Hi there, we are Vickie and Ed. We met during a chance encounter hiking Mt Rinjani on the island of Lombok, some 20 years ago. Vickie (from the UK) and Ed (from the Netherlands) chose to settle in Australia.
With a spirit for adventure and both with a passion for hospitality, we made a move to Australia. After a ‘scout’ around, we settled on Mansfield, in Victoria’s High Country – and then embarked on creating the vision of BullerRoo Farm Stay.
The idyllic setting of Mansfield (Barwite to be specific) ticked all our boxes, year-round tourism draw cards, breathtaking scenery and wonderful local food and produce. After building Stone Creek Cottage in 2005, then establishing gardens and beautiful landscaping, we set our sights on a new challenge, beginning the final stage of our grand project in 2018.
Ed, who had worked on many architectural designed buildings in Mansfield and Mt Buller, fell in love with many of the design elements. Being a tradesman, he appreciated the attention to detail and craftsmanship, and combined many of these elements – with the difference being the incredible views over the Barwite Valley.
We are passionate about providing a great experience to our guests and sharing our knowledge of the local area. Many of our guests are interested in the design elements of the property and the build so, if you’re interested, we are happy to chat about our journey and the creative process to inspire you with your build.
We also hope…
When our guests visit this beautiful place we live in, that you will explore the amazing region of north east Victoria, fill your esky with our regional produce, and when you travel home… remember our undulating landscapes, our far horizons and our clear, star filled skies. And, come back soon to explore our ever-evolving story.
Vickie & Ed.
