We welcome friends and family travelling in groups.


Whether you are trail or road cyclists, mountain bikers, a bush walking group, golfers or perhaps wine lovers... we know you'll enjoy spending time together at the Warburton Motel.

We know the value of your bikes, boots, clubs and other equipment and we are happy to help you secure them - at no cost. Wine cases may inadvertently have an owner tax applied ...but we'll try to resist.

We can also accommodate early bag drop offs at the Motel if they'll get in the way of you enjoying your day before you check in after 2pm. 

By prior arrangement, and at a reasonable cost, we can even meet you at Lilydale train station and pick up your luggage if you want to ride to the Motel (and/or return).

Train Station Luggage Collection

By arrangement on weekends (for a reasonable *fee) we will meet you at Lilydale Train Station and bring your luggage back to the Motel. You can run, walk or ride the 38km Rail Trail from the station and your bags will be in your room waiting.

* We charge $15.00 per person each way for the 73km, 1 hour round trip to the train station. Minimum 2 / $30.


Our 1.6 acre garden is magnificent and we love our guests enjoying it! Because it's so big we also have lots of garden timbers to dispose of. For that reason the fire is often lit at night and we welcome anybody to come and enjoy it. If you are travelling as a group it's a great place to congregate, debrief your day and plan your next adventure. If we dont have any wood at the time there are lots of places where you can buy bags of wood. Now there is no excuse not to enjoy a bottle of great Yarra Valley wine!
