About Sharee Darmody

We are a family run Business. Our 2500 acre property runs Merino Sheep for Wool and cross bred sheep for meat. We decided to start up our farm stay so other families could experience the beauty, space and peace of country life. We think it is improtant for everyone especially children to experience a little bit of the great Australian Country life.

My husband and I do work 7 days a week as is the normal in the country, but love what we do.

I also have a fitness business where I run Pilates classes and walking groups.

We like to keep active and healthy and share a littlre bit of what we have here.

Why Sharee Darmody chose Boorowa

Our property has amazing views from every room in the house.

You will be staying on a real Austalian sheep working property that has been in the Darmody family for over 50 years.

At certain times of the year you may be lucky enough to experience shearing, or lambing

We are close to our beautiful country town of Boorowa, where you can stroll along the river walk, or have a great cup of coffee at our local coffee shops.

Wantana Cottage Farm Stay

North Sydney, Australia

We wanted space and that is what we got :)

  • 5 of 5

Our Wantana Farm stay was exactly the experience we wanted ... a rustic cottage surrounded by sheep and paddocks. The facilities were ideal for our family with comfortable beds, plenty of room, all the utensils and services. Our inner city friends and neighbors were envious! Looking forward to our next visit.

Dear Sharee and Bill,

THANK YOU for your thoughtfulness

- As we were arriving late at night. You thoughtfully turn on the light to ensure we could find the place. As we walk into the house, it was clean, tidy and have everything we need.

THANK YOU for your generousity

- You generously provide us a breakfast hamper with freshly baked wholemeal bread. We also found complimentary mineral water, fresh milk, delicious bacon, sausages and farm eggs in the fridge. That's the best complimentary breakfast we have received from a stay. You are not required to give all that, but you did so to make sure we have the best experience of your lovely cottage.

THANK YOU for sharing the beautiful scenery -

- The cottage was built on a place where the view surrounding it was simply spectacular! It was so relaxing sitting on the outdoor table and enjoy the beautiful sunset.

THANK YOU for being friendly

- You came to say hi even with your busy schedule and took us around. We were so blessed by the sheep shearing tour and learn a lot about sheep and farmer's 'stock market' from you.

THANK YOU for being awesome!

- We appreciate and truly pray that your farm will always so fruitful and blessed all year round.

Peace & Tranquility Awesome Surrounds

  • 4 of 5

A lovely clean cottage where you can easily make yourself at home.

Beautiful rolling hill side country away from the hussle and bustle of city life.

A great place to chill out, get away from technology (if you like) and just stroll around the magnificent country and town. Picture perfect
