Wongarra Farm is a magnificent sustainable working farm on 90 acres of exquisite rolling green hills overlooking the Great Southern Ocean. It is ideally placed just 2km inland from the Great Ocean Road and 20 minutes from Apollo Bay offering the best of local ocean beaches and unspoilt rainforest.

The farm is wonderfully diverse and includes rich green pasture, two creeks, several dams, native bush, rain forest and fern-lined gullies. It borders the large Otways Main Ridge Conservation Reserve and hosts abundant native animals and birds, including koalas, wallabies, bower birds and wedge-tailed eagles. The Great Otway National Park is just minutes away.

The farm produces the highly sought after Black Perigord truffles. It also produces grass-fed beef and lamb, free-range eggs and pork as well as a wide range of fruits, vegetables and berries. The farm is a prized example of productive chemical-free farming whilst maintaining respect for the native environment.

The elegant cedar homestead is sited close to a beautiful gurgling creek, waterfall and picturesque pond. The generous living areas look out over an expansive lawn with views of the mature exotic garden full of azaleas, camelias and magnolias through to the ocean beyond. The house comprises three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a sun room, laundry, large well-appointed kitchen and huge open-plan living and dining areas.

Two wood-fired heaters and reverse cycle air conditioning guarantee comfort all year round. The living area is comfortable and very generous and even includes a piano. The kitchen features a large dual fuel stove, dishwasher, microwave, espresso machine and ample bench space. There are enough settings to cater for dinners of up to 12 people. The master bedroom is on the second floor and features an ensuite with spa bath as well as picture windows with views to die for. Two further bedrooms downstairs feature access to the outdoor decking and two bathrooms. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the third contains double bunks and a trundle bed. The sun room can double as an additional bedroom. The wide decking overlooks a large lawn and paved entertaining area with an ocean backdrop. From here it is a short walk to a fern-lined waterfall and pond with secret paths leading along the creek through remnant rain forest. The farm's pastures, orchard, berry patch, greenhouse and truffiere are also just a short walk from the house.

Wongarra Farm is ideal for a family holiday getaway or a romantic and indulgent unwind. It is a wonderful experience to see an ethical and productive farm in action but also a terrific base for adventures in the surf, whale watching, surf fishing, the regional gastronomy, the Otways Fly, the numerous horse and mountain bike trails, not to mention stunning displays of the night sky and the simple majesty of the native flora and fauna. There are rich experiences to be had right through all the four seasons.

Wongarra Farm. A slice of paradise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing property in a beautiful setting! We've only just returned home and are missing the farm already. Roderick was so very warm and welcoming to us. The house is very homely and situated on the edge of beautiful farmland with fantastic coastal views. We loved exploring the fields and seeing the Alpaca, pigs, cows, resident Koala and the farm dogs Bella and Luna were always excited to see us too. We will definitely come back and recommend the farm to others. Thanks again Roderick :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From hills to coast: splendour in the grass! This is a very special place in a very special part of the Victorian coast. Situated in the middle of a working farm, Wongarra Farm Homestead has all mod-cons with no fuss or bother. Host Roderick is quietly present when required but otherwise busy out on the land. (And leaves freshly laid eggs and other produce as a welcome mat.) The place is in a quiet nook of the Otway State Forest, with a view of the sea. As a family of four, we loved every moment of our sojourn--and will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend We stayed here for 2 nights as we had a wedding in wongara. Was an amazing little cosy B & B that was tucked away. Was nice and private and so relaxing. The beautiful home made bread and muesli were fantastic for breakfast. Would highly recommend for a quite getaway with plenty of time to unwind

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful grounds and well appointed Lovely garden and wilderness, a welcoming host and easy drive to beaches. We'll be visiting again. Especially good with kids - plenty of hiding places and great to see the farm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little slice of heaven... It was an impromptu get away. We needed space to unwind and rejuvenate, away from the bustle of Melbourne and hectic family life. Wongarra Farm looked the part - modern comfort with panoramic views of rolling hills, vast ocean and the promise of the odd farm animal to awaken the country spirit within. Wongarra proved to be so much more. It was a long drive with four boys in the back seat, and our awaiting host/farmer, Roderick, was quick to greet us with a cold G&T on arrival. The boys spilled into the beautifully maintained and well appointed house, claimed their rooms and disappeared into the incredible garden - where they remained for most of our stay. This farm really is a little slice of heaven. To the south lies a large lawn, perfect for children and hours of outdoor ball games, followed by rolling hills and ocean. To the west lies a secret path leading to a private rainforest with stream and waterfall. A chapter from 'The Enchanted Wood'. To the north, the farm unfolds, with chickens, sheep, 2 very entertaining and personable pigs, a horse and some cattle. Roderick is an excellent guide and a thoughtful owner who values resourcefulness and sustainability. He welcomed the interest and incessant questions from the children and imparted his knowledge with an obvious joy. We explored the diverse grounds, fed the pigs and chickens, collected eggs for breakfast and retired in comfort inside a warm house with views from every window. Just quietly, my husband and I delighted in a fabulous coffee from the kitchen coffee machine - a Melbourne habit hard to kick - and better than the coffee we tried in Apollo Bay township. Wongarra is the perfect spot to base yourself for the many day trips and coastal activities in the area, or equally perfect if you don't want to move a muscle. Thank you. We look forward to returning when future R&R is required.
