From the moment we arrived at Boroka Downs we fell in love with it. Bob kindly walked us through the Villa showing us all the features, inside and out. The fireplace was already set up and good to go, champagne in the fridge, all that was left was for us to put our feet up and enjoy. As we arrived... More

The moment you walk into the Boroka villa the serenity hits you. Bob takes time to proudly show you all the fixtures and amenities and warmly advises that the only time you will see him is if you dial 9.... The open fire only needs a match to get it crackling with Bob leaving new Fire starter pack ( Paper,... More

Baroka Downs is faultless. The attention to detail of the property and the facilities is beyond anything I've come across. Hosts Bob and Stephanie couldn't be more accommodating. And the serenity of the location is bliss! To sit aside and read and watch the kangaroos, emus and birds come almost within touching distance was wonderful. I would highly recommend Baroka... More

Situated 10 minutes from Halls Gap and... More

We stayed at Boroka Downs with the family and grandparents from overseas and thoroughly enjoyed it. The houses are very well appointed and whatever you might need during a stay in the Grampians is already there: maps, backpacks, binoculars, books about birds and wildflowers, .... Stephanie and Bob are great hosts and we will definitely be back, next time in... More

This was our second stay at Boroka Downs. We chose it as the place we would spend our honeymoon a couple of years back, and loved it so much we returned. Steph and Bob are fantastic, as are the residences. Truly top class accommodation and views; a truly breathtaking way to wake up when on holidays.

Wanting to visit the Grampians and being short of time we booked two nights at Boroka Downs and bought the Nature Escape. The package included breakfast provisions including eggs, bacon and everything else you need, eating home cooked breakfasts on the terrace with emus and kangaroos a few yards off was magical. The welcome from the owners Bob and Steph... More
