Birches on Bourkes
Welcome to Birches on Bourkes Terang, where luxury and country living combine for a special getaway.
Conveniently located close to the heart of Terang at 18 Bourkes Road, Birches on Bourkes is a fully renovated Federation style property brimming with quality fittings and country hospitality.
We aim to give you a unique country living experience in a charming setting and to make your stay a relaxing and memorable one.
The classic house was built in 1905 as the rectory for the Anglican Church and was renovated after the current owners purchased it in 1996.
It is a well-known local property, commonly referred to around town as `the Rectory’.
The recent renovations radiate quality throughout and Birches on Burkes is situated in a beautiful garden setting on a quarter acre block, complete with our namesake birch trees.
The garden is of Australian Open Garden Scheme standard. The shaded setting is ideal for relaxing and we also have a private courtyard for your enjoyment and convenience.
We are a short walk (less than five minutes) to the main street where a variety of popular hotel and cafe meals are available, along with local shops for your convenience. The pub meals are well known for their traditional Aussie fare.
Bourkes Road is easy to find and runs parallel to the Princes Highway on the eastern side of Terang.
There is plenty to do in and around Terang, and Birches on Bourkes will be happy to help with local information gained from a lifetime of experience in the area.
Terang is also an ideal and convenient gateway to the broader region. We’re just a 30-minute drive to Warrnambool, 45 minutes to Port Fairy or Port Campbell and the Great Ocean Road and about three hours away from Melbourne. We’re also a convenient starting point to visit The Grampians, Kanawinka Geotrial and other regional tourist attractions.
Birches on Bourkes is also available as a venue for interior or exterior wedding photos.
