Bunyip Springs Cottage

Bunyip Springs Cottage is a self-contained three bedroom cottage with a fully equipped kitchen. The Cottage is a restored 1926 farm dwelling. It has a tranquil outlook over farm paddocks and is situated close to the farm activities. Children just love the cottage as they can be close to all the farm pets.

Verandas offer an outdoor living area overlooking a natural fireplace in granite boulders. Modern conveniences include gas stove/oven, microwave, television/DVD, separate bathroom and two queen size bedrooms.

Comforts to be enjoyed are an efficient wood heater in the lounge room and a wood stove in the kitchen.

Bunyip Springs Lodge is a self-contained three bedroom house, with a fully equipped kitchen, large kitchen and living areas, plus a large gas barbecue. Winters are cosy around the wood fired heater.

The Lodge caters well for larger groups or even two families who want a farm experience. It overlooks bushland plateaus and is set 300 metres uphill from the farm establishment, therefore close enough to enjoy farm activities but wonderfully peaceful and private. Rates listed also include linen and farmstay activities morning and afternoon.
