This property offers you a chance to get away and relax in a peaceful bush environment. It is a rustic getaway set on 200 acres an hours drive from Hornsby. There are approximately 6 acres cleared and fenced with three friendly cows and an alpaca. Chickens and a peacock welcome you at the front gate. It is located in a north facing valley at the end of a small country road and adjoins the Onley State Forest forming part of the Watagan Mountains creating a completely private and tranquil setting with endless bush-walking opportunities.

This place provides a chance to gather and get grounded in nature. What does it mean to be Grounded@Mandalong?

To be grounded or earthed is to reconnect with nature. This is your chance to step away from technology and our fast paced lifestyle and to simply walk barefoot on the earth, hug a tree and spend time in nature at its slowest.
