My husband and I spent 5 nights at Boroka Downs, and we didn't feel like leaving. All the bungalows are well spaced out so you have complete privacy and lots of space to enjoy the landscape, the wild life and the changing weather. We had kangaroos and emus wandering outside our bungalow almost every day. The place is immaculately clean... More

We stayed for 4 nights, mid November 2014 - and enjoyed every single second! We stayed in the bungalow (which is for 2 couples but we were on our own) which has everything you could expect from boutique, self-catering accommodation - from the king sized bed with pillow menu, to the indoor wood burner and outdoor spa, the gorgeous kitchen...

It was simply great, it was our fourth stay with Steph and Bob, the place is looking great, obviously a lot a maintenance, as it looks better than when we first stayed back in 2001. I can't think of any more relaxing than lying on hammock, watching all the wildlife in a magnificence setting, the view for the dinning table,... More

We went in late September for a 3 day break from Melbourne. The drive up was relaxing with a number of points of interest on the way, such as the spot where the first gold was found in the Ararat district, or the memorial to the founder of AFL football in Moyston. We stopped a few times and enjoyed finding... More

We stayed with another couple in the 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom bungalow for 3 fantastic nights at this boutique 5 star retreat. It is located a few kilometres from Halls Gap in the Grampians on the road to Ararat. There are only 6 individual, luxurious & private residences. The property itself abuts the Grampians National Park and there are... More

Steph and Bob are fabulous hosts, they will go out of their way to help with any requests. The Accomodation is spacious, private, fully equipped and has spectacular views of the beautiful Grampians. This is definitely the best place to 'kick back' and relax and unwind from your usual 'rat race'. There's nothing like an open crackling fire and a... More

We went back to Boroka Downs for a second time, and it was wonderful yet again! Wildlife, scenery, the stars at night (with star-chart, flash-light and binoculars provided) and Bob and Steph's warm welcome made it another fantastic stay. Will likely return here again and again as it is such a relaxing and guaranteed great vacation!

I love this place Stephanie and Bob are the perfect hosts and they even arranged for us a ride to and from the restaurant (courtesy of their daughter) so we could have a drink. The accomodation is beautiful, we could have wished for more and trust me, we're not easliy pleased. Amazing place, amazing people.
