“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, in South-East Australia. Founded by Tess & Graham Payne who have careers in hospitality, tourism, marketing, theatre and dance.

Payne’s Hut is open year round and 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-posted beds and most of the buildings are handmade by Graham (with a lot of help from friends).

Payne’s Hut has a strong commitment to the environment and to continually finding ways to reduce the 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 in The Guardian, The Virgin Australia Magazine, Jetstar Magazine, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, and The Weekly Times.

Relax, you’re almost here.
