Golden Beach has just been named Victoria's best secluded beach by RACV's in a 2018 article. The Age newspaper just did a write up in 2018 on Paradise Beach ' A slice of Paradise: life at one of Victoria's least-known beaches' saying it was a 'secluded paradise. . . a vista of great beauty. An expanse of coastal splendor; of calm cobalt-blue waters, and miles of mostly uninhibited beach'.
This property is located in a perfect place where you will feel at peace and really be able to relax. It is quiet and leafy as it is ideally located with open land on one side and a 10 minute walk to the famous 90 Mile Beach on the other. You can look out the front window and you will see a green plain with bush land which is home to many Kangaroos, Kookaburras, and Rosellas and the odd bunny rabbit. We have also had Rosellas nesting on the property and October and November is the time you may see Joeys in mum’s pouch.
