At Diamond Forest Farm Stay we offer our guests a relaxing and peaceful holiday with four 2 bedroom cottages that sleep up to 5 guests in each, all overlooking a picturesque valley.

Wake up to the call of the birds, and early risers can take the opportunity to photograph the mist rising from the dams below in winter.

At Diamond Forest Farm Stay we have a farm environment consisting of approximately 100 animals that are friendly, love attention and food. Children can join us every morning to feed the animals or wander around at your leisure feeding them with your food scraps . Other activities include fishing, marroning, canoeing & bushwalking. We do have a fully stocked dam just in front of your cottage. It's just so relaxing to sit beside the dam and watch the wildlife or listen to the frogs sing their song of an evening.

Our property is adjacent to the lovely Diamond State Forest, giving you the opportunity to enjoy bush walking, bird watching or viewing the wildflowers in season. Also being state forest it is available for a large number of activities such as dog walking or bike riding. Take the opportunity to climb the Diamond Tree Lookout. There is certainly no shortage of great things to do and see, both on our property and nearby.

We also have 2 cottages that are pet friendly and your dog or cat can come on holidays with you as well. Please note these two cottages are in very high demand so be sure to check with us for availability first.

                                                        Took our 3 year old for a 3 day break, we really enjoyed the whole experience! Beautiful area, healthy, well taken care of animals, really comfortable beds and clean accommodation. Very hospitable and friendly hosts! I recommend this farm stay highly!

We are very happy you enjoyed your holiday & hope to see you back again soon. Our animals are always happy to see people as that means more food & attention, which they all love...

                                                        A very enjoyable stay for a three day break! Interactive animal feeding, comfy, clean cottages and the owners go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. Pemberton IGA, local shops and wineries are convenient as well, even though you feel far away from it all!
