Boroka Downs, Grampians National Park

Exclusively for couples – a romantic hotel set in Victoria’s beautiful Grampians National Park, offering tranquillity, fine dining, soft warm nights and a sky full of stars.

At Boroka Downs the wildlife and a peaceful life are both guaranteed. As a couple you’ll find plenty of moments to share; giving you a whole new collection of memories. Star gazing at a crystal clear night sky, for example, or wishing on a firmament of shooting stars, or lazing in a double hammock together.

So that’s the peaceful, relaxing side of Boroka Downs. But decide to stay here and your luxury, tailor-made vacation to Australia can also include the wildlife. At Boroka you’ll hardly be able to avoid coming face-to-face with kangaroos gazing at you inquisitively out of the bush. Wild emus will wander past your bedroom windows, willy wagtails or blue wrens will alight on your balcony looking for scraps, whilst overhead you’ll see eagles circling.
