Unique farmstay accommodation. You can feed farm animals, many bushwalking trails, pottery lessons, lovely cafe serving fresh wood fired pizza and home made gelato among other menu items. The staff are warm and friendly. It is a farm so expect some dust and flies, making it an authentic experience. Maria and her family have created a little oasis in The Pilliga.

2/10 Poor

DO NOT STAY AT THIS PROPERTY. We arrived late to find no lighting, no room numbers and people in the room that we had been told would be ours. There is no after-hours contact number and no phone reception at the property. We had to drive 35km back into town at 11pm after a frightening experience and were lucky to find alternative accommodation. These people are unsafe and inconsiderate. DO NOT GO THERE.
