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... More

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... More

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... More
