Accommodation & Facilities

The castle offers two fully self-contained suites. Each suites has a private external entrance on the ground floor and consists of two bedrooms, lounge, kitchen & private bathroom, while the main bedroom is a loft.

The loft bedroom sleeps two, the lower bedroom sleeps four (a double tri-bunk and one single bed), plus there is a queen-sized sofa bed in the lounge on the middle level.

Each suite can potentially sleep eight guests. Please note, that there are two sets of 14 steps between each level. The suites are are gas heated for optimum guest comfort on chilly Alpine nights and all beds are fitted with electric blankets. Quality linen is included. Suites have ceiling fans for extra comfort during warm evenings. Foxtel television is also available in each suite.

Port-a-cot, baby bath and high chair are also available, if required.

Relax at Running Creek

Guests at Running Creek Castle cannot help but relax! We offer guests their own self-contained suite and from every direction superb mountainous views which can be admired from the balcony while enjoying a glass of wine, from the turret or any of the comfortable outdoor areas.

The kitchen has a gas cook-top (no oven), microwave and equipped with everything you need. Breakfast provisions are supplied in the suites, allowing guests to prepare breakfast at their leisure and the freedom to sleep in should they wish to do so.

For breakfast we provide bacon, eggs, bread, yoghurt, tomatoes & fruit in season, milk, juice, tea and coffee making facilities. Gluten free diets can be catered for with advanced notice.


Within the grounds there are beautiful gardens to explore and help you unwind. For the more energetic guests, we have a squash court, or you can simply cool off in our solar-heated swimming pool, which is a great place to relax. Please note, however, our pool will be closed during the cooler months and for scheduled maintenance at that time. Please contact us, if you wish to confirm its availability.

Off street parking is provided within the grounds. There is a strict non-smoking policy in the suites and on the deck.

Access to laundry facilities is available on request.


For the little ones, there is a play ground with swings, sandpit, cubby house and multistorey play facility and various types of 'games' equipment, which will keep them entertained for days. And for parental peace of mind, the children's outdoor play area is fenced and safe, from marauding triceratops, which incidentally, have not been seen in this area for a few million years. Please note, however, should you encounter a Jurassic beastie during a leisurely meander through our extensive grounds, there is no mobile coverage in Kancoona, so run as fast as you can.

Guest Areas

Each castle suite has direct access to our newly refurbished castle terrace & the turret, both of which take in superb views of the lake and surrounding ranges. There are BBQ facilities both on the pool deck which overlooks the large leafy rear garden and on the castle terrace. Enjoy languishing on the deck with a quiet glass of wine, or celebrating a special occasion with friends, while watching water birds glide onto the lake. Guests are encouraged to wander throughout the property and discover those special places that speak to them.
