About the property

Please visit the webpage for more details - type into your serch engine.


Terralong Farm is set on a 150 acre cattle farm perched high above Kangaroo Valley. With magnificent views north, east and west you will have one of the best seats in the valley.

The property has one large house with a swimming pool and lots of land to explore and have adventures in.



Welcome to Terrralong Farm

Terralong is just 4 minute drive from the shops and cafes of Kangaroo Valley village.

The house is set in a large, well established garden and looks north, east and west over the valley to the escarpments on the other sides. It is a spectacular spot.

In the cooler months a fog is formed on the valley floor, so the front lawn seems to border a white lake which stretches to far away cliffs.

It has been said that Terralong probably has the best positioned house in the whole valley ? It faces north-east and enjoys unsurpassed views; it is just above the fog line; it is at the top of a slope which catches and accentuates cooling breezes in summer, but is protected from southerly weather in winter; and still is near the village, which is hidden just 4 minutes away at the bottom of the hill behind a gum forest.

The cattle are silver Murray Greys, a breed noted for their gentle nature. But mothers with young calves should be given a fairly wide berth, as they can feel threatened. The herd is rotated through the paddocks, so please leave all gates as you find them.

About 50 acres of the property is bush, the rest green pastures. There are some great walks to the tops of the hills, and the views from all over the property are pretty special.

If you are not ones for walking around the 150 acres, you will find plenty of space to move around in at the house.

Terralong sleeps eight with a maximum of 10. The house has one king size en suite room, a double room and two single rooms. We also have a very large rumpus room that has a double bed for extras.

All linen is provided, towels are supplied to the main beds, and can be hired by others for an extra cost.

Food and good company being the only thing you will need to bring!


Kangaroos and wallabies usually come out to sun themselves in the late afternoon.

Wombats are common, especially at night.

The odd echidna can be seen padding around at any time.

Wedge-tailed eagles ride the thermals from the valley floor, circling at about the same level as the house. Flocks of black Major Mitchell cockatoos sometimes fill the trees.

With a well established garden and unsurpassed views over the valley. A beautiful shady tree to sit under and have breakfast or lunch, or even take a swim in the pool.

A BBQ is at the house for your use, with plenty of tables and chairs for your evening dinner watching the stars and moon at night.

Wow, wish we had those views at our house

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. Our dogs loved it. The views were exceptional. The house was spacious, clean and comfortable. The fireplace kept us cosy and warm when the rain fell at night. We hope to return - this is now our favourite place in Kangaroo Valley!

Well this was my 4 trip back to terralong and this time I shared with my family and close friends. They lived it just as much as I have on my 3 girls weekends away! The cows kept the kids amused, berry was great for some retail therapy and sitting out in the lawn as the sunsets sipping on a wine is heaven. Thanks for sharing your tranquility with us.

My family and I had an amazing time at Terralong. The property looks great on the website but is even better in person. The house location is very private with fantastic views from extensive lawn and gardens at the front of the house. We can't say enough about the location, pool and the sunset walks with the kids spotting kangaroos and wombats! The hosts were very easy to deal with and the house is well equipped (good kitchen, lots of space, chopped wood, kids games, books, CDs and linen). We highly recommend this place.

Terralong Farm provided great accommodation for six women. It is a large house, with plenty of beds and separate living spaces. The kitchen was very well equipped and great for entertaining. The views were absolutely outstanding. The combustion fire was a warm welcome on the cool nights, and we were fortunate enough that one of our group had a similar system at home so looked after the fire for us. We all enjoyed our weekend away.

Beautiful Kangaroo Valley

Kangaroo Valley is said to be one of the true 7 Valleys of the world! It is so, because it is surrounded by mountains. Terralong Farm sits high above this Valley, so you will have a commanding view of the Valley in all its glory. Over the years the Valley has grown to become a must stop place for people from all over the world. WHY? Well, it's so beautiful, full of wonder full things to do, and so close to the beaches of the South Coast that so many come to visit all year round. Kangaroo Valley can offer you some breathing space. You might like to hire a canoe and take off up the Kangaroo river, or paddle on Tallowa Dam. Or if riding a bike is more you thing, there are fantastic cycle paths through the village and beyond, stopping off for a delicious pie along the way. Perhaps you would rather a four legged type of ride, horse trails are dotted all over the Valley, you're sure to find the perfect one to fit your desires.

Don't worry about being hungry at the end of your full day, the Pub offers a great meal, with an amazing view, there are many wonderful restaurants and takeaway outlets in Kangaroo Valley, you're sure to find your perfect match.

Don't forget to check out the many shops for that special gift to take home as presents or a reminder of your time here.

The beaches of Jervis Bay, Seven Mile, Gerroa, Kiama and many more are within an hours drive, less if you're headed to Seven Mile!

And who can forget the wonderful Southern Highlands for a complete change of scene. Fantastic cafe's, shopping, in Bowral, Berrima, Bundanoon, Moss Vale the list goes on. Great wineries can be found here too if youre up for a taste of cold climate wines. All this surrounding the Valley, what a great base to have.

So much on offer, this is only a small part of what you yourself could discover all for yourself on your South Coast adventure!
