Comfort and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This very spacious and comfortable house was perfect for a winter getaway. Beautiful views of the river and surrounding countryside. Log fire plus reverse cycle heating. So close to Warrnambool and great ocean road, yet very peaceful. We want to bring our extended family here for a family get-together.

Peace and tranquility at its best!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Christmas week at Hopkins River Homestead. It provided us with a beautiful venue to relax and enjoy the quiet life, yet Warrnambool was only a short drive away for coffee shops, restaurants etc. We would highly recommend this spacious property for family gatherings, especially if you need to "recharge the batteries"! A wonderful week was had by all!

Lovely Homestead with river view

  • 5 of 5

A very spacious homestead with a great view down to the river. Our trainspotter son loved the glimpses of the v-line train across the valley. Lots of room for a large family and both formal and informal living areas for kids to spread out and mum and dad to have some quiet reading time too. The cows over the fence and the ropes at the swimming spot 100m up river added to the charm. It is about 10 mins drive to the centre of Warrnambool or the patrolled beach.
