Chum Creek Hut 1 – Yarra Valley’s biggest and best fireplace.


The perfect rustic country escape where luxury meets nature.

The Chum Creek Hut is located in a beautiful Yarra Valley on a 136 acre working farm that backs onto the 83,000 Toolangi State Forest, amongst abundant wildlife.

The Chum Creek Hut has the Yarra Valley’s biggest and best fireplace and is located in the heart of the Yarra Valley just 10 mins drive from wineries and eateries and is only 1 hour from Melbourne CBD and Melbourne airport.

The Chum Creek Hut is a totally unique luxury country cottage. Chum Creek Hut 1 was a national finalist in Stayz ‘Most Romantic’ category.

The Chum Creek Hut has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 6 people. The main Bedroom 1 features a queen sized bed. Bedroom 2 has a cosy double bed. Bedroom 3 has a single bed with a trundle bed option.
