On our farm attractions and activities - see sheep, goats, ducks, chooks, bushwalks or just to enjoy magnificent views surrounded by spectacular sandstone cliffs (you have to see it for yourself) and a variety of wildlife and native flora. You will experience the perfect environment for relaxation. "The Cubby House" is also ideal for photography, landscape painting, bird watching and star gazing. We do not have any set activities.

The bedrooms consist of 1 king size bed in main bedroom, there is room for a single bed or cot in this room if required and 3 single beds in each of the other 2 bedrooms. A cot is available on request. It would be handy if you let us know if you require the cot in your bedroom or another bedroom. For a second/third couple we can put the single beds together to make more double beds, if preferred. Advise at time of booking what beds you require i.e. double/single as only the requested number of beds will be made for use.
All you require is food, drinks, warm and cold clothes for any season is advisable and maybe a pair of gumboots for the kids. Preferrably, do not wear "white" as the red dirt will stain them.
