About Carmel Hill
Hi, I’m Carmel and I love having guests stay at Ferny Hill Retreat. Sharing the beauty of Emerald and the Dandenong Ranges with others is a genuine pleasure. Born and raised in Melbourne, I caught the travel bug after completing university and have done a fair bit of globe-trotting since. These days I'm into all sorts of things: gardening, reading, meditation, interior design, nature, writing, country drives, travel, art galleries, social media, movies, geeky stuff, dining out, friends, family and making a mess in my art studio. So that's a snapshot of yours truly. It would be lovely to have you stay at Ferny Hill Retreat. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

Why Carmel Hill chose Dandenongs
Not long after my tree-change to beautiful Emerald, I said to myself, “I’d love to share my quiet corner of nature with others.“ At the time I didn’t realise this small wish would become the inspiration for a self-contained, holiday apartment in Emerald that everybody could enjoy. Today, Ferny Hill Retreat offers guests a private, self-contained getaway – with special touches of whimsy and magic – right in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges.
