Overview

About the property

Dorm Rooms, Eco Housing, Corporate, Retreat, Festival Venue, Camping

Phoenix Park Ballan is like a funky school camp for adults or families. With 14 rooms consisting of 6 queen bed rooms, 3 twin single bed rooms and 5 bunk rooms, we comfortably sleep up to 60 people. We also have a main hall/lounge area and a large communal kitchen complete with a commercial sized pizza oven - great for holding a group gathering. With an additional games/ band / theatre room and lots of space for outdoor activities get your friends or family or club together for a weekend that won't break the bank. Check out our website to see the retro styled hall and the refurbished rooms.

An easy 50 minutes from Melbourne, we are under 20 minutes drive to Daylesford and Ballarat, which means there are lots of day activities within a short drive.

Given our facilities are on an old caravan park, we also have powered sites for vans and loads of camping area. No permanent residents live on the grounds, so group bookings cover the whole property. Lots of room for kids to safely ride their bikes around.

We have 3 Eco houses on site that can be booked according to availability. Enquire through website.

Fabulous for family groups

  • 4 of 5

It was great for people of all ages. The playroom was perfect for all the kids, and the adults loved the open fire in the main hall. Kitchen facilities were fabulous. Keep in mind the hall has to be hired separately, and per day, not making it a cheap stay.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 30+ ranging in age from 5 to 85. We had a really enjoyable stay. Cameron was extremely helpful and assisted us in every possible way. The beds were clean and comfy and the kitchen had everything you could wish for. We will definitely return.
