You’re not dreaming: rent the Kerrigans’ home
IT’S one of Australia’s best-loved films, and now The Kerrigans’ Boonie Doon holiday house from the 1997 movie The Castle is available to rent.
The Castle in Bonnie Doon in regional Victoria is a holiday destination to rival all others, providing travellers with the opportunity to capture memories to take “straight to the pool room”.
The experience will have you exclaiming how’s the serenity?” in no time.
Cook up some rissoles or sponge cake in the kitchen as the family settles in around the refurbished ’60s retro dining table.
Or, better yet, head to Lake Eildon and cast a line in search of trout, redfin or carp – a winning combination for those who own a boat with a two-stroke engine that can cruise on full throttle.
The Castle in Bonnie Doon sleeps up to six guests in the house with an extra room for additional guests in the pool room.
It also includes a front verandah with a barbecue, which is the perfect place to soak up the serenity, a fireplace where you can sit around with a good mug, and, of course, follow the gravel path and it will take you straight to the best room in the house, the pool room.
