From there it is possible to walk round the rim or through a lava swamp area. I think we drove through at least 7 times as well as doing walks as there was always something to see. Apart from the ever present kangaroos, emus and koalas there were birds and we even saw a small turtle laying eggs.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBoroka Downs Halls Gap
We stayed several nights in the secluded cottage at Boroka Downs. The cottage contains everything you can think and is nicely decorated. It was great to see the kangaroos hopping by while sitting outside and enjoyed the wildlife tour through the estate that was offered. Bob and Stephanie were quite friendly and we were happy to find internet available in the cottage. Overall a fabulous experience!
