Spoilt for choice with activities will be your only issue while staying at fabABODE at Millbrook.
Should you go to one of Australia's best surfing beaches (less than 2 mins away) for a great surf, or leisurely stroll and swim and brunch, or perhaps go out to one of the many fine local restaurants or wineries for lunch?
Into Dunsborough for a good coffee, and some shopping for the BBQ ingredients so that you ( or someone else!) can cook in that great kitchen and then enjoy sitting on the deck?
Or perhaps a walk is more your thing, through the beautiful property of Millbrook, which historically was the original site for timber milling in the area, in the 1870s.
Even if you just sit on the comfortable outdoor lounge and start reading the book you have been meaning to start all year, you won't feel like you are missing out on all the great surrounding activities- the peace and tranquility of Millbrook will leave you feeling rejuvenated after your stay, wanting to return again for some more!
