On the far side of the Grampians, nestled in stringy bark bushland on the edge of Rocklands sits Yangoora. Once home to farmers, bee keepers, rose growers and tree changers, now yours to enjoy. Settle on the deck as the red necked wallabies shyly appear and native birds splash and natter in the coolness of the birdbath. Kayak the clear water, try your hand at catching a fish or wander the dirt track to explore, fossick and be captivated by the bush.
“Yangoora simply makes you smile! We were greeted by a warm home from the wood heater that Anita had kindly started before our arrival. The home is spacious, sparkling clean, exceptionally equipped, has an endless supply of firewood and is decorated with touches that make it very comfortable, cosy and unique. The Claude Austin Forest & Rocklands Reservoir are conveniently accessed through the property by foot or vehicle and we were thrilled to easily take the supplied kayaks out to the water. However, there is plenty to keep you entertained at the property with a full bookshelf, outdoor fire pit, veggie garden, pool table and large acreage to explore. Spending everyday mesmerised by the wallabies, rosellas, sheep, ducks and more was a delight and left us feeling so relaxed and refreshed. We cannot wait to visit again!”

“1. Key 1: May be a village? There is no signal on our mobile phone (it is already the strongest operator at the beginning of the T word): 2. Key 2: After 9:30 pm, you can't use the shower room. The owner can go to bed early. Although he can go to the bathroom after 9:30, it may also be disturbed. The hostess may wake up easily, although the bathroom in the bathroom is the same as the shower room. Separated by a hall; 3. The room is clean and tidy, there is an electric blanket in the heater, and there is no fear of being cold; 4. People are still very good people, remember to brush things clean after using the kitchen; 5. We went back to the Great Ocean Road from Melbourne to the Pink Lake in the northwest of Horsham on the first day. In fact, we can avoid the crowded traffic on the Great Ocean Road. Don’t think that we are walking on the Great Ocean Road. Far away, you can't see the sea almost without the sights, hahaha;”

“Dad enjoys his stay at Wongaburra so much. He wrote this poem and ask me to send to Chris & Justin. I will try my best to translate it into English. [No English / Chinese / Any Language could explain how fantastic this place is !!!] ------------------------------------ Racecourse As if back in time, Seeing the future again. Touched Beethoven's "Hero", "Fate", "Pastoral", There seem to be many, many insights, Ordinary and great, Reality and nobility, Dreamlike. Language barrier It seems everything is so far away, But sincere and warm, so much heart and culture, It's so close! So cozy! Racecourse is a fairy tale of today, ancient and future ... <Wongaburra> Feel like being back to ancient time, And look forward to the future. I touch Beethoven's Heroic, Fate and Pastoral symphonies here, A steady flow of inspiration and perception. Triviality and Greatness; Reality and Nobleness; Life is but a dream. The language barrier seems like the summit of Grampians, But the earnest and warmest details are melting into this place. Wongaburra, Today, Ancient, A fairy tale future ...”
