Introducing The Fleece Inn

The Fleece Inn, formerly known as the Golden Fleece Hotel, is located a very short walk from Lake Weeroona in Bendigo.

Constructed in 1860, The Fleece Inn's facade is a beautiful Victorian era two story building with a stunning verandah and Victorian sash windows. 


This beautiful grand old building has been completely transformed inside with modern self contained units,  whilst keeping the character of the building. 

The Fleece Inn has also been nominated and is a finalist in the Australian Disability Service Awards for Most Outstanding Accommodation Provider. 

What is STA?

Under the NDIS, STA replaces what used to be called respite for people with a disability.

STA is a support where someone with a disability has a short stay away from their home. This gives you the chance to try new things, make friends and learn skills. It also gives your family or carers a short break from their caring role.
