Our countryside has gentle undulations, perfect for walking out to discover many species of parrots and birds inhabiting the large stands of eucalypts. Village pubs offer hearty country food and a warm welcome.
Avaleigh Elms is two hours drive to the wine and food regions of Orange and Mudgee, 11/2 hours to the town of Goulburn and 2 ½ hours to Canberra on the Tablelands Way.

Don and Jenn are waiting to give you a warm country welcome and advise that Avaleigh Elms now welcomes well behaved pets.

Guests are welcome to bring their own horses to ride out into the adjacent State Forest. There are lots of tracks and it is almost impossible to get lost. View the wildlife from horseback in the cool pine forest. Perfect in any weather!

The most amazing place!
We took our 2 dogs to Avaleigh Elms for the weekend and had the most magical time. The cabin is a romantic dream come true with a log fire and cosy blankets and it was impressively clean and homely. We were lucky enough to have some snow during our stay which made our experience complete! The dogs had an amazing time walking the hills and fields and making friends with the cows, horses, donkeys, etc and we had a fantastic time watching the families of roos hopping across snow covered fields, taking photos of the wombats and enjoying the farm fresh eggs and delicious baked treats generously supplied by the very friendly owners. We want to go back there already!!

Thank you John and Tina for your hospitality. Our grandsons thoroughly enjoyed their stay and enjoyed the many experiences you gave them i.e. feeding the calf, collecting duck and chicken egss, riding on the trailer etc. Hope the little calf is okay.

Really fantastic place for a family stay in the country. Friendly hosts; also very friendly farm animals much loved by our 9 year old girl. Loved the cold in July - even had a slight sprinkle of snow. The cottage is cosy and comfortable with a slow combustion fire. We are keen to return.
