Destination and location

G alwiji Homestead is located in the picturesque country hamlet of Scotsburn, Victoria – 20 kms South East of Ballarat and 120 kms West of Melbourne.

The homestead is 8 minutes’ drive from the local township of Buninyong (with a good supermarket, restaurants and a range of other shops), 18 minutes to local tourist attraction Sovereign Hill, 50 minutes to Geelong and Avalon Airport, and 75 minutes to Melbourne Airport.

  • The owners live close by so it was especially thoughtful that they had a fire going for us (it was cold!) and had left lights on (given we arrived in the dark). The number of bedrooms (5) was great. The house was very suitable for a young family overall.

  • We had 4 adults and 10 13 year old girls staying in this house. We stayed for a week for a basketball tournament in Ballarat. Fantastic place for a large group.

  • It was great for all the family to be able to stay together. We enjoyed the quietness and space in our home away from home. We can’t think of anything that could have made the experience better for us.
