What a great spot. We fell in love with Dunsborough and the Farm Cottages. So perfect drinking our morning tea on the terrace looking into the majestic trees. Facilities where nice and clean and comfortable, bathroom was lovely (spa bath even). It was so handy to town and everything around, but felt a million miles away, the clarity of the... More

Beat place, owners are friendly and can pet and feed the chooks and alpacas every morning. Might even be lucky enough to get some fresh chook eggs for breakfast. There are 2 short peaceful walk to take on the property. Where you can see many birds, kangaroos, sheep and sometimes a rabbit or fox. This place has amazing fitted out... More

This was our third visit staying in a deluxe cottage. Each time we have stayed with a group of families and this place is perfect for this. It's off the main road so kids can roam or ride between the cottages (the standard cottages are a small distance from the deluxe cottages), it's dog friendly and as the deluxe cottages... More

I have just returned to Perth from three days and two nights refreshing break at Dunsborough Railway Carriages and Cottages. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the quaint Railway carriage converted into accommodation. It was most comfortable with everything you need for a night or two away from home for a perfect rest. We woke up to birds churping, gorgeous... More

We stayed for three nights in one of the converted rail carriages. The setting is lovely and the way the carriages are spaced gives a real feeling of privacy. The carriage was more spacious than we expected. I think it would be a struggle to get more than one person on the sofa bed but two children would be fine.... More

this place is what you expect from a friendly family stay. there are some animals there the units are clean and tidy. there is a great ice creamery only 2 mins away and you are only a short trip to town. if you are after a comfortable place without stretching your budget then this is the place for you.

Nothing can begin to describe how awesome it was to stay in a Rail Carriage. They are cosy, well layed out and have everything you need. I felt like a was a kid again. The scenery is very pretty and it is very quiet. Hardly knew there were other people around (there were). Can't recommend this place enough!

We stayed in the rail carriages, so have no idea what the cottages are like. The carriages are surprisingly large - but don't believe suggestions that they can sleep more than 2 (unless the extra occupants are very small). The (very comfortable) double bed just fits in the width of the carriage and we found it easiest to move the... More

We loved our stay here. We were able to take our dog which was a real bonus. We were very close to Dunsborough and some winerys. The real fire was fantastic and although basic the cottages are clean and comfortable.

My girlfriend and I stayed in a rail carriage for an extended weekend, while we explored Dunsborough and the surrounding area. Firstly it was a really fun place to stay! On the property they keep animals which you can feed in the morning. We loved the alpacas, but the chickens also deserve a mention for their delicious (and free!) eggs.... More
