A region to indulge in


Grayling’s Gift acts as the ideal home base to explore Ballarat and the Pyrenees Shire.

While the space itself has been designed to provide guests with the ultimate dose of relaxation and restoration, the surrounding region is also a treasure trove filled with rich offerings to round off one’s getaway. Whether you’re an avid foodie, a history buff, a vino lover or an adventurer, Ballarat and the Pyrenees have an array of experiences to enhance your stay and leave you feeling fulfilled and rejuvenated.

The region’s calendar is also jam-packed with high-calibre, award-winning events suited to all ages and tastes. So whenever you decide to visit us, you can rest assured there will be plenty to see, do and discover in and around Grayling’s Gift.


Rolling hills, ironbark forests, sprawling vineyards, and scenic picnic spots – the Pyrenees is the perfect place to relish in nature’s offerings.

During your Grayling’s stay, make sure you spend a day pottering around the region in exploration. Take a trek or two through the lush Pyrenees State Forest; venture along the Beeripmo Walk and explore the towering rainforests, hidden waterfalls and fern-filled gullies; find your spot on the banks of the Avoca River or Lake Beaufort for a spring picnic or summer soiree; or ride around one of the townships admiring the historic wonders that abound.

Renowned as a wine region, the Pyrenees is also home to several wineries, many of which are highly-acclaimed and recognised in the James Halliday Australian Wine Companion. Hop from cellar door to cellar door, marvel at the panoramic views looking out upon the vineyards, indulge in cheese boards and top drops, then make your way back to home base to while the evening away, vino in-hand.

Immerse yourself in the picturesque surrounds of the Pyrenees Region as you discover a calm you never knew existed at Grayling’s Gift.
