The Surrounding Area
This region has an enormous amount to offer visitors ranging from the Goulburn River which is only a 10 minute drive and Yea township only 30 minutes drive, visiting the local wineries, pubs and farmers markets. There is also good fishing just past the township of Strath Creek at Richards Bridge.
For the bicycle rider, horse rider or walking enthusiasts, we are only a 9 minute drive from Kerrisdale which has an access point for the Great Victorian Rail Trail which can take you in either direction towards Tallarook or Yea and onto Mansfield.
On the homestead, we use sustainable energy to produce our own electricity, harnessing solar power. Our pristine water comes from captured rain water. When using water for showers, flushing the toilet and using power, please me mindful of our natural resources and how limited they are.
