We would like to welcome you to our historic farm on the southern edge of the Grampians National Park. We are forth generation farmers who crop and grow lambs for the market.
The farm has magestic 6-800 year old red gum trees and beautiful views and walks. Our historic blue-stone shearing shed was built in 1864 and still in use today.
We are situated 5 minutes from Cavendish with it's Bridge Cafe and the Bunyip Hotel with its bespoke brewed beer and distilled whiskey and dinners 3 nights a week. Dunkeld, with the infamous Royal Mail Hotel is just 20 minutes away and 25 minutes from Hamilton with Bistros and all the supermarkets.
The farm is just 10 minutes from the edge of the Grampians National Park. There is a wonderful circuit you can drive for a day trip with walks along the way, calling in to wildflowers and waterfalls on the way.It is just over an hour to the coast, Portland, Port Fairy or Warrnambool. Or maybe you will just curl up on the leather lounge and read a book.
