Gourmet Experience – Country Hospitality

Graze Ballan


Remember the days of a true BnB where the host welcomes you, shows you around and offers the option of spoiling you with delicious food and beverages.  The shires of Moorabool, Ballarat, Golden Plains and Hepburn are abundant with artisan producers and hidden treasures and present the perfect backdrop for a stay at Graze-Ballan.

Lovers of quirky eclectic accommodation will revel in the retro and vintage vibes of Graze-Ballan. The bedrooms are comprised of the sleepy comfort of the Gypsy Van and the cute 70’s caravan. For your ‘time out’ space, you’ll relax in the unique ambience of the gin lounge/dining cabin.  The serene location is ideal for a couple, two couples or a family, and furbabies are invited too! You can explore and gather produce from hidden corners of the region and self cater in the camp kitchen or sit back, relax and savour the region’s finest offerings prepared and served to you on site.

It’s the perfect way to enjoy a true country glamping experience with an added touch of class. Being less than an hour from Melbourne, Tullamarine and Avalon makes it an ideal ‘getaway with a difference’ for locals and interstate visitors alike.


About Us

With a population just over 3,000 we love Ballan for its convenience, country charm and the many great offerings for weekend outings close at hand. We moved here for a tree change in 2017 and found one of the few 5-acre properties remaining in the area.   Foodies and animal lovers at heart, we have decided to invite others to enjoy what we have.   We are proud parents to 4 chickens, 3 sheep, 3 goats, Colin the alpaca, 2 Muscovy ducks, 3 Guinea fowls, Misty the cat and new boss of the house, Daisy, a rescued working dog.  Coming from a hospitality backgroud we love to cook and have spent endless weekends exploring the awesome local produce close by.  Daylesford and Ballarat are a mere 20 minutes’  from our property and are surrounded by other picturesque country towns offering some amazing scenery and nice surprises. To this day we are discvering more and more in the hidden corners of our region.


We look forward to sharing it with you soon.
