Victoria’s Murray River region has welcomed new 4.5 star hotel and apartment accommodation with The Sebel Yarrawonga officially opening its doors this month.
Set in the picturesque Murray River region adjacent to Silverwoods Golf and Lifestyle Resort, the multi-million dollar development will set a new benchmark in accommodation, dining, conference and events facilities for the region.
A three hour drive from Melbourne and five hours from Sydney, The Sebel Yarrawonga, offers 63 stylishly studios rooms and apartments overlooking picturesque Lake Mulwala on the Murray River. A further 54 rooms are expected in stage two of the development later in 2022/2023. The property will initially open two of its three food and beverage venues – Stock & Barrel bar and casual dining and Sunset Pool Bar – with Elizabeth’s fine dining restaurant and functions set to open in December.
The SOL Health & Wellness Day Spa is expected to open early January, offering signature treatments and products for those seeking a pampering getaway.
Lake Mulwala is a popular destination for water skiing in the summer months and the surrounding region offers an abundance of natural produce and a variety of wineries in nearby Rutherglen. The drive from Melbourne encompasses the unique silo art on the North East Art Trail.
To make the drive from Melbourne or Sydney even more enjoyable, ‘The Sebel Yarrawonga Drive’ playlist has been created with a collection of favourite driving themed songs. From classics like ‘Drive’ by the Cars and ‘Drive my Car’ by The Beatles, there is also a nod to Melburnians ready to escape from lockdown with songs like ‘Freedom!’ by George Michael and ‘I Want to Break Free’ by Queen. Some Australian favourites have also been included that celebrate our wide open spaces such as ‘Great Southern Land’ by Icehouse and ‘Sounds of Then’ by GANGajang.
Access the 4hr 40mins+ playlist on Spotify here.
Accor is also planning to expand the Sebel brand in Victoria and in New Zealand, with the addition of The Sebel Melbourne Ringwood and The Sebel Wellington Lower Hutt, flagged to open in February and June 2021 respectively.
Accommodation rates at The Sebel Yarrawonga start from $199 per night in a Studio Garden View room. More at www.thesebelyarrawonga.com.au
