Interaction with guests
We can give you advice on local attractions, tours and places to dine. More than happy to point out the farm walks and let you in on the history of our property and the local area.
Other things to note
Depending on the time of year and stock movements, you may be able to watch the shearers at shearing time or help out with watering trees on the riverbank as part of our revegetation project to reduce erosion and create a wildlife corridor. Make your mark and offset your carbon usage by planting a tree perhaps! Whatever the time of year, we are in a lovely part of the state, close to many attractions.
