Ballarat House – Wheel of Fortune Suite
This huge suite was named after a massive gold mine also situated on the farm.

This mine was originally hand dug and had many tunnels running from it like spokes in a wheel, which was excavated by miners during the gold rush. It is now filled with water and can be fished for trout, or used as a canoeing venue.

The Wheel of Fortune Suite has its own private carport and foyer entrance.

The super king size bed rests on a raised platform, there is also a kitchenette, and bathroom with heated floor.
