
A big thank you to everyone who stayed with us in 2016.You have helped support our 3 acres of protected old growth forest and the planting of lots of feeder trees and bushes. We hope you have a wonderful 2017.

We planted Blue Gum trees as a food source for koalas.
As guests wander around Coastal View Cabins you may notice a fun fact about these trees (as seen in our pic) the juvenile leaves are almost round and covered with a blue-grey, waxy bloom, which is the origin of the common name "blue gum". While the mature leaves are really very different and are long narrow, sickle-shaped and dark shining green!
When we planted the trees they were tube stock and smaller than your finger. Now a few are 7 meters high and for the first time producing these mature leaves.
In the 5 years that we, Craig and Mark, have hosted Coastal View Cabins we have planted over 200 regional trees and bushes designed to protect, attract and feed Gippsland's native fauna. Thank you to all our guests who by staying here have contributed to these projects.
