About the neighbourhood
'The Shack' is 15 minutes walk from the Woodend village centre, 50 minutes from Melbourne CBD and 5-10 minutes from Hanging Rock and Mt Macedon.

The Woodend Winter Arts Festival, held on the Queen's Birthday Weekend in June, is an event where artisans from around Australia gather to perform. The area also supports a large horse-racing community.

Enjoy the area, stay in a cosy shack and I hope to welcome you in the near fu...
