Monash Cottage is nestled at the foot of Red Rock Scenic Lookout on the grounds of Coragulac Homestead of 140 acres of pristine farming land.
The cottage was built by Monash University in the 1950's for the Zoological Scientists whilst out in the field, whilst unused for over two decades the cottage has been completely refurbished offering all of today's comforts you would expect, whilst retaining the original character of the property.
Today Monash Cottage is an ideal holiday home for those who wish to get away from it all and soak up the beautiful landscape and peaceful countryside.
