Imagine waking up to the sound of kookaburra's, the horses and sheep grazing in the paddock at your front door as the sun and mist rise over the forest.
The smell of freshly brewed coffee or hand crafted artisan tea. Putting a log on the fire and jumping back into bed to read while you enjoy a lazy morning.
You might then go for a walk or bike ride in the Wombat State Forest with the fresh eucalypt permeating the air. That's just the start of your day at The Conversion!
The Conversion is a converted shearing shed which has been lovingly crafted into a 2 bedroom cosy cabin retreat. Located on the edge of the Wombat State Forest in the picturesque Macedon Ranges, The Conversion is surrounded by farmland and bushland and is part of our working sheep farm. At the end of the driveway, a world of bush walking and bike riding tracks open up before you. If you prefer quiet country lanes, we have that too!
There are sheep, horses, chooks and dogs who make up our farm, and lots of native wildlife who come and go.
Trentham and the surrounding quaint Central Victorian towns are all within a short country drive. Fabulous scenery, food & wine, shopping and fresh country air all abound. We promise that you will leave feeling digitally detoxed, relaxed and connected.
