The Mallee region of north-west Victoria is a unique semi-arid environment and a hotspot for birds! Add to this the stunning sunsets and starry night skies, it’s wonderfully relaxing and you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to adventures and photography.

We look forward to helping you explore the Mallee, so don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss your plans. We’re happy to be flexible to help you get what you want from your visit.

To learn more about us you can find our photography, blogs and more at Outside Four Walls.



Our self-contained studio flat and converted bus are set amongst peaceful Mallee bushland that is thriving with birdlife.

“Louise and Michael have a beautiful property to visit for all things Mallee; birds, animals, vegetation and ecology. As a bird photographer I found their property to be a perfect base and place to stay for easy access to the broader Mallee region and the associated national parks (Hattah-Kulkyne, Murray Sunset and Wyperfeld) and reserves (Bronzewing, Wathe, Annuello and Lake Tyrrell). Their property is also fantastic for seeing birds and photographing them, with several water points and hides setup for controlled photography. My visits have realised dozens of species, with an exciting lifer of seeing and photographing the Purple-gaped Honeyeater. I would recommend their property as the number 1 place to visit for birders and photographers in the Mallee.”
