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.

This is the second time we have stayed in this luxury self catering environment at Boroka Downs. This time there were 4 of us, two couples, and we shared the cottage with 2 separate king size bedrooms, separate toilet/shower facilities, a modern kitchen with all supplies, a very comfortable lounge and panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, populated by kangaroos,...

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

Greeted as we arrived, and the experience was personalised. We purchased the indulgence package, well worth it! Beautiful room and well set out. The self contained room had everything we needed or could think of. Well done Bob and Steph (our hosts).

Superb private luxury with views of the Grampians and kangaroos and Emus close enough to see. These bungalows (that doesn't do them justice) are large and beautifully furnished and equipped, with floor to ceiling windows/doors along one wall the views are terrific. Once installed we had trouble tearing ourselves away from the retreat to go and enjoy the many local... More

The Boroka Downs cabins were flawless – Bob and Steph had thought of everything that would set us up for ultimate comfort. It was peaceful, private and romantic. The minor negatives were that we would have liked more support in booking activities in the area, the phone communication and support didn’t match the high standard of the property, and the... More

We are glad that you enjoyed the facilities at Boroka Downs but we are disappointed that there was an apparent lack of information and communication on our part as we pride ourselves on being available and informative. Our Booking Enquiry response letter and Booking Confirmation are both extensive documents laden with info and links relating to our Packages and the... More

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
