Experience Narmbool — a magnificent and historic pastoral property of 2,000 hectares located at Elaine, just 30 minutes from Ballarat and 90 minutes from Melbourne.
Owned and operated by Sovereign Hill, Narmbool is a fascinating example of sustainable farming in a diverse and fragile ecosystem.
Narmbool carries some 20,000 sheep and has long been famed for its fine quality merino wool. With a thousand acres of bushland set aside for conservation, Narmbool provides a habitat for a wide range of flora and fauna. There are platypus in Williamsons Creek and kangaroos, koalas and Australian native birds abound.
The Narmbool Lodge provides modern, environmentally friendly motel accommodation suited to school groups. Set in luxuriant gardens adjacent to the bluestone homestead is The Garden Room — an elegant restaurant available for weddings and pre-booked functions.
Rolling green hills, craggy volcanic escarpments, commanding views of nearby Mount Buninyong and clean, crisp air further enchance the visitor experience of Narmbool. Narmbool was donated to Sovereign HiIl in 2000 for the express purpose of developing the property as an educational resource.
