Comfortable but old

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed our stay . Made to feel welcome . Warm fire . Comfortable beds. Lounge needs better furniture. Toilet out on back porch not that great in winter but clean. Bathroom shower needs updating so water doesn't run over floor.

What a lovely place

  • 5 of 5

The Wombalano was the perfect stopover while we travelled from Adelaide to Melbourne. We stayed for 2 nights which gave us a full day to explore the area around Yuulong/Johanna (which is worth exploring). It was rainy and chilly but we didn't mind as there was a fireplace in the living room. The house is furnished very well, simple and charming, we loved it. We will be back!

The perfect farm stay

  • 5 of 5

The most perfect family holiday. Our kids loved the sheep and Glen the great host/farmer introduced one of his horses. Perfect views of the coast line as well. We will be coming again
