We hope you enjoy the grounds during your stay. You are free to roam the 16 acres of paddocks, orchards and gardens.

Enjoy a picnic and a game of cricket or boules on the paddock, a cheese platter and drinks on the verandah, or curl up with a book in front of the fire. There’s lots of choices. We can provide what you need. Just let us know what you would like.

We keep a choice of local beer, wine and cider as well as all the staples for a picnic lunch, cheese platter and lots more. The cost of food and drink can be simply added to your account.

Make friends with our ducks, geese, Mr Darcy, the rooster and his ladies, and our pet sheep, Minty, Stuart & Lolly.

There are a few thousand bees in a couple of hives towards the back of the property. Take care not to disturb them and they won’t bother you. Wander the orchard (cherries, apples, pears and nectarines mostly) and eat freely whatever is ripe.

We have seen Platypus on the property in the gullies and ponds.

They are quite secretive little things and so a sighting is a rare and fleeting treat worthy of celebration.  Similarly, the nocturnal animals such as spotted quolls, wallabies and possums also make themselves scarce when they think you may be looking.

You will see lots of birds around the property. There are many varieties of parrots, beautiful black cockatoos and many varieties of wrens. Let us know what you see. You may surprise wallabies in the early morning or afternoon.

Lots of space to move!

We have no electricity wires over our paddocks so it is perfect for flying model aircraft and kite flying when the wind blows. Our large back dam is also great for remote control boating.

Please be aware that our three dams provide potential danger for small children but are great for older children for frog catching and general mucking around ALWAYS under adult supervision so they don’t get into strife.
