Barn Country

Thanks Crumpler for supporting this story.
Our three day getaway consisted of a night under the stars, camping at “Heathcote-Graytown National Park” just outside the town of Heathcote. We then spent two nights in “The Barn” just 10 minutes from the town centre. With lots to see and do around Heathcote we were never bored. We relaxed, we drank, we ate. Being at The Barn made it easy to imagine what life could be like in the country, and I think one day, that’s where you will find us....

Where We Stayed


The Barn at Heathcote

The Barn, surrounded by peace, quiet and a few Kangaroos bouncing around, was more than enough to put our minds and souls at ease. So much character was within the four walls of the old girl. From an open fireplace, to every book under the sun on the bookshelf, to flags and memorabilia from the owners lives. There was plenty of wood to split and put on the fire outside to roast marshmallows on, not to mention a bbq for the warmer nights....

One of several waterfalls along the Campaspe River, where if you're lucky, you’ll find the water flowing off the side of the cliff into a chilly deep pool....
