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.
