We're nestled in the foothills of Victoria’s beautiful Strezlecki Ranges, on our own hill. Peaceful and private accommodation for groups of up to 40. We never mix groups here - you have the whole place to yourself for the duration of your stay.
Primarily used as a Retreat venue, we host gatherings, workshops and retreats.
'Has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world'
'The energy here is amazing'
Not my words - these are quotes from retreat guests.
A couple of acres of private garden and recreation spaces.
Large saltwater swimming pool.
Undercover BBQ area with open fire.
Mongolian Yurt (sleeps 4), gypsy wagon (sleeps 4) and Swaggies Hut (sleeps 5) also available for separate hire.
Working farm with horses, sheep, cattle, goats, lots of chooks and two emus. You can visit unstocked farm paddocks unescorted, or all paddocks of the 40 acres of farm escorted (we insist on escorting you to paddocks with stock in them to reduce stress to the animals and to keep you safe).
Wombats, echidnas, wallabies, rosellas, cockatoos, galahs, kookaburras, magpies, boobook owls, wedgetail eagles and king parrots are frequent visitors. A pair of blue-tongue lizards live in the compost heap.
Interaction with guests
Absolutely available to help you with queries, walk around the farm with you, or join you for a drink around the BBQ. Absolutely happy to stay away from you and let you enjoy the space in privacy.
Other things to note
There's supermarkets and food stores in the neighbouring towns (10 minutes away), and you can buy seasonal produce from our chemical-free gardens. Or ask us to cater for you (price ranges from $30-$60 per person per day). Annie is a competent 'country cook', not a chef, so it's homecooked meals you can expect to enjoy.
Please act at all times with commonsense and respect towards the property, the animals that live there, and the surroundings that nature provides.
That doesn't mean you can't stay up all night telling tall tales around the campfire. Plenty do!
Or make a bit of noise. Plenty do! Though noise that reaches the neighbours is not OK. Music needs to be turned down and taken inside at midnight.
Having lots of fun is absolutely fine. As long as you understand that you are not welcome to harm anyone or anything on the property though idiotic behaviour.
We can't serve alcohol, but of course you're welcome to bring your own. Beer bongs and other implements designed to get you ridiculously drunk are not welcome here.
Smoking is fine in designated outdoor (undercover) areas.
Sorry but we can't allow pets on a working farm.
We're not suitable for large groups of children unless you have plenty of adults on board. So please talk to us about your group before booking.

Welcome! I am your host and the steward of this beautiful land.
I believe that if we touch Mother Nature, and are touched by her, we will walk more gently on the Earth.
I hope you will enjoy touching nature here.
