Rose Arbour

The Rose’s that were planted in late August 2018 are showing off their beautiful blooms.

Dedicated to Kathleen Lebkowski, there are seven varieties from Climbing roses to Standards.Our guests just love the very comfortable outdoor chairs, and thoroughly enjoy the tranquillity of the arbour.
Come nightfall, the festoon lights come on the kookaburras start singing, just the perfect way to end the day with a glass of one of Gippsland’s great wines.

Just another reason to come and enjoy a stay at Tallawarra Homestead

Go Team!

Tallawarra Homestead are proud sponsors of Willarn Constructions’ entry into the Shitbox rally, a fund-raising event for Cancer. Craig and Nicole will join 200 other entries driving from Perth to Sydney. The rally commences on 8th May and concludes in Sydney on 17th May.
The Shitbox Rally challenges teams to drive cars under $1,000.00 across some of Australia’s most formidable roads, all in the name of charity!
We wish Craig and Nicole all the very best, safe drive


We would encourage you to support them in this amazing challenge,  and will endeavour to keep everyone posted as to how the guys are travelling.


Tallawarra Homestead has re-opened to full operations and we are looking forward to welcoming our guests.

Work is continuing and will continue to re build fences and at this stage the plan is to create a new memorial garden for Janine’s parents where the original farm house once stood that was lost during the fires.

The paddocks are turning green with the recent rains, and before long, our beautiful bush parcels will begin their regeneration.

Autumn is a wonderful time of the year to visit Gippsland, and there is no better place than Tallawarra Homestead in Tonimbuk, the gateway to Gippsland, to base your stay.

The large fire in the Coolgardie room is raring to go, the ideal place to enjoy one of the beautiful wines that the region has to offer.


Friday 8TH March 2019 was a very special day for Tallawarra Homestead!

Star Ratings – Quality Tourism Victoria (QTV) awarded Tallawarra Homestead a 5 Star rating for the category of Hosted Accommodation. This certification is acknowledged globally and is based on more than 200 criteria that have been ranked by Australian Travellers.

The three key assessment areas- Facilities and service, Cleanliness, and Quality and Condition that are applied to all aspects of the property.

Janine and Andrey are very proud of this recognition, and are delighted to share their excitement with all our previous guests, future guests’ and friends who have shared our journey.

Temporary Closure

Due to the recent fires that engulfed the Bunyip State Park and surrounds, Tallawarra Homestead will be closed until the 1st April 2019.

This will allow clearance work to be carried out around the property and ensuring that everything is ship shape for our guests. The Homestead itself wasn’t damaged, although the fire got very close.

We would like to extend a sincere thankyou to the CFA and other emergency personal that have worked demanding hours to ensure the safety of all those concerned.
