We stayed at Macka's for a couple of nights and had great fun. The lodge was very comfortable with a nice fireplace. My 5 year old son had an awesome time at the farm with all animals around and especially the very loving dogs while were so playful. Macka and Trudi were very kind hosts indeed and made our stay...

Something wonderful about being on a working farm. Fantastic location. Kids are loving it, keep telling me it is 'very homely'. They are in love with the young animals. We are in the big house so have everything we need and are toasty and warm.

We stayed at the Farmhouse with another family for a night. It was comfortable and spacious, and the kitchen was well-equipped. As we only stayed for 1 night, only 1 bathroom and a separate toilet were availed to us so the 8 of us had to take turns. Soap was not provided, and you have to bring your own food.... More

Spent 3 nights in Lodge 2 with our 2 boys, 2 and 4. They loved watching Macka milk the cows and walking around to feed all the animals. We were lucky to see piglets born. Hosts are very friendly and our 4 year old didn't want to leave.

We stayed at the farm for one night with our five-year-old daughter. We were very excited about this opportunity to stay at an Aussie farm doing all kinds of farm activities, however, we were a little bit disappointed. The "farm activiteis" in the morning are rather quick and very simple, which includes feeding milk to baby cows, and a couple... More

Macka is up by 5am and milks his herd of cows around 6am and 4.30pm. And sometimes doesn't finish till 7pm. So do excuse the very busy farmer if he doesn't hold your hand and show you the farm like a tour agent. His wife, Trudi, is the hospitality side, who will explain patiently and show guests around the farm,... More

I took my family to Macka's farm for a week stay this December. When Trudi told me that there's poor or almost no Internet reception I wonder if I could survive the days there unconnected to the rest of the world especially with office work. It proved to be the best decision indeed to be stayed free from accessing emails... More

We stayed over at Lodge 2 together with our two kids, 12 & 10. Macka and Julie were fantastic host . They showed us round the farm and got us involved in the daily feeding of the cows, sheep, alpacas , pigs and chickens . The kids had fun playing with the dogs Andy and Jack and the cat too....
