The property is located in the heart of the Wimmera, a broadacre farming area.
On the map, Jung is the closest ‘township’, being only 5 minutes way. In reality though Jung is now nothing more than a collection of houses and a town hall. Murtoa is located 10 minutes away, and is the closest town providing shops and services, including a grocery store, hotel, café, swimming pool and various other amenities (including fuel). Horsham, located 20 minutes away, is the major hub of Western Victoria, with all major amenities and shopping chains available, including fast food outlets, hotels, restaurants, big brand shopping outlets (Bunnings, Aldi, Target, etc).
If you would like to explore the area, then we have a myriad of attractions close by, which are ideal for day trips.
The property is at the southern edge of ‘The Silo Art Trail’ and is an ideal base to begin the journey. The trail stretches over 200 kilometres and provides an insight into the true spirit of the Wimmera Mallee region. The trail recognises and celebrates the region’s people through a series of large-scale mural portraits painted onto grain silos. Many of these silos date back to the 1930’s, but are no longer in use today. They have been given a new lease on life as part of Australia’s largest outdoor gallery.
‘The Stick Shed’ is only 10 minutes away, and located in the township of Murtoa. It is the only remaining emergency grain store built during World War 2 and is the 101st place included in the National Heritage List. Referred to by some as the ‘Cathedral of the Wimmera’, the Murtoa Stick Shed’s ghostly unmilled tall timber poles and central aisle draw the eye upward towards the roof as light spills into the space through skylights as if through stained glass windows.
For those that want to do the full ‘tourist’ thing, then the Grampians National Park is less than an hour away. Rising abruptly from the surrounding Western Plains, the Grampians (Gariwerd) is a series of rugged sandstone mountain ranges and forests rich in wildlife. The park is a great venue for scenic drives, bushwalks and nature study. It is also the home of the Halls Gap Zoo. A network of walking tracks throughout the park allows you to explore cascading waterfalls, brilliant spring wildflower displays, and panoramic views from lookouts. The area has a rich Aboriginal heritage and a number of important rock art sites.
If you are into mountain climbing, then Mount Arapilies is only 40 minutes away. Mt Arapiles is widely regarded as a top rock climbing area in Australia and is world renowned. More than 2000 routes have been developed on the many cliffs, crags and pinnacles, presenting variety and challenge to climbers of all levels of experience.
Or why not explore some of Victoria’s outback, by doing a day trip up to Lake Hindmarsh & Lake Albacutya (both currently dry). If you prefer your lakes with water in them, the Lake Lascelles at Hopetoun is a beautiful small lake ideal for families and picnics. Beulah, Brim and Warracknabeal also have waterholes which are all ideal for paddling, boating or fishing.
