The cottage is situated on 8 acres of bush land with creek frontage.

If your preferred dates are not available make sure you look at our other holiday house "The Grove".

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. Paddock can also be used for motorbike riding for the kids.

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 five 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.

Row boat, canoe and kayak are available for tenants' use at no extra charge. Kids 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 provides all basic requirements, McGillivrays' Butcher Shop , and The Gunny Pub which provides excellent meals .


Cottage is comes with 8 acres by 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. Cottage entrance is 2.1 km on right.


The Ridge is situated on our cattle farm property of approximately 200 acres. We also have another holiday house on the farm (The Grove is also listed on this website) which is about 300 metres further up Richards Road.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Holiday house Nice friendly hosts, terrific birdlife, basic but everything you need. However you do need lots of warm clothes in the cooler months. One small wood heater dd not do a very good job. Would consider going back when it is warmer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable warm and quiet. We just wanted a quiet break from traveling to look at birds, rest up and walk our small dog. We couldn't have found a better place. The house was warm, clean and comfortable and had everything you need. The variety of water birds were truly amazing. It rained most of the time we were there but we still got out and about. The morning we left the sun was shining and it was magic. Don't expect urban style luxuries this is s simple rustic little cottage but it really had all we needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely quiet get away We enjoyed our 2nd stay at Gunbower. The kids love the kayaks, and we love the tranquility and the abundant bird life. The hosts are generous and helpful. The house is basic, particularly the bathroom, but comfortable.
