A classic repurposed concrete water tank on a working sheep farm gives the adventurous visitor a unique experience! The tank, adjacent to the shearing shed comfortably accommodates 2 people in a queen bed. The bedding is sourced from our premium wool bedding label, Our Wool Naturally. A large sliding glass window leads your eye to stunning views over the Gippsland Lakes. Attached to the shearing shed is a small kitchen and ensuite for guests exclusive use. Our paddock to plate lamb business, Forge Creek Lamb will provide guests with a complementary lamb meat pack for two, to BBQ. This unique facility is used by the shearing team 5 times a year and in between we offer stays to family, friends and the Riparide community....

Additional Information

You may arrive by helicopter, boat or car!

Sheep may be grazing close by!

The kitchen and ensuite are attached to the shearing shed for exclusive use by The Tank guests during their visit. The Tank bedroom is not under the same roofline as the kitchen and ensuite so an umbrella is provided should it happen to rain during your stay!

The tank is a facility that is used by the shearing team for specified times during the farming calendar but for the remainder of the year, it is available to Riparide guests.

Sorry pet lovers, but pets are not allowed for bio-security reasons.

As an operational farm, guests may see or hear activity in the shearing shed, stockyards and paddocks.
