I'm an extremely critical and observant character and I must say I couldn't fault this place. Bob has thought of everything! Boroka Downs is the perfect getaway to relax and see the grampians. Would also recommend going to McKenzie Falls whilst your visiting, stunning!

We booked this place on recommendation for our honeymoon and despite having looked at the pictures on the website, we were bowled over by the place. The standard is exceptional, with everything you could possibly want or need, and then other things that you didn't realise you might need! Star chart for the night sky, wildlife identification books and a...

This a fabulous place. The accommodation is contemporary with everything you need. Bob and Stephanie offer wine and gourmet supplies so you can create your own dinner in the superbly equipped kitchen. The huge panoramic window looks out over rolling down land yet offers complete privacy. Halls Gap is a short drive away if you want to eat out but...

The owners Stefanie and Bob have done an amazing job with this property and our stay was one of the most enjoyable and memorable experiences we have had during our extensive traveling experiences. The road to the reception house is filled with wildlife greeting you to the property. We immediately saw kangaroos, wallabies and a number of different birds. Bob...

Another visit, and we were just as impressed, everything about the place, is geared for relaxing, and chilling out, particularly with a glass of wine. the bed is very comfortable and has a great view, you can watch the birds and wildlife in the morning without getting up. And when you do you can cook up a great breakfast (...

Everything about Boroka Downs is wonderful, but the bed is extraordinarily generous, comfortable and huge. We also loved the generosity of spirit that prevails. You are treated like an adult, encouraged to cook, if you wish, using excellent provided ingredients, and light an open fire in the grate. There is a barbecue, washing mashing, tumble dryer, dishwasher and amazing coffee...
