About Sam & Kate
We are are a family of 5 who love the outdoors and the adventures and memories we have created in them. Being parents of 3 active boys Darlington Grove has allowed us to watch them flourish away from the internet and technology. We now enjoy our time together caring for the animals in this quiet, peaceful setting.
Sam & Kate purchased this Farmhouse in 2017
Why Sam & Kate chose Darlington
This property is very special! 100 acres in the famous Lost World Valley. The dramatic view of the surrounding mountains and the Albert River running through it deliver everything you could dream of for the perfect hobby farm.

Amazing back to nature retreat
We stayed here for 2 nights (not long enough!) and found the property well equipped and comfortable. Everything from initial contact with the owners to questions during our stay were answered rapidly and they were very helpful. The kids loved helping out with the farm animals especially the piglets and calves. We really enjoyed seeing the wallabies and many wild birds. There’s so much to do around here we barely scratched the surface but we’d love to return sometime. Highly recommended for some quality time away from it all in beautiful surroundings.
Wonderful family experience
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We loved the interaction with the animals. We were very lucky that lambs had just been born and there were two young calves and a piglet. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. The property is easy to find, and is close to Lamington National Park. Sam, Kate and their children were very friendly and helpful. They are terrific hosts. We look forward to our next visit.
Enjoyed a few nights away with our two young kids. They loved the open space & the animals.
Accommodation is nice and well equipped.
Thanks for your stay. We are so happy you enjoyed the open space and the Dairy building. The week you left we welcomed 3 new lambs and two little orphan steers so the farm is always evolving. We hope to see you guys again in the future.
Delightful country getaway
We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Darlington Grove. Thank you Sam and Kate for sharing this piece of country paradise with us. It made a for a memorable getaway. The accomodation is a delight; thoughtfully furnished and lovely to relax into. We also enjoyed the inside/outside feel of the kitchen and living space: with plenty of room to relax and take in the changing vistas throughout the day and soak up the dazzling constellations at night. It also a great base to explore the Scenic Rim area. Thank you for your suggestions for places to visit!
Just what we needed!
What a beautiful property! We loved disconnecting for a few days, being involved in helping with the animals and enjoying what the area has to offer. Highly recommend.
Rustic farm stay
A fantastic farm stay experience with lovely hosts
Thanks David, we loved having you and your family at the farm.
Our farm is located in a prime position to access many of the festivities of the Scenic Rim Food and Wine Festival. The actual street it is located on has several properties involved with the scenic rim food and wine festival.
In the area there is also an awesome cooking school, bush walks, hidden water holes, and we are a short and scenic drive from a couple of local cafes that sell local produce from the area. The owners Kate and Sam can fill you in on all the secret and not so secret attractions they have found in the area!!!
