We travelled as a group of two adults and 4 children aged 5-8 and stayed for 4 nights and had an absolute blast! I would highly recommend Lucieville to anyone travelling to Perth and the South West of Western Australia. In fact, I hesitate to put this review here in case the word gets out about how amazing this place is!
Farm owners Michael and Pat are lovely, and very happy to have the kids follow them around day and night as they go about life on this small farm. The morning feeding ritual involved feeding milk to the lambs, feeding the chickens, turkeys, guinea pigs, rabbits, pigs, emus, water buffalo and donkeys (bring your wellies! and old clothes - this isn't a place for your best resort wear).
For the rest of the day, there is bushland to walk through, horse riding is optional, canoes to paddle about on in the dam, and the odd ride in Michael's ute to move the horses. A pet kangaroo named Chloe, and the farm Kelpie 'Jess' are never too far away either.
There are many beautiful spots a short drive away from the farm, and Bridgetown is a quick trip up the road, but we really only left the farm for supplies.
We stayed in one of the bigger chalets. It was basic, but perfect for a farm stay. I imagine the chalets would get quite cold in winter and fairly hot in summer as the walls of the A-frames are very thin.
