Gourmet Experience – Country Hospitality

Graze Ballan

an eclectic experience for the ultimate foodie

The shires of Moorabool, Ballarat, Golden Plains and Hepburn are abundant with artisan producers and hidden treasures. When visiting why not stay in a unique setting where you can experience all the region has to offer at your fingertips. Lovers of quirky eclectic accommodation will revel in the retro and vintage vibes of Graze-Ballan. You can choose from the sleepy comfort of the Gypsy Van or the sixties caravan and relax in the vintage ambience of the gin lounge and dining cabin.  The serene location is ideal for a couple, two couples or a family, and furbabies are invited too!. You’re welcome to explore and gather produce from all of the hidden corners of the region and self cater in the camp kitchen. However, the perfect way to enjoy your stay is for you to sit back, relax and savour the region’s finest food and beverages prepared and served to you on site.  It’s the ideal way to enjoy a true country glamping experience with an added touch of class and 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 family reasons four years ago 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 7 chickens, 3 sheep, 3 goats, Colin the alpaca, 2 Muscovy ducks, 4 Guinea fowls, Misty the cat and new boss of the house, Daisy, a rescued working dog.  As previous café owners 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.
