Buninyong has four free-use tennis courts, skate park, parkour park and a outdoor swimming pool which is open in Summer.
Cyclists love Buninyong. Home to the Cycling Australia Road National Championships, riders love the mountain roads which wind through a rural and bushland setting and finish with a selection of great cyclist friendly cafes.
The local supermarket is well stocked and friendly. Buninyong also offers a pharmacy, pub, post office, bakery, takeaways, newsagent, petrol, vintage goods, bike shop and repairs and a medical clinic.
At 745m, dormant volcano Mt Buninyong is a delight to walk around and explore. It can be seen from the property. If you're keen, it takes about one hour to walk to the top via the well marked and scenic Goldfields walking track.
