Come and experience country life on our 130 acre property, surrounded by bushland, walking tracks, paddocks, farm animals, wild native animals and our commercial aquaponics system, where we produce the freshest herbs and greens you will ever taste!
Located in the Southern Highlands of NSW, each season brings new natural beauty. Each season needs to be experienced. From snow covered landscapes, to bursting blooms, vibrant coloured leaves and hot Aussie summers! Unique experiences await you.
As an operating farm, you are welcome to assist with some of the tasks around the property. From feeding the animals, rounding them up, learning how to build a farm fence, planting seedlings in our greenhouse, harvesting our herbs and greens, or maybe searching for a spectacular protea in our large protea garden.
Or, sit back and relax. A picnic around Wellspring Dam and garden, a walk around the property, rest on the rear verandah of the cottage, or take in the local attractions.
Located privately on our property, you will immediately feel at home and experience a complete sense of calmness and relaxation once you arrive at the cottage.
A lovely red cedar cottage, completely renovated internally, with a new kitchen, new 1.5 bathrooms (one full and a half bathroom), lounge room.... completely new! You will not be disappointed.
There are 4 bedroom areas. Main bedroom with a queen sized bed, the second room with a double bed, with a single bunk bed above and also a pull out trundle bed.
Upstairs there is a loft area with two bedroom areas, each area has two single beds. A great retreat for 4 kids (or 4 adults).
There is a large front and rear verandah, the rear verandah overlooking a very private back yard, with a large solid timber table for 12 people. Plenty of lights and a heater outside too.
The lounge room is a cosy spot, with a wood heater, TV (Foxtel) a few lounges, where you can kick back and relax.
The bathroom has a bath/shower/spa..... You will love this bathroom!
What to do when you are here?
As with any holiday, it's really up to you how much or how little you do.
Families with kids will want to experience most of what is on offer.
Couples may want an intimate private getaway, go for walks, maybe a picnic.
So here are a few ideas for you.
Early morning, frost is still on the ground, and the animals are already stirring waiting to be fed! So it's up and out to the paddock to feed the horses, sheep, alpacas and goats! They will be your best friends while you are here.
Boots on, orientation map out, bottled water in your back pack, and you are off for a 10km bushwalk over to the gorge, through it if you are keen, and back again. Certainly only for the experienced bush walker that has prepared!
Packed picnic, a bottle of local Pinot Noir, cheese, crackers and a lunch hamper. You walk down to Wellspring Dam which is a dam that is fed by a very deep well in the centre of it. The water is crystal clear! We have added many beautiful trees around the dam and you can sit and take in the view. A beautiful setting for a couple!
Feeling game? Table tennis, pool, Kelly pool, darts.... you head down to the mancave (well, games room) and have fun with the whole family. Big screen TV with the footy on.... or not! (Only a short 5 minute walk from the cottage, or 1 minute drive).
Gym junky? Head down to the mancave and use the well equipped gym. Free weights, and a gym machine. Then a 4km jog around the property, back to the cottage. Sit on the back deck with a nice cold bottle of water, and you are ready to tackle the day!
Feeling green today!? Work clothes on, work boots on and you're off to the greenhouse. 600 Zipgrow towers full of herbs and greens. The smell is amazing. Help plant a few herbs and greens, pick a few to use for your dinner tonight. Feed the silver perch fish. Maybe catch a silver perch for dinner tonight!!! You will be very satisfied helping out in the greenhouse.
Darkness approaches, and the night sky greets you! Stars everywhere. Soon, our two large telescopes will be housed on our observatory where you can view the heavens, take astrophotography, chat about the cosmos.
Got a big group coming.... pull out the spit and crank up the fire... we are having a pig on the spit tonight!! Keeping an eye on the progress of the cooking during the day, over a beer or two!! Our spit can accommodate a large lamb/pig or side of beef.
The kids can hear the tractor coming!!! Time for a hay ride! We have a large farm tractor and a trailer we fill with hay to take the kids (and adults) for a hay ride around the property.
Sit around the bonfire, roasting marshmallows, telling a few stories, play the guitar and sing a few songs!! Nothing beats a great night under the stars sitting around a large camp fire!!
