“Wonderful Farm experience for the whole family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2010

When we decided to take our one and two year old to Dubbo Zoo for the Easter weekend, we thought that we needed to break up the long car trip and stay in Bathurst on route. After a search on the net, I found the website for Barcoo's Barn Farmstay and decided to book.

It was a brilliant place...Elaine and Ken's working farm was the highlight of our weekend!

As soon as we arrived, our two year old was marched off to hand feed the three newborn lambs...she was so amazed at the experience and couldn't stop talking about it from then on! The next morning she bottlefed a brand newborn calf and then mixed up some food and fed the chickens. Then the big highlight, a pony ride!

Elaine then treated all of us, with a ride through the village on the cart pulled by the beautiful Clydesdale, Barcoo.

The accommodation was very comfortable with enough room for a number of families on the property. We stayed a self contained section of the homestead and had the run of four rooms. Having a pub with a bistro two minutes away was handy, but there is a camp kitchen on the property- great if you decided to have a BBQ with friends. The free wireless was also a bonus.

Next time we will definitely stay longer, and bring some friends with us to share the experience. We would recommend this to anyone who wants a true farm experience, especially those who have children.
