2 Bedroom Elevated Single Storey Cottage nestled amongst a treed reserve, resting on Lake Eildon Shoreline.

Bundera (Indigenous for House Amongst The Hills) is approximately 15 minutes drive from the amazing township of Mansfield. Mansfield is the gateway to the alpine Ski Resort Mt Buller, surrounding High Country and local wineries. There are loads of gourmet cafes/Eateries, supermarkets, service stations, 3 Pubs/hotels, Hospital, and much more.

Gough's Bay is a short drive out of Mansfield along the Mansfield Jamieson road. The suburb is quaint, and predominantly consists of weekend getaway houses, with a few permanent residents amongst them. There is a boat club, general store, multiple boat ramps, caravan park, walking tracks and picnic areas. Nearby, there is Mansfield Zoo, a Maze garden, and tennis courts for hire.

Bundera is ~200 meters to Eildon Shoreline. It sits above and adjacent to a council nature reserve, and has glimpses of lake views. There is a large outdoor deck area that can be cautioned off, making the home fit for children and animals.

Bedroom 1: Consists of a Queen size bed, built in robe and lovely timber lined walls and ceiling.

Bedroom 2: Consists of a Tri-Bunk bed, with single at the top and queen bed at bottom. There is a small built in robe in this lovely timber lined room.

There is a combined laundry/bathroom set up with a deep shower/small bath base and toilet.

The lounge/living quarters is also lined with timber and consists of cathedral ceilings giving the home a warm feel. There is a queen futon couch/sofa bed that may sleep another 2 adults. The lounge consists of a combustion wood fire, authentic decorative hardwood furniture and TV/surround sound.

The hardwood kitchen gives the home character, and the hardwood table seats 6 and is extendable. There are 2 bar stools for additional seating. There is a period oven, microwave, slow cooker, toaster, kettle and small fridge. A decent built in pantry and linen cupboard suit ones storage needs. There is a large fridge/freezer in the garage for meat and alcohol.

Firewood is supplied for the combustion fire. Doona's, pillows, and blankets will be supplied. Tenants will need to bring their own sheets, towels and food!

Keep your eye on this property, as a new outdoor decking and 6 person Jacuzzi Hot Tub are coming!!

High Country Attractions

The high country is an adventurists playground. In summer, Lake Eildon is used for wake boarding, canoeing, fishing, and boating leisure. There are numerous surrounding walking tracks.

Mt Buller is around 40 minutes away and a key attraction for winter sports, with snowboarding, skiing, and playing in the snow. Throughout the year, there also TARGA races, field days and moonlight cinemas.

Late in the year there is the Merrijiig Rodeo which features some of the world's best Rodeo riders.

For the enthusiasts and a small drive, nearby Mt Sterling, and the famous Craig's Hut from Man from Snowy River can be a great attraction. For those into 4 wheel driving or trail bike riding, there is nearby Sheepyard flats and Howquar. 4 wheel drive tours and horse riding tours can be booked through mansfield information centre.

For those wanting to bike ride, a new bike track extending from Mansfield to Yea exists along the old railway line. A great way to get some exercise in whilst experiencing the beautiful surrounding scenery.


There is so much on offer at this wonderful location. Foodies will enjoy the farmers markets, fresh local produce, wineries and gourmet eateries.

Mansfield has a great Golf course.

Mansfield has a Zoo with a huge diversity from the animal kingdom. I believe there is feeding, and overnight camping/stargazing amongst the animals.

More information on Attractions on local activities can be sourced through Mansfield Information Centre.

Despite the wonderful attractions, Bundera is the perfect place to relax amongst nature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relaxing place to be Just letting you know that we all had a great relaxing time. The wood heater works wonderfully and keeps the house lovely and warm. The setting is great and we enjoyed the bird life. I hope we get a chance to come back. The owner is so easy to deal with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great location We stayed at very short notice over a recent long weekend. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and handled our last minute booking very quickly and efficiently. The property is in a good location close to the lake. There is a great deck in amongst the tree tops with very nice views. Inside the property is clean and tidy with all the essentials provided and it is certainly a good deal at the current rental rate. It was a definite bonus that there was no problem taking our dog along with us. Gough’s bay is pleasant and quiet township with good lake access and nice walks. The local swimming hole in the Delatite River was good fun in the warm weather. The new local restaurant was excellent. We had a really good time at Bundera!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with our stay at Bundera Bundera is clean and comfortable and the whole booking process was very easy. The property is located up high amongst trees and each day we ere lucky enough to be visited some of the local bird life including adult kookaburra and their offspring. The property is a very short walk down to the water and the local shop/petrol station is also very close by. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bundera.
