Mongolian yurts perched high overlooking Myrrhee Valley.

An idyllic and unforgettable experience on the Jarrott's farm

Camp facilities, outdoor dining area & fire pit, and outdoor bathroom

The Yurt Alpine Retreat is the vision of owners Sharon and John Jarrott to create a truly unique experience for their local and international guests. Situated on their 345-hectare farm in Myrrhee, King Valley, their journey in creating this unique accommodation began with a chance suggestion from a friend who had recently visited Mongolia. Intrigued, Sharon delved into researching further and soon fell in love with the idea of having yurts on their property.
For the past decade, Sharon and John have embraced this vision, sharing their breathtaking views and warm hospitality with guests from near and far. Their passion in providing a comfortable experience is evident from the freshly chopped wood, hammocks and amenities carefully considered for their guests. Sharon and John's hard work, dedication and joy in providing their guests with an unforgettable experience shines through.

  • Exceptional experience in every way. Flushing toilet, hot shower with a view, amazing outdoor bath. Yurt was cosy and warm in the cooler weather we had. Great fireplace to sit around outside while gazing up at the clearest view of the Milky Way. Magical. Glamping at its finest. Can’t wait to return. Thank you Sharon & John x

    An absolutely amazing place to stay. We only stayed for one night, but I wish it was longer because we had such a great time. The views are spectacular, the yurt and facilities are clean and the owners are lovely. There has clearly been a lot of love put into making the Yurt Alpine Retreat as unique and comfortable as it is. We will definitely be back.

    What a magical place looking out to the mountains and King Valley from the shower window and outside bath. Romantic, relaxing get away. Just perfect, quirky and well worth the stay.

  • An amazing overnight stay at the Yurt in November 2020. Beautiful surroundings and a great place to get away from it all and just be. Limited mobile phone coverage so the perfect place to escape and get back in touch with nature


    went there a year ago, just found this again to book and thought I would review it from our last experience, this is absolutely the most unique and magical experience ever! The hosts could not possibly any nicer which made the experience fantastic! my only regret is I havent been more often. ;)

    This place is amazing! Rustic yurt accommodation with a million dollar view this place is a must stay if you want to relax and disconnect for a while. We stayed as a family of 2 adults and 3 young children. The kids loved the yurt and we the tranquility, which admittedly we shattered on occasion, but it's amazing!!!

  • Words can't describe the beauty of this place. There is so much love and attention to detail given to every aspect. The owners are lovely and helpful. The view is breathtaking, facilities are clean. We had so much fun cooking up a storm in the outside fire. Visit once and you won't be disappointed. I am already thinking of going again.

  • Really enjoyed staying here, Sharon was really lovely and helpful, the location is very peaceful with wonderful views. The amenities provided were more than sufficient, awesome experience having a bath outside under the stars and also having a flushing toilet at the ready was great too. The yurt is amazingly warm and cosy, and Sharon's Mongolian Adventure Booklet is a must read! Would come back here anytime.

    Very unique experience. My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and the location was truly breathtaking. Warm and comfortable, and as rustic as you'd expect from the description by the host. We both felt our yurt was a little messy. Took away from the experience a bit. Other than that, was a great experience

    The Yurt was amazing. I don’t think there are any photos of the shower but it was the highlight for me and my partner. The views are outrageously amazing. The yurt is warm and well insulated. The bed is super comfy. We went to Paradise Falls which was spectacular. The photos of this online do not do it justice. Whitfield was gorgeous as well. Stopped at Hobbledehoy Cafe and Distillery and the coffee was really great. They had some great local alcohols and foods. Stopped at Pizzini on the way back and such a stunning place. I will say that it is very windy there which made it challenging to cook and use fire but other than the uncontrollable natural elements it was a very special place. Sheep and goats also come right up to the yurt. I wish we had a few more days there to do more wineries and to check out Chestnut and do more hikes, walks and look outs. There is no shortage of activities in surrounding areas.

  • Read the fabulous reviews on airbnb! I can honestly say it was such a magical 2 nights and the most breathtaking views! The shower every morning with kookaburras was the highlight. Going back for a girls weekend and then taking hubby back in May. Thanks Sharon!

    We had a most peaceful and restful few days at your wonderful yurt with every detail and need catered for. We were impressed by the private surrounds and the decorative features of this type of accommodation. The bed was superbly comfortable. The hot water was plentiful and the shower powered by fire worked a treat. Thankyou again.

    Second time here, it's so good to live in the yurt, shower with the view and eat at the table with the mountains in the background. Not to mention the hammock.
