Mount Mitchell Cottage

Enjoy the Victorian Pyrenees Mountain views and Australian farm life while staying at the Mount Mitchell Cottage. This beautifully restored bluestone cottage provides exceptional accommodation in the district.

The Cottage is ideally positioned between the historical city of Ballarat (30 minutes) and the magical Pyrenees wine district. Located only 90 minutes from Melbourne, suggests a perfect weekend country retreat.

Immerse yourself in the significant heritage property of Mt Mitchell. Explore the 10 acres of beautiful and productive gardens; walk through the paddocks to explore the property’s lake and winding creeks and engage in some of the farming activities.

Mt Mitchell Cottage is ideal for couples desiring a romantic getaway or a family keen to experience country life. Guests can request complete privacy or be included in busy farm action. Collect your own eggs, catch a yabby, harvest some fresh vegetables from the impressive kitchen garden and pick fruit off the trees in the orchard.

Base yourself at Mt Mitchell while touring the regional sites. Fabulous tourism opportunities in Ballarat (Sovereign Hill, MADE, Ballarat Art Gallery), the popular Talbot Farmers Market, and award-winning Pyrenees wineries (Dalwhinnie, Taltarni, Blue Pyrenees, Mt Avoca), The Avoca Hotel, and Talbot Provedore are all highly recommended.
