Your own private accommodation in Battunga Cottages – Galah, is in the tiny hamlet of Watervale, close to Clare, surrounded by gently undulating countryside and vineyards at this magnificently curated B&B.

You’ll awaken to a gentle chorus of magpies, galahs and kookaburras whilst diving into your farmhouse breakfast basket that’s laden with locally sourced produce. Given the heritage of this region, you won’t go hungry or thirsty and you’ll adore waking up to freshly baked bread, fresh eggs from the Battunga hens, bacon from the local butcher, and a selection of cereals, juice and spreads. Kerry and Mark provide full breakfast provisions for each night of your stay. And if you have a dietary needs, just let them know in advance.

Battunga Cottages are a stone’s throw away, located in nearby Watervale, 15Kms south of Clare.

Sumptuous bedrooms and a cheering roaring fire through the cool season lends Battunga Cottages – Galah as a ideal year round destination.

Follow the Reisling Trail which Clare is renowned for, and soak in the panorama of one of the best bike trails in South Australia. Explore the many gourmet food trails too and sit back and relax on your private verandah under the stars with a drop of magnificent local wine. Watch the sun set over the vineyards.

We also hear that the multi-award winning Watervale Hotel that dishes up Clare’s finest produce and stunning local wines is minutes away and is an absolute must! Ask Kerry about mid-week “KEEP YOUR GIN UP” tours while you’re there.
