“Camping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2012

A beautiful place to camp with lots of wildlife and farm animals around. The views from the campsite are spectacular and the area is very peaceful. However, the amenities are woeful, a long arduous trek to a drab building containing two toilets and two showers. The camping amenities block shown in the you tube clip on the website were closed and looked like they had not been in use for sometime. In addition, the campsite has no running water, a long trek is required to obtain water from a tap among the farm buildings. I would recommend a portable toilet and a plastic jerry can for storing drinking water. If you can overcome the lack of amenities, the property is a great place to camp.The farm personnel are very friendly and I would recommend the horse riding which is run very competently.

“not what it is advertised to be”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2011

Megalong Valley Farm WAS once a beautiful working farm with an interesting heritage centre, onsite accommodation and lots of activites including horseriding. Now it is a shadow of it's former glory and will no doubt dissappoint most visitors. The horse riding is still acceptable but the accommodation is woeful and should be avoided. It is charged at 4-5 star prices and would be lucky to be 1 star in reality. There are no facilities for campers, as claimed, and all in all it's a depressing place to visit with even the staff's morale affected by the bad management of the whole facility.

Informed022, Owner at Megalong Valley Farm, responded to this review, May 19, 2013
Sorry that the venue have changed its operations. It ceased as a working farm and heritage centre in June 2011 resulting from the drop in overall tourism numbers to the region with the GFC downturn. The accommodation provides a great getaway for people from the hustle and bustle of the city and is designed to fit in the overall wilderness getaway experience.

We do strive to meet expectations and our feedback forms in our rooms and our rides all reassure us that we are in fact exceeding their expectations. We genuinely care about our guests and those choosing to stay with us to expect a country stay equating to what is portrayed in our images. The venue for twenty years has endeavored to be accurate in what it does and provides; and not to oversell itself.
