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

The amazing villas of Boroka Downs in the foothills of the Grampians are a spectacular way to enjoy this remarkable region of Victoria. Bob and Stephanie catered for every detail and the accommodation is simply lovely. It's roomy, comfortable and relaxing -- with wildlife your guests for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day! 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.

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
