Hawksview at Mafeking
Secluded on tranquil farmland surrounded by Grampians National Park, Hawksview offers modern comfort, expansive views and a range of activities. Hawksview is a modern self-contained house with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The original cottage was sadly lost in the bushfire of January 2006, but has been rebuilt with expanded accommodation. Still intimate for one or two, the house can accommodate up to six adults or eight including children. At Hawksview you can forget the car for your entire stay - a range of walks from gentle to strenuous, are available from your doorstep. Wildflowers and wildlife abound, and surrounding peaks will reward you with wonderful views. Mafeking was the site of Victoria's last gold rush, and the diggings and other features of the settlement are still in evidence in Mafeking reserve. Alternatively, you can explore the region, with Halls Gap, Dunkeld and Great Western wineries all around 30 minutes by car.
