Why Frank Barker chose Kangaroo Valley
My wife, Cathy, and I fell in love with Kangaroo Valley together, back in 1992. We stayed here many times before the big move with our family. Every time we had a holiday here we would get depressed when we had to leave to go back to the big smoke!
The solution: Stay and Live in paradise :)
Now we are priveliged to live and raise our children in the place we truly love!
What makes this farmhouse unique
Minimbah Farm is unique for so many reasons:
It is 150 acres of beautiful scenic farmland, featuring it’s own flowing creek, amazing views with almost endless grass paddocks backing onto lush rainforest. Being a fully operational beef cattle property also with goats, alpacas, horses, chickens, peacocks and abundant wildlife, Minimbah Farm is one of the most favoured of Farm Stays on the South Coast of NSW.
