We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay here, the villa is set in the most tranquil and breathtaking surroundings with emus and kangaroos right on your doorstop. It's a once in a lifetime experience. The villa is well equipped with cooking facilities, even the basics such as olive oil, salt and pepper. It's a short drive to Halls Gap and...

If ever we return to visit the Grampians, there is no doubt we will stay at Blaze Rock Retreat. We stayed several nights in the end chalet which was very clean, comfortable and well appointed. The prolific wildlife was a joy to behold, and the serenity was therapeutic. We enjoyed breathing in the dusk and twilight each evening after our...

We were 2 couples travelling together and booked both chalets and both are equally as wonderful – spacious and comfortable. The booking process was seamless, and we received a text with instructions. The bed was comfortable and although the bath at the end of the bed looked enticing, we didn’t use it. The kitchen had everything we needed. You have...

Set on lots of open pasture, with native wildlife happily grazing, this cottage is perfect relaxation; just a few minutes from the wonderful Grampians and Halls Gap. The centre-piece bath is a hoot! Sipping a wine while viewing the emus, kangaroos and deer and the great Blaze Rock wall of the Grampians ... hard to beat. Thank you Leanne, for...

My partner and I had 2 great nights at Blaze Rock situated close to Halls Gap in the Grampiens, Victoria. The retreat is well set up with everything you might need to have a great break away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We saw at least a dozen kangaroos only metres from the front door and on...

We stayed here over the Easter weekend and it was everything and more that we had hoped for. It's a great base if you want peace and quiet and yet still close enough to all the walks that the Grampians have to offer. It was a real thrill to come back late afternoon to find we had a group of...

We spent a couple of nights at Blaze Rock Retreat and loved every minute. The apartment itself is secluded, with absolute privacy in a peaceful setting. We could watch across the cleared grassland in front, seeing the birds, kangaroos, emus, and other animals while appreciating the beauty of the Grampians as a backdrop. The garden of natives, many in bloom...
