WE WON!!!!

And we are stoked!!!

We recently entered the Neoen Grampians Pyrenees Business Awards for 2017 presented by Northern Grampians Shire Council, Ararat Rural City Council and Pyrenees Shire Council.

We have been apprehensive about entering awards…we love what we do, and are super proud of what we have achieved since we bought the park. We have an extremely high rating on online review platforms and receive a lot of positive remarks. The business is thriving.
On numerous occasions we have been asked to enter awards, not just local but also state… but what happens IF you win? Will people have higher expectations, be more demanding? Also, it takes an enormous amount of time and effort to enter those awards, which takes time away from our core business, accommodating guests and at the same time constantly improving the park….

Always trying to look at the positives we did decide to enter the 2017 Neoen Grampians Pyrenees Awards… we owe this gorgeous region to assist putting it on the map as THE holiday destination in Victoria. We feel we had a great opportunity to contribute to exposure by entering the award…


The Northern Territory has Kakadu and Victoria has the Grampians! A place where you can immerse in nature and absorb all it has to offer. A place where you will be stunned by bird sounds, rock formations, sunsets, Australian wild life and clear fresh air. A place full of hikes, walks, wild flowers and waterfalls. A place where you will escape your day to day and come out totally refreshed and re-energised… And all this FREE OF CHARGE! The Grampians National Park has no entry fees.

So in honour of the Grampians CHEERS!

What a night we had!
We invited our manager Michaël and his girlfriend Kaat. Michaël has been with us from the beginning and we could have never achieved what we did without him! Thanks Michaël! On the day of the awards Michaël got the phone call that his permanent residency was approved so we ended up with a double celebration!

Held at the St Arnaud town hall, organised by the Northern Grampians Shire, we had a blast of a night! Great music, lots of networking opportunities, delicious canapes, fine wine, 3 course meal and lots of laughter and celebration. Compliments to the organisers, such a high end well run event!


We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our staff, past and present. The last 5.5 years have been full of sweat, laughs and tears, massive investments and risks and ridiculously hard work. We are so proud to have won the best tourism attraction or service in the Neoen Grampians Pyrenees Business Awards. Without you, we couldn’t have done it! Your visitation, encouragement, enthusiasm and positive remarks, kept us going and will for a long time coming!

We also like to congratulate all other finalists and winners of the Neoen Grampians Pyrenees Business Awards for 2017 for their outstanding achievements!
