Cornerstone's main features are the birds and the privacy. After leaving the beaten track and taking some unmade roads you will travel up a 500m drive through dense ti-tree. There you will be surprised to find a comfortable house.

Use a satellite view to see the bush island around Cornerstone and how it connects to the Prom. Our goal is to preserve this Winkarlin bush island in perpetuity and by staying at Cornerstone you are helping us make this vision financially viable!

The space
Cornerstone is a comfortable house for a holiday with family or friends. It has two queen bedrooms, one with ensuite, and third bedroom with two singles.

As well as the ensuite bathroom there is also a central bathroom with shower and toilet.

If you hear the patter of feet on the roof in the night please do not be alarmed they are probably only possums and other native creatures.

Where you’ll be

Yanakie, Victoria, Australia

Over 100 different bird species have been identified in and around Cornerstone. For example, there are flocks of Blue-winged parrots breeding there. We are always hoping to spot one with an orange belly! You might see wallabies on the driveway and we regularly see wombats, blue-tongues and echidnas. Corner Inlet is a marine park and the bird life on the beach is stunning!

On clear, moonless nights you will have perfect conditions for stargazing. You will see stars and galaxies that are never visible from city or town areas.

Don't merely treat Cornerstone as a place to sleep when you visit the Prom. Make sure you have time to explore the local bush, you might see koalas, wombats, echidnas, wallabies, blue-tongued lizards, snakes and many more native animals.
Winkarlin beach is a well kept secret. Even the Yanakie locals do not know about it so do not be surprised if you walk for miles along the beach and never see another person!

At some times of year there are snakes about but so long as you watch your feet in the bush and do not approach them they will quickly leave. You may also find that mosquitoes and sandflies can be a nuisance so I suggest you bring a suitable bug spray to discourage them. They tend to be worse in the hot weather, on calm days, especially in the evenings.
