Gippsland- Here we come!

Gippsland is such an amazing part of Victoria, a region not readily discussed around the BBQ, or a social gathering of friends, however, its diversity is truly outstanding, from the snowfields to the North, to the stunning coastal vistas to the south, and in between, magnificent forests, mouth-watering fresh produce, and some of the best cool climate wines in Australia.


Bunyip State Forest

There is so much to see, that there just isn’t enough time to explore this magnificent region in just one or two days, so Tallawarra Homestead is offering an amazing mid -week special  deal,  book for  two nights and get the third night free.

The Spring Breakfast menu has been introduced, with emphasis on fresh berries to highlight the best our farmers have to offer. Bunyip Beekeeper Honey has also been included in the line-up of great local produce. On offer from Bunyip Beekeeper Honey is Yellowbox and Leatherwood, both cold extracted from 100% raw honey. Yum!! And it’s real honey!

Busy, Busy ,Busy

Its been a very busy couple of months, and we have finally caught our breath to let you all know what’s happening at Tallawarra Homestead. Firstly, a true and very dedicated member of Tallawarra Homestead, my mother Kathleen passed away recently. My mother was a valuable part of the setup at the homestead, showing guests around the property, assisting Janine make the scones for afternoon tea and helping with the cleaning. We miss her very much and have dedicated a very special addition to the property, which we will share with you in the very near future.


Kathleen hard at work!!!


We have completed our submission for the 2018 RACV Tourism Awards, which will be announced at a gala event in late November. We were so proud of achieving a Bronze Award last year, and fingers crossed will share in the awards again this year.

Winter has come and gone, in a flash! And Spring in now upon us. The trees are slowly starting to bud, and the days getting longer, and a little warmer!!!! Our Spring Breakfast menu is now available and a sample menu will be published next week.

We have made improvements to all the guest rooms, which we are sure, will impress those who have stayed with us in the past, so now is a great time to make that return visit to Tallawarra Homestead, Janine and I look forward to catching up.

Samsung Tablets in Guest rooms

Tallawarra Homestead has reached another milestone in its quest to ensure our guests are fully provided for during their stay, with the introduction of Samsung Tablets in each guest room, included on the tablet is our guest’s compendium.

Guests can now seek information on Tallawarra Homestead through the recently introduced electronic guest compendium, look up local tourism facilities such as wineries, restaurants, local markets and find everything at their fingertips to further enhance their stay at Tallawarra Homestead.

This is just another reason to plan your next break and select Tallawarra Homestead as your base to explore the beautiful region of West Gippsland.

Winter Breakfast Menu

Our last blog for the  Winter Promotions, features local produce (Wine and Cheese) from the Gippsland region, as an enticement to spend a night or two at Tallawarra Homestead. Well, we thought we would also provide those who we haven’t quite  been convinced another reason to stay, our fabulous breakfast menu!
There are two things we must nail as a B&B, a good night’s sleep, and breakfast that will hopefully see you through to dinner time!
Dietary requirements you say, no problems, just let us know prior to your arrival, and we will do our best to ensure you are catered for.
Bon Appetite!
