About Cherry Hood
Cherry Hood is a well known Australian artist who has lived in the beautiful part of the world for since 2004. She moved here from Balmain in Sydney where she was finding life a little to hectic and busy. Although she fell in love with the magnificent stone Homestead her main plan was to build the art studio of her dreams. A place where she could work in peace and quiet. The homestead has many of Cherry’s paintings and guests are also welcome to see the art studio where she displays her portraits. Cherry is famous for winning the Archibald prize in 2002 when she had only been out of art school for 2 years! Life was crazy for her after that and then she was also invited to show her work in New York. She showed successfully over seas for several years until she became very tired of the travelling. Her move to GOULBURN has been a great relief. She continue to show around Australia with galleries in most capital cities to represent and exhibiting her work. She now loves to ‘give back’ by teaching and running painting workshops both away and in her huge studio. See more about Cherry on her website,
Cherry Hood purchased this Farmhouse in 2004
Why Cherry Hood chose Towrang
We welcome children and we’re very happy to introduce them to our goats and encourage them to get ‘up close and personal’ with them. Our goats love children and want to be friendly. The homestead is so very beautiful that everyone who sees it falls in love with it. The homestead has a welcoming homey atmosphere, it’s full of books and paintings and interesting things like the Crystals embedded in the walls. We have dozens of regular guests who just adore returning to their home away from home. We’ve watch so many children grow from toddlers to teenagers. Many can’t wait to come back to see their favourite goat or the baby goat they named and cuddled all grown up.

We're a couple with 2 dogs who were looking for a break away from the city over the Christmas/New Year period. We found it. Despite the temperatures soaring outside, the temperature inside the property was quite pleasant with air-conditioning provided in the main bedroom. The dogs loved the grounds as they are unaccustomed to so much grass in their backyard, and we loved the chance to relax in a very comfy setting. Cherry also had goats on the property which were adorable and one of our Bulldogs had an interaction with a kangaroo for the first time which was pretty funny. All in all, a lovely home, perfect for relaxation and tranquillity.
We really enjoy the time.
Nice place to have a short break. Very beautiful and comfortable. Unfortunately, it is total fire ban period, we didn't get the chance to bake pizza and BBQ. We are consider to come back in winter break, so we can have homemade pizza, and have fire place on.
Cherry and Martin were the best hosts, made us feel welcome and at home.We had the best stay
Highly recommend anyone to stay in this piece of paradise
Great farm stay
Perfect place to get away with all creature comforts of home
Peaceful & Relaxing
What a beautiful place to relax and unwind.The scenery was beautiful and so much bird life. The homestead inside and out is absolutely gorgeous and so homely, our dogs also enjoyed their stay and we all relaxed by the combustion heater for the evenings. The outdoor area with the pizza oven for cooking was great along with the fire bucket to keep the chill off.
A return visit to stay there again when over that way is definitely on the cards , thanks Cherry & Marty a credit to you both.
I hope things are going well for you now. Thankyou so much for telling me you feelings and how healing it was for you to be here at such a very emotional time.
Beautiful homestead with a view. The homestead had all the amenities to make for a comfortable, relaxing stay. Highlights of the trip were hugging baby goats and making wood fired pizzas. Cherry was a pleasure to deal with. We would love to go back again soon, I didn't want to leave!
Laura Thankyou for your kind comments.
Baby goats are doing really well. Hope you’re feeling very relaxed now despite being back at work! 🌸
