"Ellura is an Aboriginal name for paradise. For us, it means a paradise in tune with nature that we share with all our guests. We invite you to take the road less travelled... follow the signs from Apollo Bay, and come home to the forest... As you enter Ellura, you drive through a fragrant eucalyptus forest. Just a few kilometers from the Great Ocean Road, it's a paradise for those who desire a few moments in the silence of nature."


'' Enjoy watching and feeding king parrots, rosella's, galah's, cockatoo's, kookaburra's and many other birds on your own veranda....."
