Our train facilities have been hand-built using recycled and upcycled materials. We rummaged around Sydney to find 100-year-old timbers from a house in Balmain, old mirrors from the inner-west, an old laundry tub from the central coast, a claw bath from Gladesville, and old doors from dad's shed.

Local Area Info -
I will send you a list of places to visit, things to do and where the eat.
All the locals best-of-the-best secrets.

Road access is by standard 2WD & 4WD but you will need detailed directions. Our road is not suitable for motorbikes. Kids ride their horses on our road so keep an eye out for them. Our road is a dirt track road surrounded by potholes and thick bush. It is steep but only in a small section. It looks rough but any standard 2WD car can get up it. Go Get cars are fine. Low-modified cars are not suitable.

We have limited wi-fi, and there is no mobile reception in Laguna, which is a great excuse to unwind from it all - get your digital detox here. If you pop up to the house, we can sort out the wi-fi, and we have a fixed landline phone.

We are here for your arrival & departure and to show you around. I will give you a quick tour of our off-grid farm, show you how to feed the alpacas, and get some great photos.

This is a working farm, and our house is located up the hill behind the train. You will see us on the paddocks attending to our daily chores. You are welcome to hang out with the alpacas. They will love that!

Little Valley Farm is a boutique alpaca farm in Laguna in the Wollombi Valley (Lower Hunter Valley). We are a boutique alpaca farm. We focus on having a small and sustainable footprint and extending this to guests through the rustic glamping experience in a 1950s Red Rattler train and our new Shearers Studio. Every part of our cabin structure is upcycled and handmade from unwanted but beautiful materials around Sydney. The train comes with a hand-built wood-fired pizza oven that is a delight to experience. Nothing about this place is over the top, but the focus is on 'deep relaxation' through connection to the farm, and the surrounding bushland creates a rare luxury for our guests. It's nothing like a hotel; your room opens to a beautiful landscape of alpacas. This beautiful little farm is off-grid and has no mobile phone reception. It's a perfect experience for eco-conscious and adventurous souls. Don't come to be seen, but to kick back and hang out with the Alpaca and native wildlife. There is no greater luxury than sustainability. Stay up to date on life at the farm via our LITTLE VALLEY FARM socials. Euan and Daniela

          Yoga With The Alpacas

          The train offers many games and activities, they have two yoga mats on board which I certainly took advantage of.

            Plant A Tree

            At the Farm, they encourage each visitor to plant a tree. This was a great way to help contribute to our Mother Earth. We planted five eucalyptus trees that had all come from seeds being blown into the shed guttering and potted for planting. We felt proud to put our name to these bad boys and with rain on the forecast for the next couple of days our chances of seeing them big and strong when we return was high. An amazing way to support a carbon-neutral off-grid farm....

              Feeding The Alpacas

              An amazing experience I will never forget. There's nothing quite like getting up close and personal with some of the most cutest animals in the world. Not only would they feed right out of my hand, they even came up to the bath.

              I don't think many people could say that they feed Alpacas while having a bath. A surreal once-in-a-lifetime opportunity I will treasure forever.
