Kilmuir is an historic sheep and cattle property. Eighty acres was purchased at the first auction of Mansfield farmland on June 7, 1854, for one pound per acre. Over the following 130 years purchase of adjoining land saw the property grow to over 1,000 acres.

A considerable workforce was employed to work on the farm. Many of the men and some of their families lived at Kilmuir in workers' cottages. Kilmuir Country Retreat was originally the shearers' quarters.

For your added security, this property is only managed in Australia and we never request payments to be made to overseas bank accounts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a wonderful place for the extended family We found everything we wanted at Kilmuir for an extended family gathering where we gathered to celebrate a birthday. All ages were delighted by the place. The 2 grandchildren arrived to be invited to see the new born calf( great for city kids) and family and partners were all happy in that they all had their own separate bedrooms...a basic room, each one opening onto the front or back verandahs of the shearing shed, but comfortable beds, electric blankets and heaters. The kitchen /meals area was a fantastic place to all be preparing a real cook up and feast. Two fridges, large stove, lots of pots and pans etc made for an easy place to work in. The adjoining lounge sitting area , although smaller, worked well and had a fantastic heater which heated the whole area. Couches on both front and back verandahs allowed us to sit and enjoy superb sunsets and for the early birds the sunrises. The garden surrounding the property was inspiring and full of birds. Cattle in the adjoining paddock, kangaroos in the late afternoons and a close walk to hear the pobblebonk frogs (not sure of that spelling) all provided interest. There was a great BBq area and outside tables and chairs scattered around the garden gave quiet spaces if anyone needed them Our host was helpful, very friendly and informative and made our stay very special. Nothing was too much bother for her.... somehow she managed to also provide us with the most glorious weather for the 4 days that we were there! Thanks Erica!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property Myself and a group of friends stayed here over grandfinal weekend. We had a blast. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. Went so far as to get a big tv out of storage in town for us. She also changed our towels and made sure we were very comfortable. We were left to our own devices and had a great time. Would recommend Kilmuir to anyone looking for a quiet weekend or a good time with a group of mates. 10/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a memorable experience! On behalf of my family and myself, I would like to express our pleasure and happiness with our stay at Kilmuir.

We are already discussing our next visit! Thank you Erica for a wonderful weekend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely relaxing break over Easter Our group of 17 people ranging from 7 to 83 years old enjoyed a welcome break chilling out at Kilmuir over the Easter long weekend. The property is located about 5 minutes outside of Mansfield and is the perfect place to unwind for both adults and kids. The bedrooms are cosy and comfortable with electric blankets and the kitchen is extremely well stocked with no shortage of utensils for large group cooking. We were lucky to have perfect weather so really made the most of the new outdoor dining area and huge BBQ. As it was starting to get a bit chilly in the evenings Erica and her husband bought over a couple of outdoor heaters for us so we could still enjoy sitting outside. If you like photography you'll never want to leave the property, it's beautiful with lovely gardens and attractive wooden buildings, I recommend asking Erica for a tour of the shearing shed - fascinating history! Erica is a great host, she made sure we had everything we wanted and her knowledge of the region and its history is unsurpassed. I hope we can come back sometime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic family weekend away We were a group of 4 families with young kids (16 pax) and found Kilmuir perfect for our 4 day break. The property was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The gardens and surrounds were gorgeous and we were the first guests to enjoy the awesome new undercover alfresco area. The property has extensive verandas back and front with plenty of chairs to sit and take in the surrounds. The owner Ericka was extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble pre, during and post our holiday. A fantastic break, we wil bw back
