Bourke’s Reef cottage is a comfortable, self-contained cottage where native birds and kangaroos come to visit and you can watch the sun rise and set over the rolling hills of Victoria's central highlands. The cottage is situated within an hour's drive of Melbourne and provides a wood fire, underfloor heating in the bathroom and reverse-cycle air-conditioning that cools or heats the entire cottage quickly and quietly. The cottage décor is a mix of old and new world charm with art work and artefacts that evoke the gold rush era when the Bourke’s Reef goldmine was opened up. In the bedroom there is a queen-size bed with quality linen and, like the kitchen and living rooms, the bedroom enjoys panoramic views of the rural countryside. Laundry facilities, a modern kitchen and outdoor dining area together with a gas fired barbecue are also provided. The cottage is equipped with free wi-fi and HD television.
