Activities & Day Trips
On the Farm
While staying with us we offer the ultimate farm experience. Join in the daily farm activities of milking the cows, separating the cream and churning butter. Morning tea of freshly baked scones with homemade jam and cream is then served before heading off on a guided tour of the farm and surrounding bushland to interact with our friendly farm animals. During the afternoon the children can participate in our Kids Club, where we offer various activities, giving parents some time to really relax and enjoy the tranquil surroundings. Weather will determine the activities offered, we cook damper and billy tea, or roast marshmallows around the fire. We then do the afternoon feeding of animals and collecting eggs, and sometimes we have evening activities of sitting around the fire, nightly bushwalks, or entertainment in our activities room.
Please note: The Farm Tour and Kids Club activities are all inclusive. The main Farm Tour activities and Kids Club are available on Saturdays and Wednesdays.
Bush Walks & Wildlife
There are numerous bushwalks in the area ranging from small easy walks around the farm and our bushland area, to an eight day walk to Cradle Mountain on the Penguin Cradle Trail. Other interesting walks are Thornsby’s Tunnel, a 30 min return walk through stunning bush following a trickling creek to an old silver mine with glow worms. There are walks to Mount Montgomery, Tall Trees, Leven River and Mount Duncan, all around 1-2 hours return. A fantastic area for photography and birdwatching, and discovering the flora and fauna native to the area. At night take a walk around the property with torchlight to see the wildlife in its native habitat, and enjoy the moon and stars in an endless sky.
