What a great place to stay. All needs catered for. Beautiful serene view, spotlessly clean unit. Firewood for open fire replaced early each morning. Owners very caring and helpful and full of suggestions of what to do in the area. Will definitely return in the future

Boroka Downs is accessed by a red-earth road, from the highway that leads from Halls Gap to Pomonal and eventually to Ararat. Drive carefully, once you get onto the dirt road – there are emus and kangaroos on the property in winter, and in fact, we saw them every day! It is not far to the property. We had a... More

This place is amazing! My husband and I stayed here for a little getaway from Adelaide for 5 nights. We loved it! The views are fantastic, great to wake up, roll up the blinds and see the sun rise over the majestic mountains. The spa bath was a real highlight. Sitting back relaxing in bubbles while watching the rain come... More

We last stayed at this property in 2006 and had an excellent time. We decided to plan a nostalgic trip back and we are glad we did. The property has come under a different management team but it is still wonderful. The property is stunning. Set in a huge piece of land with complete privacy and views of the hills... More

My husband and I stayed here in mid June for a little getaway from Melbourne. And it sure was luxurious! We woke up to amazing views of The Grampians region and kangaroos grazing just metres away. The spa was an added bonus, being able to soak while enjoying the views. The place was very clean, secluded and a fully equipped... More

We stayed two nights but could've happily stayed for twenty! Check in was efficient with a quick overview of our villa by Bob. The villa was comfortable sized, certainly far from cramped but small enough to stay cozy. Kitchen is well equipped including an electric bbq in the veranda and a proper Saeco coffee machine inside. Beds are very comfortable... More

Wow, what an absolute peach of a property this place is. Beautiful, well-appointed luxury secluded cabins which act as a great base for exploring the Grampians -- but don't be surprised if you decide to spend just a little more time hanging out on the terrace watching kangaroos, wallabies, echidna, etc..., and generally taking advantage of the peace and serenity...

We spent another lovely weekend at Boroka Downs recently. Our unit was extremely well appointed, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It is all the little extras, including the friendly and helpful staff, that made our stay so special. The views are amazing and we loved sharing the space with the wallabies and wrens. We look forward to a return visit... More

This was our second visit to Boroka Downs. The first visit was too short so this time we stayed three nights and really relaxed in this tranquil setting. The rooms are amazing and the owners have fully equiped these spotless units with everything you could wish for. Yoga mat, backpack & maps for the walking trails to name a few.... More
