Such normal things as free Wifi, a excellent BBQ with every thing provided except your food, and friendly magpies complete the picture, the surprise was seeing a kangaroo outside my cabin this morning.

We spent a very relaxing night here on a slow trip from Adelaide to Melbourne. It's a terrific location so close to the southern Grampians, and the hosts have done a great job setting things up for your stay.

The cottages are modern, clean and very well maintained. The property is spacious, with lawns and large trees and in walking distance to the main street. It was a great place to stay to dine at the Royal Mail hotel and climb Mount Sturgeon. Hosts Carolyn and George are friendly and helpful.

Lovely cottages and great base for exploring the Grampians. We climbed My Sturgeon and had amazing views from the top. Cafe 109 was a great place to eat lovely food and fabulous service. George and Caroline were very helpful and gave us lots of information.

Hosts George and Carolyn provide well-appointed, modern and very comfortable cottages with rustic charm in a beautiful setting. Genuine Aussie hospitality. We highly recommend the Southern Grampian area and in particular the SG Cottages. Well done George and Carolyn, we really enjoyed our stay with you!
