About Barooma Homestead

Barooma is a haven not to be missed.

A treat for the senses and the perfect place to stay if you’re looking for a regional getaway, a relaxing escape, or temporary sea change. The space is ideal for groups with plenty of parking for cars, trailers, caravans and horse floats. Kick back and listen to the distant breaking waves as you watch the cattle (or maybe a kangaroo) on your doorstep.  

Barooma Homestead is steeped in history, dating back to the 1800’s. The comfortably updated shearer’s quarters used to be a hive of activity during shearing time on what was originally a 5000 acre farm. Barooma is now a small family-owned and run farm with quaint accommodation, modern amenities and a combination of historical and modern dwellings. 

When staying at Barooma you can enjoy spectacular sunrises, settle with your favourite beverage by the fire as the sun sets, and soak up the stunning evening stargazing opportunities. Whether you are a corporate team, a family, group of friends, club or sporting group looking for a unique farm stay experience in Victoria, Barooma is the place to be.
