All of my family had an amazing time here. The kids loved the space and the animals and everything was of the highest quality. Thank you so much for your attention and care it was well noticed and very appreciated.
Thanks Jodie. It's always good to hear there is plenty to do for everyone in the family.
Beautiful place. Very clean and value for money. We had a great experience.

Thank you Ashan.
Overall we had a great stay at Rushy Creek farm. The outdoor fire is amazing and well used throughout our stay. The main house was comfortable and reasonable clean. Bedding was comfortable and good quality. Kids loved bunks.
Despite really enjoying our stay there were some disappointing aspects and improvements that are needed.
The second living area (like self contained unit) was completely unusable, which unfortunately was part of the reason we booked here to house two families. This space had a disgusting smell which didnt go and when we folded out the couch it had mouse droppings everywhere on it. We had to all stay in main house which we managed only as noth families shared with younger kids, but when u pay for 2 living spaces...
Also surprised by no firewood cut prior...id expect for arrival wood to be ready. We happily cut for our time there and left full stack on leaving.
Overall really enjoyed our stay but felt letdown by the above mentioned.
I appreciate your feedback Jayne. We have rectified the situation with a "commercial grade" clean of the West Wing. Also there is supposed to be cut firewood left for guests. I will follow this up also.
A quiet retreat
The property is spacious and airy. It gets hot during the day, but quickly cools off at night when you open the massive window doors (all with fly screens). There are a lot of flies (even in April) and some managed to get in, but we had fly swats for that. A large and well stocked kitchen. The biggest TV I have ever seen, except from being in shops. Small, comfortable bed rooms. We didn't use the West Wing, but did not like this so much. Not a nice smell - but would allow you to expand to allow 9 people in beds! The carpet in the main room was comfy, but fluffed up easily when our boys lay on it to play board games. We had to vacuum the place twice in our five days due to the dust and fluff. The outside area is gorgeous and we were there every evening. Big outside dining table, and sofa to lounge on (seen in the photo) with a view of the cow paddocks. We enjoyed playing the Finska game on the drive and played badminton every day. We were worried that this property might be too remote, but actually it is fine. Seven minute drive to a petrol station/shop and near Augusta for some splendid walks and beaches. (We loved Flinders Bay, Hamelin Bay and the local beaches. Rays everywhere! )Only disappointing thing is that we could not safely go running anywhere from the property. The main road is actually quite busy with very large lorries, and there is no quiet sideroad/path that we found that we could run on. Coming from Singapore, where running is always a chore in the humid climate, this was a shame. But this is outweighed by the tranquility and 'feel' of the property. We very much enjoyed staying here and my boys were wowed by the blackness of the night. We were able to see the milky way every night, and we all loved that!
Thank you for a detailed review. We are always looking at ways of improving the amenities for guests, and this helps us a lot. We have since given the West Wing a commercial grade clean as it can go for weeks without being used. We will also bring forward plans to put walking/running paths in the bushland area of the farm. Thanks again for the feedback.
Everything You Need To Relax And Get Away From It All!
My husband and 2 children had a beautiful stay here. The only problem was not being able to stay long enough! I could live here! So good I wish it was mine! A good, rustic but modern eye for decor with all of the right touches. The outside bath is heaven!! The linens are fresh and new and the Nespresso machine is the icing on the cake to start my morning by the outdoor fire. Heaven. Thank you, Tracy!!
Thanks so much Shonna for that feedback. We have tried to create a peaceful, rural environment with a few luxuries. It's wonderful to hear that you really enjoyed it. We hope you do come back!
A very enjoyable stay, great outlook and very relaxing, close to places to visit.
Accommodation and facilities are excellent, everything in good condition, a vast array of cooking utensils, glasses, plates etc and everything in good working order. A variety of places to visit and replenishment supplies only a short distance away.
The Blackwood River is 2 kilometres from the property. It is a beautiful spot for swimming kayaking and fishing. There are BBQ facilities and a boatramp.
Beautiful Hamelin Bay is 15 minutes drive away. Stingrays come close to the shore to the south of the boatramp and are always popular with visitors .
Whale watching in Augusta, which is also 25 minutes away, is also popular with visitors.
Glenarty Road Winery and Hamelin Bay Winery are 5 minutes away. They are high quality winemakers with cellar door wine tasting and good food.
