HIDDEN GEM IS A PRIVATE RESORT
LOCALS have done their best to keep Ulupna for themselves but are fighting a losing battle, with the area being recognised as a hidden gem of the Murray River region.
The inland island, bordered by the Murray River and Ulupna Creek, is known for its sandy beaches, water skiing, fishing and native wildlife, in particular the many koalas.
Parrearra, with its Federation style homestead on 40.7ha, is in this unique area, and just a three-hour drive from Melbourne.
A meandering driveway with a lagoon and majestic red gum backdrop leads to the solid brick house surrounded by landscaped gardens.
The gardens, walkways, swimming pool and Murray River less than 100m away beyond the river bushland create a holiday resort feel.
The house, built in 1983, has four bedrooms, including the main with a walk-through robe to the ensuite. There’s also a formal dining room, formal lounge room with an open fireplace, a study, country style kitchen, a meals and family area, and spa in main bathroom.
