In a valley lies a place to sit, of sand coloured blocks that rise from the earth. The dark grey roof reaches high into the sky, where eagles soar, hunt and glide. The veranda circles, long and wide, and wombats dig beneath and hide. Kookaburras greet the start of day, and frogs chirp in numbers throughout the night. Parrots, Galahs, squawk and take flight, as kangaroos descend, to square up and fight. An hour’s drive from the world’s most liveable city, an hour’s drive to another world of peace and tranquillity. Come and sit, Tallawarra, say the local people, Welcome to Tallawarra Homestead. Yes, come and sit! Tallawarra Homestead is situated at Tonimbuk, a picturesque location on the edge of West Gippsland, an hour’s drive from the Melbourne CBD. Nestled into the surrounding countryside, the environment at Tallawarra is one of tranquility and peace, a place to recharge the battery, and rediscover you. Tallawarra Homestead is a certified 5 Star rated Property, Quality Tourism Accredited Business and Sustainable Tourism Accredited Business.

This is easily the best B&B I have ever stayed. I am incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to stay at Tallawarra. The accomodation is luxurious. There are so many zones to relax. From the stunning outdoors to the library, lounge room or many casual seating options. Every little detail has been considered. The books in the library are brilliant, the home is kept in pristine condition and the grounds are manicured to perfection. What makes this the best B&B is the service. You will instantly feel relaxed. They have the perfect balance of ensuring that you're looked after while also ensuring that you have time to relax. I will certainly be making this a regular place to go when needing to escape from the city for a break. Thank you!

Tallawarra Homestead is one of those rare gems you find where it manages to exceed your expectations. The homestead itself is beautifully decorated, warm and inviting with different rooms to wander through, a well stocked bar, plenty of things to read in the reading room and a gorgeous sunroom. Yet, the real highlight for us was the invitational hospitality shown by Andrey and Janine. They managed to offer a calm, cool and collected service that anticipated any of our needs, offered great local knowledge of the surrounding area and aim to always put us at ease. We stayed in the Omaroo suite which was warm and comfortable, offered a spacious bed and had a huge onsuite. On top of this, there was plenty of culinary options during the stay from afternoon tea of scones, jam and cream (or hot cross buns in our case) and the breakfast each morning was cooked with care. We'll be making another trip back to Tallawarra Homestead in the future and would highly recommend anyone looking to recharge the battery to give Andrey and Janine a call today.

Andrey and Janine were the most wonderful hosts for our weekend away from the kids. The homestead is beautifully decorated, warm and inviting with different rooms to wander through, plenty of reading material and interesting curiosities and a gorgeous fireplace. Andrey and Janine are intuitive hosts, anticipating any need but keeping the right level of distance when required - and they are simply lovely people. The room we were in was warm and comfortable, an amazing bed, very clean and it had a huge bathroom! Afternoon tea of scones, jam and cream were most welcome and the breakfast the following morning was cooked with care and simply delicious! We highly recommend Tallawarra Homestead for your next weekend ...or week...away!

We are delighted that you enjoyed your escape from the kids! We all need a break sometimes from our daily routines. We often wonder if the kids also enjoy a break too! As an adults only venue we are very pleased to offer this experience to our guests. We are flattered that you have such high praise for us as your hosts, and that you have highlighted our ability to vanish if guests just want to be alone with their loved one. We try very hard to read our guests and offer them the type of break they crave. We are very thankful to have met you both with your passion for travel and your willingness and enthusiasm to help us plan our next great escape to a country that you both obviously adore! We wish you both safe and happy travels in the future and we hope in the not too distant future you will give the kids a break and again visit Tallawarra Homestead to share time together with each other.

Tallawarra Homestead is absolutely gorgeous. Each room could not be more comfortable - the mattress & pillows are highlights. The hosts Janine and Andrey are beautifully welcoming and looked after our every need. From the scrumptious scones for afternoon tea, yummy cooked breakfasts and well stocked bar we wanted for nothing. An interesting surprise was to find out Andrey's history with the Melbourne Football club and his storytelling of travels to Ireland were entertaining. We were most impressed with the couple's generous support of war veterans. All up, we would DEFINITELY recommend staying there for a break or an event.
