Overview

About the property

Due to the popularity of our other holiday rental property "The Ridge" we have renovated another house on our farm "The Grove".

The Grove is more spacious house with 3 bedrooms. With a larger living room and kitchen.

If you love peace, tranquillity and wildlife then this is the place for you. Abundant bird life and when walking along the banks of the Gunny Creek, you may spot a Wallaby or two..

The Gunbower Creek is a great spot for fishing and in summer it is a popular place for swimming and water skiing.

Murray cod, yellow belly and carp are often caught in the creek. Boats can be launched at the nearby boat ramp, which is just a two minute walk from the cottage. It is currently difficult to fish from the bank of the creek due to the large amount of water lilies growing in the shallow water. But we have installed a fishing jetty nearby to make it easier for visitors without a boat, to fish. The jetty is a 5 minute walk up stream from The Grove

Kayaks are available for tenants' use at no extra charge. Life jackets are supplied. Push bikes are also supplied.

We have good range of DVDs. Also a Wii console with a choice of 50 games available. Many hours of fun for kids. Let us know if you would like to have the Wii, so we can set it up before you arrive.

The Gunbower Creek is lowered from mid May till mid August. A shallow stream flows in the creek at this time of the year. Therefore the mud banks are exposed and it is difficult to get to the water to fish. Fishing is possible ten minutes from Gunbower in the Murray River. Please contact us if you require further information.

In Gunbower there is a Takeaway Shop that also sells all basic needs, McGillivrays' Butcher Shop and the Gunny Pub for excellent meals .

Locality

The Grove is situated on the Gunbower Creek at Gunbower, Victoria, 40 kilometres west of Echuca.

From Echuca travel towards Kerang along the Murray Valley Highway. Just before entering Gunbower, turn right into Fox Island Road, then right into Richards Road. House entrance is 1.8 km on right amongst the very large gum trees.

Property

The Grove is situated on our cattle farm property of approximately 200 acres. We also have another holiday house on the farm (The Ridge is also listed on this website) which is about 300 metres further down Richards Road.

Great getaway in beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

The property had everything we needed, fully equipped, plenty of space especially for the dog who had a ball. We loved being so close to the creek, the beautiful sunrise and sunset, the use of the kayaks and no-one around, not even passing traffic, just the sound of the abundant birdlife. Thanks Richard and Elisabeth for a lovely weekend away

Beautifully preserved old house

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house, Beth was a great host and even offered us late check out. The house was full of old charm but with every bit of modern comfort. There were electric blankets as well. It was clean and everything was well balanced. We would love to go back and the surrounding areas are great to explore. There is lots of space for young kids to run around.

Dog Friendly

  • 4 of 5

Exactly what we were looking for, somewhere the dog could run around, and close to my friends in Kybaram and Kerang.
