We have just returned from a blissful 5 night stay at the Pioneer Cottages over the Easter break. We had a wonderful time staying in the Stone Cottage, and there was ample room for my husband and I, our two young sons and grandparents. The property is just amazing! Sixty hectares teeming with native wildlife and the Grampians Zoo next... More

We stayed here at the Red Brick cottage over the Easter break for four nights (April 2015) with our children aged 5, 3, and 11 months, and the grandparents. It was our second stay here. We all enjoyed an absolutely amazing holiday, from the youngest to the oldest. There was more than enough room for the seven of us to... More

We stayed in the stone cottage for 2 nights in late December and had a fantastic time. The peace and quiet was sublime, and the setting was a great way to finish our holiday. The cottage was very well equipped, with all the things you would want in the kitchen, and enough space in between the cottages to have a... More

Aside from that, around 6-7pm, there were many kangaroos roaming around. also with our binoculars we views the animals at the zoo. I say giraffe from far . It's on... More

My husband and I stayed here one night in October 2014. There was a bit of a computer glitch with our booking but Robert sorted it out and we were made very welcome anyway. We stayed in the red brick cottage which was the first of 4 cottages hand built by the owner of the property, out of predominantly recycled... More

Spent my birthday evening here , we planned this trip at the last moment and booked a cottage for one night , the cottage was beautiful and comfortable, loved the fireplace , and specially loved the location of the cottage. Wished we had more time to spend here. We will be back again soon. :)

We recently stayed in the "Stone Cottage" during the July school holiday. These cottages are located in a serene location with beautiful views and wildlife all around. We were lucky enough to meet and talk with owner/builder Robert Webb and learned that he built all these cottages by hand using recycled materials from around Australia and New Zealand. They are...

We have stayed here multiple times with our kids, ages 3 1/2 and 11 months. It is very child-friendly. We stayed in the Redgum Log Cottage. It is clean. My 3 1/2 year old loved sleeping in the bunk beds, playing in the sand pit, looking at the kangaroos, going on a hike and hearing the animals from the exotic... More
