I won a weekend at Susan River Homestead Adventure Resort and wondered what it would be like as it's only about 25kms from where we live. It's one of those places that you drive past without contemplating staying there as it's so close to home. We were in for a wonderful surprise when we were greeted by Norm, the owner.... More

During our traveling through Australia we decided to go for a horse back ride at the Susan River Homestead. We got there about three hours early and went to the reception to ask if we could stay on their property and wait. We did not expect much, we were only looking for a shadowy place as it was very warm.... More

Our family holiday has basic needs: sunshine, peace, clean but simple accommodation. The place exceeded our expectations with regards to the wonderful service and the comfort that we received when we spent a week at the Adventure Resort. The staff was very helpful and friendly. They responded professionally and warmly to all our queries and needs during the week. We... More

We have driven past the Susan River many times over the last 30 years and have never stayed. Now that we have children who were keen to ride horses it seemed the ideal place. The owner Norm Mclean runs the place still after 30 years. His great aussie character and horsemanship will not only impress but also inspire you to... More

This location was an awesome find. From the time I called to enquire until the time we booked out, Norm made us feel very special. We purchased the 'Relaxation Package' which included all our food. The food was lovely 'homecooked' and plenty of it. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. Plenty for the kids to do without extra cost (pool,... More

We did the horse-riding as a group of three (with a few others in our group making seven in total plus two staff) and our skill level ranged from accomplished rider with teaching experience (my wife) to complete novice (me!) and we all had great fun. Highly recommended, my wife was gutted to have to leave at the end of... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Peaceful and relaxing. Maybe you want action. Susan River Homestead caters for everyone, any age. A safe environment for the kids and family, yet enjoyable enough for the more active people. Horse riding, para sailing, water skiing, wake-boarding, paintball, abseiling. All of this is located on the 1660 acre property, plus more. Rooms are comfortable with an en-suite, tea/coffee facilities. Split system air con in every room. A family, joined motel room is available upon request at an extra cost. The restaurant is welcoming with a fire lit in the winter. Throw the doors open in summer to enjoy the country fresh smells carried on the breeze. Come and try for yourself. ... more   less
