“We established Payne’s Hut as a tribute to Australia, the local area and to the essence of care. We are continually developing the property, our unique menus, and providing accommodation at a professional, thoughtful standard that we’ve enjoyed around the world.”

Tess and Graham Payne



Payne’s Hut is an award winning stay in North East Victoria, Australia. Founded by Tess and Graham Payne who have careers in hospitality, tourism, marketing, theatre and dance.

Payne’s Hut retreat accommodation in Victoria was established to honour the local area and designed for gardeners, writers, artists, cyclists, motorcyclists, fly fisherman, adventurers, couples, families and explorers. It is well-located Accommodation in the region of Glen Valley, near Glen Wills, Falls Creek, Mt Beauty, Falls Creek, Mitta Mitta, Angler’s Rest, Omeo, and Mt Hotham, with easy access to nearby rivers, walking trails, bike riding and more.

Our rooms are fitted with luxurious beds complete with woollen underlays, warm down quilts and white linen sheets. The buildings are designed with natural wood backdrops and the four-poster beds and the buildings are handmade by Graham (with a lot of help from friends).

We have a strong commitment to our environment and we are continually finding ways to reduce our carbon foot print, which can be seen in every aspect of the property. Payne’s Hut is ‘off the grid’, generator-run, and soon to be powered by the local stream.

Meals are in part from the garden and inspired by cuisines around the world.

Please enjoy all Payne’s Hut has to offer.



From humble beginnings Payne’s Hut is now promoted by previous guests from 30 countries and has been featured in top publications worldwide including  The Guardian, The Virgin Australia Magazine, Jetstar Magazine, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and The Weekly Times.

Relax, you’re almost here.
