-----------------------------------------------

Sitting back and watching the world go by takes on a new meaning at a homestay with a difference in the beautiful Manning Valley.

You see, the world really is going by when you stay at Longview Farm – it’s a rotating house!

Built by owner Luke Everingham in 2006, the amazing structure completes a full 360-degree rotation in about 45minutes… enough time to finish a glass of chardonnay and refill.

It’s all controlled by a touchscreen in the dining room - and it’s not rocket science but, of course, the engineering behind it is.

Situated on a 40-acre property that’s also a Santa Gertrudis stud, the beautiful home offers glorious views over the Nowendoc River and surrounding countryside.

Kangaroos and wallabies are regular visitors, and the birdlife is wide and varied, from kookaburras and eagles to flocks of king parrots. Word also has it that koalas have been spotted on a neighbouring property just recently.

If you tire of simply watching the world go by, you can swim, fish or kayak the river (there’s a single and double kayak available for your use).

Inside, the home is beautifully presented with five king-sized bedrooms, four lounging areas, study and top-floor observatory.

The Kitchen is fully-equipped – you just need to bring your own food and refreshments (however, this can be arranged for you at extra cost).

There’s even an upright piano for a spot of singing during cozy nights in front of the fire.

Winter mornings are crisp and watching the mountains slowly appear from under their cloudy coverings for the perfect breakfast accompaniment.

And there’s no fear of missing a thing every bedroom has access t9 the verandah and those views, as do the lounge and dining areas. That’s the advantage of an octagonal design.

Best of all are the views from the observatory and the extended outside deck – no need to worry, it doesn't rotate so you’ll always know where you are!

Your days can be spent simply drinking in the fresh country air and surroundings, exploring the property, saying g’day to the stock, watching the wildlife, or venturing just a little further afield to nearby Dingo Forest, Wingham, Taree or even the coast. Diamond and Blackhead beaches are only an hour’s drive away.

All this and as much peace and quiet as you can take. Now that really is a holiday!

Mesmerising and great accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This is the one of the best holiday/getaway we had in last 10 years. As usual 4 (3 families less this year for us though) of our family/friends set out on a pre-Christmas journey to explore country NSW and for 2017 we chose a farm stay at World Famous Rotating house. The property in 40 Acre land is surrounded by spectacular and serene mountains and beautiful manning river. What a fantabulous place!!! Whole years work stress was relieved in 5 days.

It was a divine and peaceful for all our family and friends and kids loved this place. Entire group went Kayaking in the river that flows beside the Rotating House -

thanks to caretakers. We spent more than 3 hours in Kayaks and it was never enough.

Dear Property owners and caretakers, thanks you for making our stay so memorable...

Wishing you all a prosperous and great New Year 2018.

Best Regards

Vinod

We will be back for SURE!!!

Wow! Just Wow!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful peaceful spot for a well needed rest . We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Rotating House . Everything we needed was at our fingertips. Beds were very comfy & my wife absolutely loved the Daybed on the decking. The mood lighting in the bathroom is an added bonus ! We would love to visit again ! Great for family gatherings.

Everything you need and more..

  • 5 of 5

This place is like a unique, boutique hotel in the middle of the Australian countryside. Great time of year to go, being able to swim in the river to cool off during warm Spring days and curl up by the fire with a blanket and a bottle of red in the evenings. Seriously worth the splashing of cash and treating yourself to a quiet weekend out of the city!

Excellent property, relaxing views

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful property, was so relaxing and the views are amazing. The care takers of the property are such beautiful people, they helped us get comfy. The children loved the animals on property especially the horses. It was cold when we were there but the life saver of all is that fire place and the electric blankets on the bed. we did manage to go kaiking in the river it was so peaceful and beautiful. The whole property is kids safe and bonus is that the property had everything u can think of first aid kit which made us also feel a lot safer incase of forbidden accidents. Overall we were 9 adults and 7 children and all were comfortable and happy the house was so big and never did we feel over crowded. Will stay here again and recommend everyone to come here for a home away stay.

Simply Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Luke and Leanne for your kindness and generosity in allowing us to stay in your beautiful home over the past few days. We had an absolutely amazing time and it is something that will remain etched in our hearts and memories forever.

Every aspect of the home was truly wonderful, from the spacious kitchen, lounge and dining area, the cosiness of the fireplace, the well-appointed bedrooms, the viewing room upstairs which the kids really enjoyed and spent a lot of their time in and of course the rotating of the house which contributed to the uniqueness and boundless pleasure of our stay.

Without doubt the river was a massive selling point, really incredible and provided the backdrop for many a sunset beverage. The greenery, the mountains, the thunder of stampeding cattle, stories by campfire, the rain at night, children filling the house with laughter...all of nature at its's very finest. We simply could not get enough of this stunning and magical place!!

Again, we just can't thank you enough and honestly cannot wait to get back and visit this beautiful nirvana once again. Look forward to making our way back soon and we'll definitely be referring family and friends to this fantastic part of the world and your gorgeous home. Simply amazing!!

ELLENBOROUGH FALLS

At 200 metres, Ellenborough Falls is one of the longest single drop waterfalls in the Southern Hemisphere and one of the Manning Valley’s biggest natural attractions. If you’re coming to the area, visiting this natural beauty is a must-do!

Admire the natural beauty from the viewing platform at the top, or for the more adventurous, take the 641 timber steps to the bottom of the valley where you’ll get so close you’ll feel the spray and hear the roar of the falls. Allow 10 minutes or one hour.

If you’ve worked up a hunger after exploring the area, visit the kiosk that is open Friday, Saturday & Sunday between 10am and 4pm and everyday during school holidays. They sell fresh baked bread at the kiosk, savoury pies, sausage rolls and vegetarian pasties as well as yummy cakes, hand pressed coffee and lots of delicious specials.

WINGHAM - OUR LOCAL TOWN

A ten-minute drive west of Taree is the historic town of Wingham.

Settled in 1853 on the banks of the Manning River, this unique township offers visitors the opportunity to step back in time. Its rich heritage is evident in the many National Trust listed Federation buildings which surround the town.

From the second you drive past the town entry sign on Wingham road, you enter the history of the Manning. To the left is Chrissy Gollan Park, originally the site of Chinese market gardens and now an open green space for meeting friends, throwing a ball around, having a picnic or just relaxing under the shade of a tree.

Spend some time at the Historical Museum, which is open 7 days and showcases a vast collection of interesting memorabilia. Shop at the gorgeous boutique stores and eat at one of the local cafes, where you can savour the flavours of fresh local produce.

Down by the river’s edge you will discover Wingham Brush, a nature reserve with a difference. Covering 10 hectares of subtropical floodplain rainforest, it is one of only a few remnants of this rare rainforest type in Australia. Giant Moreton Bay figs tower over a gently winding boardwalk, where you will discover a large colony of endangered grey-headed flying foxes.

The weekends in Wingham are filled with colourful markets and the chance for you to purchase fresh, locally grown produce, hand crafted gifts, clothes, candles and more!

Each October, splendid sounds mingle with the heritage surroundings as the Wingham Akoostik Festival kicks into action. Music lovers are drawn to town for three days of live entertainment, workshops and quality food and market stalls.
