Full accommodation information

Characterised by funky art installations and bold design features, this is a jaw-dropping hideaway, just 45 miles from Melbourne. Throughout the hotel, you will come across intriguing works of art, some of which are globally renowned interactive experiences. Beginning with the large Jackalope sculpture outside the property, here you will be greeted by the work of some of Australia’s leading artists and designers.

A luxe colour palette of black and gold runs through the property, extending to the black infinity pool which is teamed with matching sunbeds and parasols, perfectly juxtaposed against the verdant colours of the vineyard that it overlooks. During summer, indulge in refreshing cocktails and light bites from Geode Pool Bar here, perhaps while sunning yourself under the brilliant blue sky of Victoria. The hotel’s spa is also located in this area and in keeping with what the region is known for, you can even choose a body scrub made from the skins of pinot grapes! Alternatively, why not opt for a rosewater soak in the privacy of your own room, accompanied, of course, by a glass of bubbly?

Uncomplicated modern design allows these spaces to really breathe. Neutral tones throughout with large windows opening onto a terrace and well-equipped bathrooms featuring double vanities, a rain shower and optional Japanese-style tub are standard. Breakfast, the minibar (excluding wine) and Wi-Fi are all complimentary. Each room also boasts a flat-screen TV, BOSE speakers and Samsung tablet, while Jackalope’s custom-made Hunter LAB toiletries are thoughtful additions.



Looking out to the hotel’s driveway, this entry level room covers 38sq m and is paired with a 12sq m terrace with table and chairs. The room is furnished with a comfortable seating area and king-size bed.


At 38sq m, while the Vineyard occupies the same size space as the Terrace, as the name might suggest, this room benefits from vineyard vistas. The 6sq m balcony comes furnished and gives you optimum views, any time of the day.


The Lair is of generous proportions with a spacious 85sq m internally and a further 30sq m in the form of a furnished balcony opening out to Willow Creek vineyard. Daily Champagne and caviar, a contemporary fireplace, a kitchenette and bar all add to the long list of amenities that this luxurious room bestows upon its guests.

Jackalope has everything you will need for your much-deserved getaway including spa treatments and an infinity pool complete with vineyard views and sunbed service. Parking, laundry service, dry cleaning and room service are also available.

Doot Doot Doot

Doot Doot Doot

A slick monochrome colour scheme illuminated by a show-stopping chandelier sets the scene at Doot Doot Doot. Using fresh produce from Jackalope’s kitchen garden and sourcing ingredients regionally wherever possible, Doot Doot Doot offers a five-course tasting menu, private dining and, of course, an extensive wine list.

Rare Hare

Rare Hare

With a laid-back vibe, complemented by large windows looking out to the surrounding countryside and a unique wood-fired oven that takes centre stage, Rare Hare serves a delectable selection of reimagined dishes with a touch of creative flair.



Located in a 19th century homestead, Flaggerdoot evocatively blends Jackalope’s rich heritage with its signature style, with statement pieces of furniture resting on classic herringbone flooring and thought-provoking pieces of art placed throughout. With a sensational cocktail menu and a wide range of spirits also available, Flaggerdoot will astonish at every turn.

With countless wineries on your doorstep, it could not be easier to spend a day exploring the locally grown grape, including the vineyard on Jackalope’s premises. Jackalope is also ideally placed for access to the beautiful bays of the Mornington Peninsula. A short 15-minute drive will take you to Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Garden, while towards the coast, Coolart Wetlands and Homestead makes for an interesting afternoon out.

Set amid vine-laced hills, gourmands can sample glorious tasting menus serving farm-to-table cuisine. Doot Doot Doot is one of Jackalope's two hatted-restaurants and offers innovative menus sourced largely from the peninsula’s farms and waters, such as the Hapukum fish with sea urchin sauce. The restaurant is unique and very stylish, with all-black surroundings lit by Ten Thousand Light Bulbs – an art installation that references wine-making's fermentation bubbles.

Gourmet-lovers can also experience the best of the Peninsula's winemaking scene during a private tour. You’ll meet winemakers, taste wine from the barrel, view private cellars and exclusive art collections, stroll around vineyards, bliss out with a beachside picnic, and collect fresh mussels from a fishing boat.
