A quiet country road leads you to this place of interest and tranquillity.

Forest Glen comprises 65 hectares 160 acres, about a third of which is natural, native bushland, another third being wide open spaces, and the final third being an organic tea tree plantation.

The homestead and Farm Stay are surrounded by well kept lawns and gardens, inviting birds and wildlife to share the space. Waking up to the grazing 'roos, moor-hens and ducks outside the door is a daily event.

Our mission is to provide an ecologically friendly environment in which you can come and look, learn, dine and relax in one place.

Forest Glen Organic Farm is civilisation...

The Farm Stay accommodation comprises a four bedroom original cottage. This can be occupied by as few people as just a couple or as many as eight people in three queens and a double . This is supplemented by a basic-style bunk room with 10 bunk beds and a sofa bed. At a pinch, we can sleep another four in a separate building. The Farm Stay comes complete with fully self-contained kitchen, dining/lounge room, bathroom, TV and a wood combustion stove for winter heating.

Attached to the bunk room is a games room with pool table, table tennis and table games complete the picture inside.

For such large numbers, additional multiple, segregated bathroom/toilet amenities are just a few steps away. These facilities include wheelchair access showers and toilets for disabled folk who are able to bear weight. Imagine bringing your aged parents for a couple of days to the country, knowing they will be cared for as well as they are at home.

Forest Glen Organic Farm also boasts a 60-seat reception centre that is designed to cater for day tour groups morning teas, lunches, etc., parties, weddings, seminars and small conferences. Amanda's many years of catering experience, including seven years on the road feeding film crews and stars alike, are put to good use, and meal packages are available by arrangement. The Farm Stay provides an option for staying on site after the function.

Forest Glen Organic Farm is an A1 certified organic tea tree plantation, where we grow the trees and process the oil on site. At different times of the year, you may be able to see the harvester and distillation plant at work. We are also growing fruit and vegetables organically. If you would like to know more about organic mechanics, it's all here for the learning.

The great draw card for our Farm Stay is its positioning for large families or groups of friends to come together in an absolutely relaxed atmosphere, with minimal rules and no effective curfew, so that you can just focus on the natural tranquillity and enjoy the company of your companions.

Forest Glen Organic Farm is nature...

Forest Glen Organic Farm is a haven for birds and other wildlife, with over 100 species of birds recorded on the property over time over 40 species evident on any given day, and with numerous kangaroos, wallabies, free-roaming horses and other wildlife resident on the property. It is not unusual to spot an echidna, a goanna, or a python. Just for the looking.

Forest Glen Organic Farm has wide open spaces for camping, romping, playing, ball games, strolling, jogging, cycling and so on. We adjoin Bungawalbyn Creek, where kayaking and fishing can be enjoyed. Get the exercise you need, or just relax over a drink.

At night time, the only lights you see are generated on site or in the sky above. On cloudless and moonless nights, it is just as likely that the homestead lights will go out and the telescope will emerge. At these times, weather and season permitting, it is also likely that we will offer our hugely popular campfire under the stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful place for a large family gathering Simple place with an abundance of wild kangaroo in their natural habitat. Horses, ducks, chickens. Nearby farms have sheep and cows. This is not a typical farmstay. It's unique and lovely. Plenty privacy. Pool. Really lovely space and quiet.
