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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect weekend retreat! Bourke's Reef cottage was the *perfect* spot for a quiet weekend getaway in the middle of winter. We went up for the Queen's Birthday long weekend, and felt completely content spending the entire time curled up by the fire enjoying the view across the open paddocks to the distant mountains. Note there's not much to do in the area...but we were fully aware of this and it suited us perfectly well to ensure a restful and restorative weekend. We recommend it if you're looking for a slow paced "do nothing" break. There is a mini mine-shaft on site which you can do a short 10 minute stroll around the entrances of amongst the trees. The scenery was pretty and apparently wombats were in residence at the time (though we didn't spot them). The animal life was fun to watch from the property - sheep and alpacas for company in the paddock outside the window and countless kangaroos could be spotted at dawn and dusk. Mary was a wonderful host, greeting us warmly, showing us the features of the cottage, which is even prettier than the pictures show, and checking in to make sure we had all we needed. The breakfast provisions were generous and tasty, and Jim even made his first ever loaf of bread for us! As hosts they allowed us privacy but were attentive and helpful whenever we asked for something. And the bed - oh my goodness - was SO comfortable, best sleep in a long time! Thank you Mary & Jim, hope to return one day!
