Just 1 minute off the Pacific Highway in the Forster area, this NSW Tourism award-winning farm is open for visitors wanting to stretch their legs, mind, smile and tastebuds! Not a theme park, but a small family farm - visit the farmgate shop (built in a recycled shipping container) to stock up on raw honey, delicious sauces, chilli honey, vanilla honey as well as farm-made beeswax balms, soaps and teas, eggs, garlic, rosellas (native hibiscus) and more. Or pay to enter the farm to see a real, sustainable farm in operation. ($10 child, $12.50 conc, $15 adult). Home to a menagerie of friendly animals; an inspirational and educational 5 acre garden full of useful plants (edible, medicinal, dyes, beverages, building materials etc); and a Native Australian Bee Sanctuary complete with "Bee Motel"(where you'll learn about Australia's 1600 species of bee including some very special stingless ones who make a divine and rare honey). The farm also has a display of solar ovens and solar kettles, including the largest solar oven in Australia which cooks up delicious treats. This is a small family farm, so don't come expecting the Hunter Valley Gardens, but it's a special place doing special things! The farm and farmgate shop are open 8.30am-2.30pm (with tours at 10am, 11.30am & 1pm), Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday & Tuesday (closed Wed & Thu). Open every day in school holidays. Also available for bus group tours and morning teas. 1hr south of Port Macquarie (20 min north of Buladelah) take the Nabiac exit and travel just 1 minute west on Wallanbah Rd. Enter via Tenants Rd.

Had a great few hours petting the animals and learning about the bee's , farm animals and plants. My kids loved it and I can't wait to chase up some of the herbs we tasted and smelt on the tour. We'll worth a visit.

Hey, thanks so much for visiting! Some of the top plants we recommend: Brahmi (brain health), Lemon balm (gorgeous tea, great for bees & just smelling it make you feel good!), Turmeric (all round immune booster), Stevia (the sugar herb), Rose geranium (tea + insect repellent), Tulsi/Holy Basil (for wellness and it smells divine!), Rosella (tea and jam and cordial)....

I went with my 11 year old daughter on the 9 January 2015. We had honey tasting, a tour of the gardens, fed the animals, went on the obstacle course and would have milked the goat but my daughter was tired by then. It's a fantastic place for adults and kids to spend the day. We'll definitely be back when... More

We were a little hesitant when we pulled up into the empty car park this morning. I am still left to wonder why this gem is not frequented by the hoards. I had assumed that we would look at a few farm animals and try some honey. Did I underestimate the experience on offer. We were fortunate enough to be... More

We arrived a little late for a full tour so we had one of the girls show us around. The animals are very cute and very well looked after. We also got to try some tea and honey. This is a fun stop!
