Vacation Rentals

Updated on May 24, 2019

Enjoy 17 acres of private land boasting two houses - pet and family friendly!

Located in: Halls Gap

We are one of the only properties in Halls Gap catering for large groups and if you want space, peace and privacy you'll just love it. We are kept busy with bookings from large family (multi-generation) and friendship groups and just love that our property brings people together to catch up, unwind and simply have fun. If you want beautiful views and the opportunity to be amongst nature and wildlife, you'll love your time at Jinchilla.

What makes it unique is that there are two fully equipped houses on the property situated 100m apart: the Farmhouse and the Lodge providing clean and comfortable accommodation for larger groups of all ages.


THE FARMHOUSE: This is a 4 bedroom double story home sleeping 13 people. Upstairs is a retreat with 3 beds (queen and 2 singles) including five squares of living encompassing a spacious living area and ensuite with toilet, shower & bath. A perfect light filled area to admire the stunning views and spot shooting stars through the telescope at night.

There are three neat and well appointed bedrooms downstairs - one is set up as a kids room with 2 sets of bunks, one is a queen with direct access to the downstairs bathroom and the other has a double + single bunk bed.

The farmhouse has a fully equipped kitchen & dining area with a new fridge, dishwasher and oven. It is well stocked with all kitchen utensils, crockery, glasses and cooking requirements including a slow cooker and nespresso coffee machine. A real home away from home and plenty of cupboards to store your things.

There is a separate lounge with TV, DVD, stereo and leather lounges along with a wood fire heater warming the house in the cooler months. We have installed a new reverse cycle AC in the lounge room however also have evaporative cooling throughout the house too. The farmhouse has a fully equipped laundry with washing machine & a dryer, and the downstairs bathroom has a separate shower and bath. There are 3 toilets in the farmhouse.

Outside is a large undercover outdoor area with BBQ facilities, ample outdoor furniture for large groups, dartboard, table tennis table, basketball ring and volleyball net. There is plenty of room to roam and explore, kick the footy, have a game of outdoor cricket or build a tree house. Toast marshmallows and enjoy a campfire in the cooler months.

THE LODGE: This is a 2 bedroom cottage with a main double bedroom and a second bedroom sleeping 5 (2 single beds plus a double – single bunk bed). The lodge comprises a comfortable lounge area with a wood fire heater and reverse cycle AC, open plan kitchen / dining with all amenities including a new oven. There are laundry facilities (washing machine), bathroom with bath & shower (all in one) and a separate toilet.

The front porch is undercover with BBQ facilities and outdoor seating – it is a perfect spot to enjoy a wine whilst admiring the scenery. The lodge has a fully fenced outside area to contain both little people & pets.


Jinchilla farm is set on 17 acres of private land and we're set far off the main road so away from traffic, noise and people too. Kids can ride their bikes and scooters freely and there's plenty of grassy spaces for picnics with a picnic basket in each house. There are no other direct neighbouring houses nearby so you will have uninterrupted views and privacy. Walk through the red gums, explore the surrounds and enjoy the diverse wildlife who also call Jinchilla home including kangaroos, deer, emu, echidnas, rabbits, birds and lizards, along with many insects depending on the season you visit.

There are two dams on the property - you may want to try your luck at fishing and are welcome to bring your own kayaks or water sports equipment to use on the larger of the dams (which we do over Summer). It goes without saying that all children must be supervised by their parents when around the water as our dams are unfenced and one is very deep. We have some bikes for our guests to use so take them out and cycle around the property and local area if you feel energetic (note that these are infrequently maintained so we always encourage guests to bring their own if they can).

Jinchilla makes an awesome base for exploring the Grampians, lakes and waterfalls, rock climbing and bush walking with the local area catering beautifully for all ages. We are across the road from the Halls Gap Zoo (highly recommend you visit), 800m from Halls Gap - Fallen Giants Winery and down the road from Red Rock Olives / Cafe. We're a short 3 minute drive into Halls Gap village and all shops, pubs and amenities plus an easy drive into neighbouring towns including Pomonal, Stawell and Ararat. Whether it's marshmallows by the fire in winter or enjoying watersports at Lake Fyans or Lake Belmont in the summer, Halls Gap is a great option all year round. So much to see and do - just ask us and we'll point you in the right direction.

We can also connect you with catering and arrange for local wine and produce to be available to you on arrival. Again, just ask and we’ll do our very best to accommodate your needs.


We supply all bedding and linen, bath towels, bath mats and tea towels through a linen company. Basic provisions are provided.

Due to ongoing theft of our supply we no longer provide firewood however guests are welcome to take what they can from the property (axes provided). We have no problem gathering wood from our property during our stays. Alternatively this can be bought locally.

Please note that we do not have WIFI – not such a bad thing when you want to disconnect or get the kids off gadgets.


Jinchilla is a family friendly property with portacots, strollers and high chairs available in each house along with DVDs, books, toys and games. We've got kids too so really want to make your holiday and travel experience as easy as possible. Don't forget the gumboots in winter!

Pets must be well behaved as Jinchilla is home to an abundance of wildlife and our neighbours keep cattle, sheep and horses which stray close to our property (always a thrill for the kids). Please note that the property is largely unfenced (apart from the lodge) so make sure your beloved pooch will come back if called!
