Being the closest to the Gingin Observatory and most accommadating place for children. Sandy lake was ticking off the boxes.
Our hosts were very welcoming and helped us out with plenty of helpful information on how to get to Sandy lake and how to make this easier with children in mind.
Kids loved all the animals and randomly friendly Kangaroos. Feeding the Dorper sheep and checking out all the other farm friends.
Although, for those people who are travelling through with children under five. The observatory, (now that we have visited it) i'd say, its safe to say the kids were to young to really appreciate it. But hey worth a try, fabulous night for it. Also i would diffently recommend staying in Abbeys Cottage if travelling with young children.
We stayed in guest wing of Farm house and although it was very comfortable and clean. Your shareing this space with the hosts and the other guests. This is a nice atmosphere, but was not what we expected. Especially with kids. There is also only one toilet and one shower to share amougst potentially eight people.
Great to have a cooked breakfast and see a bit of the gingin country side.
