The Farm Animals

Crystal Hill Homestead is set on 86 acres and is very quiet, being away and out of site from neighbouring farms. In the paddocks far from the Homestead are friendly goats to visit, pat and feed. Baby goats are born regularly you will probabaly get to cuddle one. Sit down and one is sure to jump on your lap.

We have five majestic alpacas who will want to check you out. These guys are very good guardians of the baby goats and are very aware of new human visitors.

We have Dorper sheep (with black heads) they are very friendly and enjoy a scratch on the chest.

Lots of beautiful chickens can be fed your kitchen scraps if you want. In spring there'll be little baby chicks to hold and pet. There's usually an abundance of eggs to collect and eat for your breakfast.

The chickens will be waiting for anyone walking near their run early in the morning. They love to get out and scratch around the yards.

There are usually lots of Kangaroos to see. Other wildlife is abundant. The area is favoured by huge yellow tail black Cockatoos, a real treat to see.

Guests who enjoy walking quietly through the bush can see kangaroos and several different wallaby species and some unusual bird life.

Your dog can run free around the spacious grounds around the homestead and is welcome inside. Please restrain your dog on leach if he/she chases stock or wildlife when outside of the house yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A breath of fresh air Crystal Hill was the perfect escape for our family of four kids plus a cousin. The house is beautiful, the animals are adorable and Cheryl and Martin were simply fantastic hosts - relaxed, easy going and happy to share their lives. The kids loved roaming around on their bikes, feeding the animals, and making cubby houses. It gave us a moment to have a cuppa in front of the fire, read a book and enjoy the serenity. 10/10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing Stay We had a lovely weekend at Crystal Hill. Despite the weather being dreadful we had a very relaxing getaway. The home was comfortable and warm and very well resourced. Our kids loved the baby goats! It was also our first weekend bringing our Labrador with us and it was perfect for her too. Will definitely return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Wonderful We loved feeding all the animals and the house is a delight, made of locally sourced stone with crystals in some pieces of the walls. The kids loved spotting them. It would also suite a multiple families for a special get together or event. Cherry was so welcoming and the children were so keen to explore the farm. Trainspotting, walks to the dam, and wonderful rambles through the bush, spotting amazing moss, lichen and incredible geology - we ran out of time and will be back. The train museum in Goulburn was another wonderful time - allow at least 1.5 hours to see everything in the real roundhouse!
