Akora at Breakneck Gorge is a stylish destination for lovers of nature, architecture and romance.
This 18-hectare retreat at Elevated Plains is the first rural property on the edge of Hepburn Springs and Daylesford, and just minutes from the main street.
Spending time at Breakneck Gorge will leave you feeling on top of the world. From sunrise to sunset, stunning vistas beneath the ever-changing sky unfold in every direction. This unparalleled 360-degree spectacle is mesmerising.
There really is no better designer than nature!
Akora, whose name is derived from an Aboriginal word for dwelling, is a minimal and understated private retreat. This room with a view reflects the very best of contemporary country design fused with inner-city warehouse chic for a look and feel that is laid back and luxurious.
The simple form of Akora surprises with its moody, bunker grey, wood-panelled interior encouraging relaxation and intimacy. Complemented with a three-sided gas log fire, dramatic vaulted ceiling, mezzanine-floor sleeping space and circular staircase – there’s plenty to entice you to unwind in this comfy space.
Rejuvenate from whiling away time in the cedar battened indoor/outdoor spa-room where you can soak in the double spa and relax on the private deck & sun lounges.
Akora is one of two luxury accommodations at Breakneck Gorge and sits harmoniously in an architectural garden that has become a haven for mobs of kangaroos that laze and graze in easy view.
Every constructed and natural element at this gorgeous retreat combines seamlessly to create a special place that leaves an indelible impression. Time spent at Akora is a cosy, soothing and revitalising experience.
Upon arrival the owner will briefly meet you at the door to ensure everything is perfect for your stay.
