Our Community

Coleraine and Casterton

Beautiful South West Victoria!  An hour from both the magnificent beaches at Warrnambool, Port Fairy and Portland and from South Australia’s second largest city, Mount Gambier, with its stunning Blue Lake. If you are interested in food and wine, you can’t go past the renowned Coonawarra region a short drive away.

Our welcoming communities each have primary schools, with secondary schooling options available in Casterton or nearby Hamilton. Both towns have supermarkets for the essentials.

A range of active sporting clubs and activities are available in both towns (football, netball, tennis, hockey, cricket, lawn bowls, golf, croquet, squash, badminton).  Each town also has a large outdoor swimming pool for those long, blissful summer days, with indoor pool facilities in nearby Hamilton.

Walking tracks are a feature in each township, with great fishing in the nearby Glenelg River. Just a stone’s throw away you’ll find the magnificent Wannon and Nigretta waterfalls. For the more adventurous, stunning hiking and adventure options are just a short drive away in the world-renowned Grampians National Park.

There’s a variety of delicious food to be found at local eateries across both towns, with a mixture of country style pubs and cafes.

Come and stay with us and enjoy the stunning scenery, friendly people and huge range of outdoor and leisure activities available in our local community.
