About Geoffrey Gedge

For the last 10 years I have had a passion in delivering guests the best possible experience they can have when away from home. We all spend too much time working and don't want to waste our time or money when we want to get away from it all. Hopefully you will feel that our properties in Hepburn Springs not only give you real value for money, but also make your time away memorable.

Geoffrey Gedge purchased this house in 2008

Why Geoffrey Gedge chose Hepburn Springs

Bluegums is quite unique in that it is built mainly from recycled materials. The main structure of the house is built from reclaimed bluestone and sandstone from an old bridge in Ballarat. The house has been refitted to be as eco-friendly as possible without compromising on luxury.

Exquisite hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 2 kids under 6, and it was comfortable and had everything we needed, right down to generous supplies of detergent, snacks and board games. Geoff has thought of everything and the service is just as considerate as the home itself. The kids loved watching the kangaroos each night.
