Staying at Moranghurk Homestead

is a relaxing, no fuss experience even with a crowd. Tucking into a grand feast before bunking down in the Shearers’ Quarters has a quality of its own.

The large kitchen/dining area has all the amenities for a sumptuous feast or alternatively you can kick back and simply throw a snag on the barbie or rustle up a bowl of pasta. There is also a small sitting room with an open fire.

Shearers’ Quarters

The Shearers’ Quarters cater for up to 30 people in bunk beds spread across eight rooms. Children can bunk down together in the room containing eight beds while the adults enjoy the smaller rooms.

Toilet and shower facilities adjoin the Shearers’ Quarters, both of which have disabled access. The Shearers’ Quarters is secure for young ones who may not be ready to explore the great outdoors on their own.

Things to do

For those with the inclination Moranghurk has an abundance of activities in store.

There are scenic cliff top or bush walks along the Moorabool River where platypuses live beneath the shady banks, waterfalls tumble and fish tempt anglers; a tennis/basketball court and kilometres of gravel roadway to ride bicycles, jog or simply stroll.

The open spaces, hedges, avenues and numerous buildings provide plenty of room for exploring and letting the imagination roam. Wherever you look there is something new to see, from the elegant gums to the dry-stone walls and post and rail fences, to sheep and alpacas grazing peacefully in nearby paddocks, and kangaroos, koalas, possums and a huge variety of birdlife to spot by both day and night.

Making the most of your stay

To make the most of your time at Moranghurk Homestead Liz and Ross recommend you stay at least two nights. While pricing is flexible and depends on the number of people and the number of nights you choose to stay, Moranghurk Homestead can offer 15-30 people accommodation from $700.

What to bring

All you need to bring to make your stay comfortable is towels, linen and bedding, a sharp knife, your own food and perhaps a favourite glass for enjoying the quality wines grown in the area.
