'Our House' is a Californian bungalow built at the turn of the 20th century and lovingly updated and modernised at the turn of the 21st century. Located in the Ballinasloe heritage precinct, it is one of a row of interwar bungalows and in a neighbourhood which includes a cute row of miners' cottages transported to Geelong from Ballarat.
Our House is easy to get to and is central to both local facilities and visitor attractions in southern and central Victoria. There is plenty of vehicle parking and public transport options are nearby. Our House hosts reside nearby and will be happy to assist you in whatever way possible. To help you further our neighbours are great and all have our contact details.
