The Ridge Gunbower..

Waterfront Cottage with kitchen and fireplace
The cottage is situated on 8 acres of bush land with creek frontage.
If your preferred dates are not available make sure you look at our other holiday house "The Grove".
If you love peace, tranquillity and wildlife then this is the place for you. Abundant bird life and when walking along the banks of the Gunny Creek, you may spot a Wallaby or two. Paddock can also be used for motorbike riding for the kids.

We love people who bring their dogs and other pets on holidays with them. We do have a secure dog yard. Pets are allowed inside. But be sure to bring your own blankets/ bedding for them to lay on. Do not allow pets on furniture and bedding. And please vacuum dog hair from floor before leaving.

The Gunbower Creek is a great spot for fishing and in summer it is a popular place for swimming and water skiing.
Murray cod, yellow belly and carp are often caught in the creek. Boats can be launched at the nearby boat ramp, which is just a five minute walk from the cottage. It is currently difficult to fish from the bank of the creek due to the large amount of water lilies growing in the shallow water. But we have installed a fishing jetty nearby to make it easier for visitors without a boat, to fish.
Row boat, canoe and kayak are available for tenants' use at no extra charge. Kids life jackets are supplied.

NEW!!! Streaming services Stan and PrimeVideo available for free. Literally thousands of movies and TV shows to choose from.
Also have good range of DVDs if internet is out.

Free unlimited WiFi Internet available.

The Gunbower Creek is lowered from mid May till mid August. A shallow stream flows in the creek at this time of the year. Therefore the mud banks are exposed and it is difficult to get to the water to fish. Fishing is possible ten minutes from Gunbower in the Murray River. Please contact us if you require further information.
In Gunbower there is a Takeaway Shop,that also provides all basic requirements, McGillivrays' Butcher Shop , and The Gunny Pub which provides excellent meals .


Cottage is comes with 8 acres by the Gunbower Creek at Gunbower, Victoria, 40 kilometres west of Echuca.
From Echuca travel towards Kerang along the Murray Valley Highway. Just before entering Gunbower, turn right into Fox Island Road, then right into Richards Road. Cottage entrance is 2.1 km on right.


The Ridge is situated on our cattle farm property of approximately 200 acres. We also have another holiday house on the farm (The Grove is also listed on this website) which is about 300 metres further up Richards Road.
Air-conditioned accommodation at this cottage offers fireplaces and DVD players. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils.

5/5 Excellent

Loved it. Being right on the water and watching all the birds. The house had everything we needed. It was a great base to visit the area and also a lovely quiet spot to do nothing. Great spot for a stress free wind down holiday.

5/5 Excellent

Great location
Great location close to Gunbower township and along side Gunbower Creek. Nice walks along creek. Dog friendly with large, fully fenced, secure yard. While the house was old and a little run down, the beds were comfortable, it was spotlessly clean and the linens were fresh and crisp. Great addition of Stan and Google Chrome. Gunbower Hotel close by worth a visit for their steaks.

4/5 Good

5/5 Excellent

A wonderful experience
It was a really relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting...Lovely birds visiting us every morning, stately gum trees, a creek in front to fish from ... Our dog enjoyed the large enclosed yard. The fire in the living room in the evenings was a welcome bonus for a cold week. The response to queries were immediate from the host (Sean) with an easy check in procedure. Overall a wonderful experience and we will be back!
