They are believed to have suffered gunshot wounds to the head and chest.
Homicide detectives are investigating the incident, which has rocked the small farming community of Natte Yallock, 100 kilometres north of Ballarat.
A police source told the Herald Sun the double fatality was a possible murder-suicide.
Relative Alan Streeter said the family were unsure last night how the brothers had died.
Distraught family members briefly visited the grim scene and were said to be inconsolable.
The deaths happened 1 kilometre along Streeters Lane, believed to be the home of John Streeter.
Douglas is thought to have lived in nearby Avoca, about 17 kilometres south of Natte Yallock.
