Set in the former logging town turned mountain biking mecca of Forrest in Victoria, Steam Carriage harks back to a Golden Age; when any kind of travel was a luxury, and an occasion. One that called for dressing smartly, and sipping martinis as the landscape passed you by. There are three bedrooms, a kitchen and bathroom within the space, though the double-compartment master really offers the first-class experience, with twin mahogany armchairs and a sliding door that opens to a private outdoor bath, surrounded by greenery. Pour yourself a glass of port from the crystal decanter, or relax in the double hammock keeping watch for the echidna who lives under the train. In the bathroom, Grampians Goods products lend a luxurious local touch. If you’re travelling with a larger group, neighbouring accommodation, Otways Loft, can be booked at the same time.
