Description

Park Hill is a 700 hectare / 1700 acres, sheep and cattle farm, ideally situated 20 minutes from the City of Hamilton and one hour from the coast, Great Ocean Road, Coonawarra and the Grampians. The property is owned by Bill and Carol Bailey, who have restored, renovated and operate the farm holiday cottage which was previously the shearer's quarters.

The renovated 4 bedroom cottage has an open fire place, sleeps 7 people, large living area, overlooking the Wannon River Valley and surrounding hills. No traffic, only the tranquillity of nature and maybe the daily routine of work on a farm, including stock work at the nearby woolshed.

The 700 hectares included flat red gum tablelands, and the fertile basalt hills, often steep, forming the Wannon River Valley. Magnificent views can be seen from the plateaus of the Grampians and Mt Napier, being visible, plus looking over the Wannon River Valley and surrounding hills and having a view of the historic homestead and National Trust listed Murndal, built in 1845 by descendants of the Hentys.

Up to 5,000 Merino sheep, which produce a magnificent soft wool and 300 Angus cattle, are run on the property. Extensive pasture revegitation and tree planting programs have been instigated in the past 10 years. Large amounts of hay are reserved for the dry autumns and often wet winters, mainly fed to the cattle, with grain, wheat, barley and oats being fed to the sheep. Shearing occurs at several times of the year but manly late in the year i.e. October - December.

With the tranquillity and operation of the farm, come opportunities to visit the Coonawarra vineyards, ancient volcanic craters at Mt Napier, Mt Eccles, Tower Hill, the Grampians and many tourist attractions in Hamilton and the beaches of Portland, Port Fairy and Warrnambool.

Undoubtedly what strikes most visitors is the almost eerie, peace and serenity of the property compared to the urban mayhem many of us face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect farm stay perfect hosts Well, we stumbled across an absolute gold mine in finding this place and to top it off Bill and Carol were the best hosts you could ever ask for. Bill your stories of the farm and the amazing history the place has was fantastic, believe me we all found it hard to leave. 4 adults and 6 dogs was heaven for all of us. Driving down the road to discover your property at the end of the road surrounded by rolling hills made it hard to leave every day for the Kelpie Muster. Your little cottage was absolutely perfect and it felt like home and so cosy given the cold weather. It was the perfect 4 day-er and we will be back for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Stay Wow, wow, wow..... Carol and Bill are the most amazing hosts and the property is absolutely fantastic at the end of the road. You are surrounded with rolling hills and cattle pastures with the cutest little cottage to stay in. We had 4 adults and 6 dogs and we ALL had the best time. So much history goes along with this property so be sure to ask Bill all about it. I can't recommend this place highly enough, we felt like we landed in heaven. We will be back I'm sure again and again. Thanks for a wonderful 4 days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Park Hill Farmstay Wannon Victoria had a wonderful and relaxing time on this beautiful property. the scenic vista's of the countryside on the farm were stunning. I was so peaceful and relaxing. the cottage was so warm and inviting a lovely place to stay. On arrival at night to Park Hill the property owners Bill and Carol already had the fire place going for us so it was so snug and warm in the lounge area. Bill and Carol were awesome hosts and so kind and down to earth. Bill and Carol left us to enjoy our peaceful and tranquil stay and if we ever needed anything they were either nearby in the main home or a phone call away, but as we found they had already supplied us with everything we needed so we didn't need to call them away from their working schedule. I would recommend Park Hill in Wannon Victoria to anyone wanting to escape the hectic daily grind of life and enjoy the tranquility and fresh good country air. I would stay their again at the lovely cottage for the perfect peaceful atmosphere and beautiful scenery. Put Park hill at Wannon, west Victoria on your to do list I recommend this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simply perfect!!! Bill and Carol, we cannot thank you enough for the amazing expereince we had at your farm. Our 5 & 7 yr old boys loved watching Bill shear the sheep and him taking us all around the farm on the back of the ute with the dogs. We all enjoyed ourselves immensley and would highly recommend anyone with kids to spend some time at Park Hill.
