Down Johanna Way
Just after we settled in, we began exploring the surroundings. Nestled amongst the hills, everywhere you look is nature at its finest. A lush valley with views of the ocean amongst the trees. 280 acres of working sheep farm surround you.
We wandered down to the idyllic pond and then to the veggie and herb garden to pick some herbs for dinner. We hung out outside on the deck, admiring the views whilst we ate. When night fell, the clear skies treated us to a spectacular show of the stars. The next morning our host Helen gave us a tour of the farm. We got to feed the donkey, ponies and alpacas. We picked fresh plums and met the chickens, who kindly gave us a few eggs. Later on, we visited Johanna beach just down the road, then the 12 Apostles and came home as the rain set in. With our son tucked away in his very own bunk bed, we lit the fire and settled into a cosy evening fireside.
Johanna River Farm is the sort of place you could spend all weekend and be perfectly content. It's abundant in natural beauty, and it's location make it so easy to venture out if you choose to....
