Wappan Station accommodations had recently ramped up their cottage accommodation facilities in a move to attract more tourists this summer, now that the lake is finally full again after almost 15 years of drought.

“The cottages have been recently refurbished and are ready for your perfect holiday, but make sure you book early as they are filling up fast,” the accommodations representative said. One of the largest sheep stations located near Mansfield, Victoria, the Wappan Station cottages are situated close to the water’s edge, and provide idyllic accommodation for families and large groups that wish to have a summer holiday near the lake.

These farmstay cottages and shearers’ quarters are on a large sheep farm which is right on the shores of Lake Eildon, a popular tourist destination for holidays. It offers splendid views of the High Country, Mount Buller, and the renowned lake.

With the lake now restored to its pristine state, Wappan Station administrators are positive that “more people are going to opt for the unique holiday experience that only (our) farm stay cottages can provide. There is access for boats to launch into the lake and it is a perfect spot for fishing, swimming and other popular water sports.”

“This,” the owner enthused, “should put us in the running for the region’s top summer spots – and we have made preparations for just such a likely turn – having recently redone and refurbished the cottages to make our visitors’ stay all the more enchanting and memorable.”

Wappan Farm accommodation features 10,000 scenic acres, running 16,000 merino sheep. It can house large groups of visitors who would like to experience farm stay accommodations in shearers’ quarters and observe farming activities. The farm operates on weekdays year round and there is plenty to see and do, with shearing a common favorite among young and adult visitors alike. “With these recent developments, we might just make it as a top family summer holiday spot,” the representative concluded.
