The drive into Duckmaloi Farm from Sydney was an experience in itself. Having only been in Sydney, this was the first time our family drove out into the countryside. Just seeing the transformation of busy roads and chaotic buildings to wide open rolling hills dropped my stress levels. The kids had great fun shouting out names of animals they saw... More

We stayed in the Wombat Cottage and the cottage itself is very well built. The design is great and its very homely. The deck outside has amazing views of the rolling meadows and you will no doubt see kangaroos hanging around. We even saw a wombat! The cottage has everything you need and the owners make sure they have stocked... More

I knew this place was going to be good when I saw that the owners had pre-warmed the cabin by having the gas heaters on, and there was also nice jazz playing. This is a really great touch, especially when you have been driving two and a half hours on a very foggy and dark night through windy roads from... More

I highly recommend staying here, especially if you have young children who love animals. We stayed for three nights, with our three young children in one of the cottages. The cottages were clean, well equipped and had beautiful views. The starter breakfast items, treats and good plunger coffee were much appreciated. The farm was well looked after, and there were...

We booked a cottage to stay for three days during the weekdays. The place is tranquil. The farm is neat, spacious, well managed. Animals are all lovely and of many kinds. My boy loves it so much and look forward to coming back again. Very lovely stay !

4 families long weekend getaway. We booked the farmhouse and the 2 cottages. The place is very well set up and serviced. The animals are great, kids loved feeding them - very easy going. Big house was great for dinners and bbq outside (with fire pit for warmth). Owner is excellent and provided good feedback and advice prior to stay.... More

We booked this accomodation after having another cancel on us and i am SO happy they did - they say everything happens for a reason! We had friends staying with us from the UK and i wanted to show them the REAL beauty of the blue mountains NOT just the tourist route (ie katommba/wenworth falls etc). This was exactly what... More

Duckmaloi Farm is a firm favourite for us. We first came in 2011 and every visit since has been equally wonderful. The air up here is clean and crisp and smells of growing things, and the landscape driving in makes you remember how wonderful it is to be Australian and call this beautiful country home. Upon arrival we always run... More

We've just returned from Duckmaloi Farm. We took our sons aged 6 & 8 and our two dogs. It was our first time and we are already planning our next visit. We loved it! Next time we will take two cottages and/or the house and bring along our extended family. There was a self-service check in/out (this didn't bother us).... More

The ponies are suffering - no doubt experience a lot of pain & discomfort - because they have their hooves have overgrown. They NEED to be seen by a farrier. I didn't like taking my kids to a farm where not all of the animals are receiving the care they deserve. The accomodation was cosy & pleasant. A little dated... More

Chuggers, Owner at Duckmaloi Farm, responded to this review

Our ponies were rescued from a very old lady 2 years ago who had let their hooves grow way out of control, she could not look after them. We have a master farrier visiting every 4-6 weeks to try and get them back to as best shape as possible but it is very difficult and a very slow process. You... More
