Rated 5 out of 5 by from From the moment my family of 5 pulled up to the entry gates of this stunning property i knew we made a great choice as a holiday rental. The beautifully furnished home with every possible feature was the perfect location to just relax and forget the world. For the active people, there is loads to do around the property. Paddle boating in the dam, a game of tennis or billiards, and then you can unwind with a swim in the gorgeous pool or sit back and relax in the spa. The grounds are perfectly maintained and Meg the owner is a lovely and welcoming host that is more than happy to assist, guide and lend a hand with your needs and Max the farm dog instantly becomes one of the family. There is also loads to do in the area, there is a massive Westfield 5 minutes from the house, a nature adventure park and more within close distance. We would definitely return and we highly recommend a stay at Fernbank as your next holiday destination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wife and I had a pleasant stay here over Christmas. The house is beautiful and is very comfortable and has a historic feel to it. The managers are very hospitable and welcoming, and went out of their way to help us! On Christmas morning, the managers gave us a beautiful horse drawn carriage ride!! There are lovely grounds to roam around and stretch your legs, but like any Australian farm, one needs to be careful of the surrounding wildlife. The swimming pool was also a plus. Great to have an entire house to ourselves. They have a very friendly dog that openly roams the property. A great combination of hotel amenities in laid back country home. The bath robes are luxurious!
