“The Newest Grand Old Hotel in Australia”, The Settlement at Cranbourne is an exciting hospitality complex full of old world Victorian comfort and charm. Careful reproduction of Victorian architectural features has created an appealing diversity of food, beverage, accommodation and gaming facilities that combine to form “The Settlement”.
Our Terrace Motel is the perfect blend of the old-world Victorian style with today’s modern facilities. Located in Cranbourne, just 50km south-east of Melbourne on the way to the penguins at Phillip Island and the Cranbourne Botanical Gardens, the Terrace is part of our award winning hotel. The spacious accommodation, the quality of the fittings and furniture and the bars, cafe, family restaurant, and gaming lounge all combine to make The Terrace a desirable over-night stay, or a base for a few days to tour the surrounding area.
Visitors who view the huge expanse of water that is Cardinia Reservoir by the morning light will understand why this is one of Melbourne's most popular outdoor destinations. The open parklands, picnic and barbecue areas, and native bush areas that are home to abundant wildlife and natural flora are a draw card to those seeking a day in a natural setting.
All picnic areas have access and toilets for visitors with limited mobility. Most have barbecues and shelter. Popular spots include Crystal Brook, Duffy's and Kangaroo Flat.
Looking after the park
- Dogs are allowed at Crystal Brook and Duffy's but must be kept on a leash at all times.
- Portable gas barbecues are allowed, but portable barbecues using heat beads or wood are not permitted in the park.
