We are very excited to say the construction is complete for the NEW Settlers Stage, with the asphalt & line marking recently finished and also passing the Council inspection. With over half of this stage sold or under offer we can’t wait for the future homes to begin construction soon in this stage and the neighbourhood begin to take shape.

This isn’t the only news here at Ploughmans Arms, there are many homes under construction in our existing streets and a number of people have recently moved into their beautiful homes as well. Did you know we only release a small percentage for investment purposes of which have already sold, that means the majority of homes are owner occupied here at Ploughmans. With almost 60 households now being lived in and at least another 54 currently under construction, it is easy to say our streets are transforming into the special neighbourhood and community that we always hoped and planned for.

With the Settlers Stage finished construction, we anticipate all lots in this stage to be Titled in May 2019.

Wow it really is exciting times here at Ploughmans Arms! Here is a few quick snaps of the future Marrubak Stage which is getting very close to completion. We know there are a couple of future home owners looking forward to be able to walk on their street and we are glad to say this won’t be far away with the homesites getting pegged and asphalt just around the corner!

Plus there is over 15 homes under construction and a number recently completed! So many lovely people to welcome to the Ploughmans Community! And of course the brand new Bonshaw Early Learning Centre is looking great with landscaping underway and will be opening their doors in the near future! Did we mention the wetlands is under construction too! What can we say Ploughmans really is a place to LIVE ENJOY PLAY and EXPLORE.


This 15 second commercial turned out fantastic! A big thank you to all the people living here at Ploughmans Arms that put their hands up to feature in this footage.

The Ballarat Railway Station, just a 12 minute drive away is about to be transformed with a $25 Million investment from the Victorian Government, we think this is Fantastic! Stage 1 construction is expected to begin as soon as July/August 2017 with a new two-level commuter car park and a portion of the access road. These works are expected to be completed in late 2017.

And Stage 2 works are expected to begin in early 2018 involving the remediation and refurbishment of the Goods Shed, construction of the hotel and delivery of the public plaza and remaining transport improvements.
