About our Quarters

The quarters we provide for our shearers during shearing season are used to host guests during the majority of the year. They consist of three buildings.
Still retaining the authentic farm stay charm, the old building consists of a fully equipped kitchen with two gas stoves, a microwave and a large fridge/freezer. The dining room adjoining the kitchen has an open wood fire place to warm up those cold winter nights. The laundry next to the toilet on the front porch provides not only a washing machine, but also two showers and a large sink for hand washing. It is adjoined by shaded outdoor areas with a gas BBQ. Next to the dining area you can find a bedroom with a queen size bed. If you book this room as a couple, the whole building will be your private space.The main sleeping quarters include six different sized and equipped bedrooms suitable for families and larger groups, a large lounge room with a huge shaded porch area and an amenities block with three separate bathrooms.Just a few steps up the hill you can find a renovated Ecohut with two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and the other with three bunks.There is a unique fire pit area cut into the hill above the Quarters. Top off a wonderful country experience with dinner and drinks around an open fire before bedding down.
