Map & Directions

4887 Princes Highway, CODRINGTON, VIC, 3285



Codrington Gardens is located 320 kms from Melbourne CBD & about 290 from Melbourne Airport.

The directions are much the same from Melbourne CBD or the Airport; Head for Geelong & then;

The shorter route is taking the B140 Hamilton Hwy from the Geelong Bi-Pass through the Western Plains, keep on this road to Mortlake then following the sign to Warnambool on B120 to join the Princes Hwy. This route takes about 3.45 hours from CBD. This route has the least traffic.

You can also travel Princes Hwy all the way from Melbourne, going through Geelong & on through the Volcanic Hinterland and see more of our country Townships on the way. This route takes about 4.15 hours from CBD. This route has more traffic, especially in holiday periods, it also passes through more Townships.

Another scenic route is along the Great Ocean Road; but be aware, this is a much longer trip taking around 7 or 8 hours from Melbourne CBD (with the inevitable sight seeing stops) but some people believe it's worth the extra time & effort for the scenery. This route has far more traffic, and can be very busy in holiday periods. It passes through a lot of Townships and the road is very winding but rewards with some of Australia's most spectacular views.

There's an approach sign for our property 400 meters before the driveway and we are located on the coast side of the road.


Very straight forward, head for Portland either along the coast road or through Hamilton, from Portland we are 47 kilometers further on.

Pass through Codrington, there's no Township, just a region sign, and there's an approach sign for our property 400 meters before the driveway and we are located on the coast side of the road.
