Accommodation at Typo Station

An historic former cattle property, Typo Station is located in the picturesque King Valley, with creek frontage and expansive green open spaces. Only 45 minutes from Wangaratta, Typo Station has proximity to a regional centre but feels a world away from everyday life.

The Station can sleep up to 40 people, twenty in our new cabin which contains 4 bunk rooms sleeping four or six people, and twenty in bunks in our authentic and rustic open-space slab hut. The venue is ideal for your next family and friends get away or discreet conference or wedding. The station includes the stunning rustic charm of our Woolshed, with large open space, heating and commercial kitchen. The Woolshed will enhance the experience of any gathering with its ability to open out to nature with full retracting glass doors or stay cozy with local wine beside the log fire heater.

A gourmet’s paradise, the King Valley offers farm gate produce from olives to mustards, wines to chocolates and is home to the iconic Brown Brothers’ Epicurean Centre. The natural delights of Lake William Hovell & Power’s Lookout will leave you in awe before stepping off to the nearby ski fields, historic goldfields, the watersports playground Bonnie Doon, or Victoria’s Murray riviera. If it’s action, adventure, serenity, history or tasty delights that you’re after, the King Valley is the place to start.
