Cally has the most outstanding hospitality and goes the extra mile to allow you to experience the farm - from seeing the old shearers shed, rowing on the lake watching platypus, our kids feeding the calf, lamb, ducks and chickens and collecting the eggs. We loved staying in the …

Thank you, Debbie for your flattering review. It was certainly our pleasure sharing Rathmore & the sheer glee on your daughters' faces with the hens & collecting their breakfast eggs, makes my heart sing!!! Pleased the damper with "improvised" flour was such a success & the raspberry jam a hit with all the family! Warmest regards to you & your beautiful family. Cally

Thanks Julie & for being a delightful guest. We are pleased you could take a little time out, had a super snug & great night's sleep & spied a couple of platypus. I have added to the directions to Rathmore to make them clearer & we are adding to the signage so people don't get lost but it is difficult when GPS don't work perfectly here with the hills! A good old fashioned map is a good standby in the country or good to print out the map on the site!!! There are photos of the road with "Hollow Tree" from both directions on the site. Best wishes & hope you can visit again.

We had lovely spacious and warm sleeping quarters. The washroom was well equipped with a full sized bath and shower, washer and dryer, plus plenty of towels. The firepit was fantastic and we sat around it most nights toasting marshmallows. Cally was very generous with breakfast f…
