Spend time in the country, away from the hustle and bustle and relax!

Get to know our beautiful four-legged donkey babes whilst you handle, brush and pat them. They will follow you as you walk about the property too. They are pretty quiet and really friendly and just love company!

Great for all ages and described by most as a very therapeutic experience.

At present we have a foal due every six months, so as one is ready to leave, the next is due to be born (Mother Nature permitting).

Renovated two-bedroom cottages, tastefully decorated to feel like your home-away-from home.

New bathrooms, full kitchen with full sized fridge, oven and your own laundry!

Separate lounge and dining areas. Gas log fire and split system air conditioning.

Large screen television and a selection of DVDs for you to enjoy.

1st bedroom has 1 queen sized bed - 2nd bedroom has 1 double bed and 1 single bed.

Pillow top comfy mattresses, crisp white linen and many pillows to choose from. Fluffy towels and a guest robe to wear should you require.

Quality toiletries and a generous, complimentary continental breakfast basket supplied on arrival.

Stay for a couple of days, or take advantage of our discounted weekly rates for a hot deal and truly relax and enjoy the wildlife and the many birds frequenting the property.

You will be in the heart of the Victorian Goldfields, so ask us about spending time with Stinky Pete, to learn all about gold prospecting.

The Daisy Hill track is directly opposite Leeway lane and is most suitable for walking or bring your bikes and really enjoy the many tracks at your doorstep. See the kangaroos, wallabies and sometimes koalas too, all in their natural environment.

Only 8kms into Maryborough township, you couldn't ask for more. Four major supermarkets, K-Mart, country Target and lots of other shopping opportunities. Some great places to eat out for families and couples.

You must take the time to visit the Maryborough Railway Station, described by Mark Twain as 'the town attached to the railway station'. It's character and grandeur are sure to impress!

It's a wonderful place to spend quality time, getting back to basics. Only Telstra provides any reception at the cottages, which most see as a blessing. Other carriers are able to be picked up in Maryborough Township.

Bring your favourite books, games and music, or enjoy the entertainment of the outdoors.

An indoor pool is available in town at the YMCA, or swimming is permitted about 4 kms toward Maryborough, at the Reservoir.

Talbot is 7 km away and has one of the best outdoor country markets, held on the third Sunday of each month.

Clunes is about 15 minutes away and has an historic township, which has been home to some famous movie sets.

Lots of local drives to enjoy exploring the area.

We'd love you to visit and will happily chat to help you make the most of your time here.
