The Best of Australia: Payne’s Hut

Payne’s Hut is a specially designed sanctuary for you to relax and leave your cares behind, situated in the upper reaches of the Mitta in an area known as Shannonvale or Glen Valley. It’s north of Omeo, past the Blue Duck as you head north or ‘over the other side’ of Falls Creek and Mount Hotham for snow lovers or south east of Albury-Wodonga!

Four accommodation areas are available, all with crisp linens and delightful features. There is The Hut as you first enter the property, then onto the Barn which has an East and West Wing on either side of our large dining room, and further down the path and up above the Greenhouse is the Loft, overlooking the paddocks and hills beyond.

Meals are available on request (we recommend that we cook for you on the night you arrive after your journey) and a fully equipped outdoor kitchen should you wish to cook for yourself. Payne’s Hut is BYO and we provide local wines for sale.

A Payne’s Hut breakfast is included with three cereals, two breads (often home made by Graham), Tess’s jams and spreads, and something special such as preserved fruits, yoghurt or even berries from the berry patch when they’re in season.  Tess and Graham Payne have selected their favourite flavour, beans and supplier of coffee, Beraldo Coffee, which is freshly ground each morning. A wide selection of teas are available.

At Payne’s Hut you can bring your food and cook in the outdoor kitchen or partake in scrumptious food cooked for you that rivals the city’s.

When you book your Payne’s Hut stay, extra delights are available at reasonable prices and on order: cooked breakfast, lunches, picnics, afternoon or morning tea and evening meals ($35 per head for two course meal). We always suggest having us cook for you on the first night as a welcome relax after your drive.

Hosts, Tess and Graham Payne serve 5-star fare to rival the cities. An Australian BBQ with your steak cooked to perfection, a Moroccan tajin, a vegetarian quinoa delight.. all in beautiful surrounds, creating a memorable stay.

Morning and afternoon teas, lunches, and dinners can be prepared for you (please order when booking). Enjoy food – some grown on premises – all designed thoughtfully by hosts, Tess and Graham who have been cooking well for decades. They trained in breads and pastries in France, and Graham is a qualified chef who cooks steaks to the quality that impresses other 5 star chefs, and a combination of flavours that surprises and has you warmly fed.

Should you wish to cook for yourself, Payne’s Hut’s fully equipped outdoor kitchen is ready and waiting for you. Surrounded by the garden, herbs and bottles of preserving fruits, you’ll impress all of your senses!

Your meals can be enjoyed in the privacy of the garden or in the superb outdoor dining areas. An outdoor fireplace encourages conversation and dining in the greenhouse is a memorable alfresco experience sitting amongst the herbs and vegetables. Should the weather require warming, inside the toasty dining area you’ll enjoy the best country elements.
