We started off with ideas of grandeur, exploring every nook and cranny the surrounding area had to offer, but with the mercury reaching the high 30’s, we quickly surrendered to sprawling in the hammocks on the shady deck that spans the entire length of our 1950’s era locomotive, looking out over a basin of green pasture hemmed in on all sides by sprawling native bush.
The bathtub was perfect for a refreshingly cold dip throughout the day, and evenings gazing out across the picturesque landscape as sunset melted into a blanket of stars. We fell asleep to raindrops meandering across the rooftop and slept in past 8 for the first time in years!
Our hosts were amazing and spoilt us with fresh eggs and tomatoes straight off the vine. So with bellies full, we planted a few eucalyptus trees and spent the day discovering the property. The recent rain had really greened everything up and wildlife was everywhere, we had both never seen a wombat or a goanna in the wild, so they were real highlights.
And who could forget the alpacas? They are right on your doorstep; each one has its own quirky character and will eat right out of your hand.
The little valley farm was just a magical off the grid experience, with everything you need (pizza oven included) and nothing you don’t. We left relaxed, with a sense of calm hanging over us that I can’t wait to return and tap into again....
Things We Did
- Food & Drink
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....
