From Melbourne CBD, head east on the M1 Freeway to reach us by one of two equally scenic routes - around 90mins.
Route 1: Take the M1 to Warragul then take 2nd exit (Korumburra - Warragul Road) and immediately turn right onto C425.

Follow the signs to Korumburra and continue for around 20 mins. About a kilometre after the South Gippsland Shire sign, (and about half a kilometre past Wild Dog Rd turn off to the left), there is a yellow 45k advisory speed sign right at the driveway, on your left, to  'Halcyon Cottage Retreat", 1730 Korumburra Warragul Rd.  (If you enter the hamlet of 'Strzelecki' you've gone too far)

Route 2: Take the M1 until you see the M420 turn off. Follow the M420 through Cranbourne to Tooradin. The Route turns into Route 180 for a short while past Lang Lang, then changes to A420 (Bass Highway). Look for off ramp to Route 440 (South Gippsland Highway) then head toward Korumburra and take a left on to the C425. Continue for a further 20 mins. You'll see Heritage Apples on your left and we're next entrance on the right.
