Due to the popularity of our other holiday rental property "The Ridge" we have renovated another house on our farm "The Grove".
The Grove is more spacious house with 3 bedrooms. With a larger living room and kitchen.
If you love peace, tranquillity and wildlife then this is the place for you. Abundant bird life and when walking along the banks of the Gunny Creek, you may spot a Wallaby or two..
The Gunbower Creek is a great spot for fishing and in summer it is a popular place for swimming and water skiing.
Murray cod, yellow belly and carp are often caught in the creek. Boats can be launched at the nearby boat ramp, which is just a two minute walk from the cottage. It is currently difficult to fish from the bank of the creek due to the large amount of water lilies growing in the shallow water. But we have installed a fishing jetty nearby to make it easier for visitors without a boat, to fish. The jetty is a 5 minute walk up stream from The Grove
Kayaks are available for tenants' use at no extra charge. Life jackets are supplied. Push bikes are also supplied.
We have good range of DVDs. Also a Wii console with a choice of 50 games available. Many hours of fun for kids. Let us know if you would like to have the Wii, so we can set it up before you arrive.
The Gunbower Creek is lowered from mid May till mid August. A shallow stream flows in the creek at this time of the year. Therefore the mud banks are exposed and it is difficult to get to the water to fish. Fishing is possible ten minutes from Gunbower in the Murray River. Please contact us if you require further information.
In Gunbower there is a Takeaway Shop that also sells all basic needs, McGillivrays' Butcher Shop and the Gunny Pub for excellent meals .
The Grove is situated on the Gunbower Creek at Gunbower, Victoria, 40 kilometres west of Echuca.
From Echuca travel towards Kerang along the Murray Valley Highway. Just before entering Gunbower, turn right into Fox Island Road, then right into Richards Road. House entrance is 1.8 km on right amongst the very large gum trees.
The Grove is situated on our cattle farm property of approximately 200 acres. We also have another holiday house on the farm (The Ridge is also listed on this website) which is about 300 metres further down Richards Road.

The cordiality and ever ready to help wass greatly appreciated. Anbother Toilet seat, perhaps in the Laundry where there is a Shower could be very helpful and useful if there's a full crowd. An improvement in Hot Water System is greatly appreciated.

We really enjoyed our stay, so quiet and peaceful and close to the river. Lots of nice small things like books and DVDs, the open fire, beautiful flowers from the farm and fresh fruit. We will definitely visit again.

We really liked having the boats and the fishing rods, and the open fire place was perfect for a warm and relaxing time indoors during the night time. We loved the fresh oranges and lemons from trees surrounding the Grove and the organic vegetables. We had a very relaxing time and we'd love to come again to see what the place is like in summer time.

This was our second stay, we've booked our 3rd already. Our kids dont want to go back to resorts and caravan parks, so glad we found it!

This was a true farm stay experience. The Grove was exactly what we were hoping for..peace, solitude, space...time just stood still!
We loved the bikes and canoes provided, as it enabled us to explore the quiet roads (which went forever!!)and the tranquil river, which was amazing. We also loved the roaring fires each night!
Exploring the nearby areas were also enjoyable, especially Kow Swamp, Echuca and the Backroad Trail from Moama. There was plenty to do...even a Wii for the kids to play with and Charles the turkey and 4 chickens completed the farm stay experience. We loved it all!!
