We loved the place and lodging. The lodge we stayed were big and equipped! It's a working farm so in the evening we get to see all cows "come home" and be milked! A very homely place to stay for your time in GOR!

The pros: - it's location: about 10 minutes drive to the 12 Apostles - great fun for the kids with activities such as milking the cows, seeing how a dairy farm operates, the chickens and their eggs, rope swing in the barn - the farm owners who are entirely helpful and the lady tells many witty stories The cons: -...

We visited Macka's farm because we wanted our toddler to experience the countryside/farm animals. It was thoroughly enjoyable and had something for everyone. Mum loved the countryside scenery and fresh air. She commented that this farmstay was more real (less commercialised) I loved the fact that I could simply drive 10mins to the surrounding sights - 12 Apostles and all... More

We stayed at the Farmhouse lodge with total of 3 families. the farmhouse is very clean and well equipped. The rooms are spacious and there are lots of space for the children to play outside. The activities are free and easy but they do let you know when certain activities are held, example milking cows are usually done in the... More

This was our second trip to Macka's Farm and once again, it did not disappoint. The proprieters Trudy & Macka are great hosts, and the farm stay accommodation is very comfortable. The farm is located along the beautiful Great Ocean Road coastline close to such amazing sights as the twelve apostles and Loch Ard gorge. It was a perfect setup... More

We've stayed at Macka's Farm three times now. The first time in lodge 1, which is closest to the barn and had a lovely verandah with awesome views. The second time we went, we took more grandparents and other adult family members with us and stayed in the farmhouse, which was spacious and had less flies buzzing about the doors... More

We spent 4 nights Macka's farm and it was a one of the best Victorian experience. The lodge was very clean and comfortable and it had a well equipped kitchen. The bbq facilities provided was great too. But do remember to buy your groceries from Colac or Geelong as the nearest town Port Campbell has limited range of groceries. my... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as a reward for our 3 kids (all under 4) after forcing them down to cold and rainy Melbourne for a work trip. We've stayed at farm stays before and have grown up around farms. It was just after school holidays had finished so maybe they were a bit over it but we weren't made... More

Great for the kids and adults alike. If you have never done a farm stay, try it! Macka has about 110 cows (we saw one newborn calf delivered), pigs, piglets, chickens, dogs. You are allowed to help feed the animals twice a days, once in the morning at about 0900H and once in the afternoon about 1600H. Both the owners... More

The accommodations were spacious & comfortable. Rooms have real wood fires to keep warm during the chilly nights. We had free run of the farm & barn, interacting with the dogs, cats, kittens, rabbits. If you really want, you can go meet the oats, pigs & cows too. We could make use of the electric BBQ ( but have you... More
