I wish we had booked more days then just three. Why? Because the location has now flaws: Five individual little houses in the wilderness, but close to Halls Gap. The fully-equipped kitchen is gorgeous, the overall appearance is perfect. You get breakfast supplies (milk, eggs, pan-cake mix, mushrooms, tomate, bread, croissants, jam) of very high quality. Everything is fully functionable and spotlessly clean. But the most important thing is: you get your privacy and you see more wildlife than when being in the adjacent National Park. We had a kangaroo coming as close as 5 m to us (as cautiously watching us as we watched it): It knew that there was a little bucket of water for the birds and wanted to take a sip as well. But more interesting are all the birds passing by: Make sure you have your camera ready, we saw at least 10 different bird species everyday. The owners provide a lot of helpful books, maps and brochures. We can recommend to make the tour around the property that a neighbour of Boroka Downs regularly offers. He knows a lot about birds, wallabies and kangaroos and has a lot of interesting stories to tell. Go there - you will not be disappointed. If you are afraid of animals however: stay at home.
