We had a wonderful stay. The staff were excellent (friendly and helpful), the farm was well maintained (neat and tidy), and the accommodation was just right (clean and modern with a great air-conditioner). There are lovely places around the farm where they have made seats where you can sit and enjoy the fresh country air and beautiful surroundings. We enjoyed...

What a truly wonderful place to enjoy precious time with Family. So much to do and such a beautifully maintained homestead - a real credit to Doug, Pam and Bec, who made us feel very welcomed and comfortable. The Grandkids really enjoyed the animal feeding - went back each morning - thank you to Kaine for his very informative sessions...

To enjoy the farmstay, please set the expectation straight: it is a rural place, thus in summer, thus insects were everywhere. No mosquitoes and cockroaches though. The windows have flyscreens, so it is the doors you need to close behind you. And if you want to do outdoor BBQ, don't do that at dinner. Light attract insects, and ... you...

The well maintained ECO Cabin just up the road from the main property was just perfect for our families to chill out together and take in the beauty of the surroundings. With a canopy of a million stars and the song of countless cicadas, the nights were memorable too. There were so many options of things to do, every member...

My family of 6 adults and 2 children stayed for 2 nights in Dec 2016. Had a great time cooking meals, enjoying the scenery and experiencing the nature city dwellers missed. Driving from Goldcoast to the property is fairly easy.

My family stayed for 3D2N in Nov 2016. We had a wonderful time. My 3 kids loved feeding the animals, especially the chickens and goats. Rare experience for city kids. We had a great time on the tractor, with roping and throwing the boomerangs. Bec was very friendly and a great host. The Maroon Room we stayed in is clean...

We stayed in the self contained cabin for 4 nights. The accomodation was lovely, very clean, plenty of cooking equipment in the kitchen and lovely views. The kids (aged 2 and 4) had a fantastic time feeding the animals and going on some pony rides and the tractor ride. The staff were all very friendly and helpful.
