Jane & Tim are very hospitable, down to earth & friendly people. They truly go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. We stayed 2 nights in the "Boobook" cabin which was very luxurious and well appointed with fantastic views. The cabins are well away from each other on this extensive property. The farm tour is very interesting,... More

I have written my review in January 2017. I cannot believe that the comment I wrote was erased. Anyway, this was a terrible experience there. Should you want to meet the arrogrant and impolite owner like Tim, please go there.

We have 10 persons and booked the farm tour and BBQ lunch for approximate 3 hours. It included sheep shearing, working farm dogs led by Tim. He introduced how we can distinguish the quality of wool. After that, we had a BBQ lunch prepared by Tim and Jane. Then had a forest walk led by Jane. She gave us enough... More

I've been to many sanctuary/farm visits in quite a few parts of Australia before but I would say this one is the best experience of all. The sheep herding show was wonderful! The herding dogs Blue & Billy are so smart! I didn't expect I could get so close to the sheep without being asked to sit down on audience... More

The farm stay at this farm is actually several self-contained cottages situated at a some distance from each other. We stayed only one night but we wished we had made arrangements to stay another day or two. The cottage comes complete with a real wood-burning fireplace with tinder and wood ready to be lit. There are several DVD titles available... More

The farm was very isolated. It was a whole new experience for city living guys like us. The cottage we stayed had a very self contained facilities for cooking and laundry. The SPA bathing was definitely a plus.The diary products, eggs, orange juice, home made bread was very fresh and heartful. It was a 20 minutes drive to the nearest... More

Great way to bond with family, in a cottage and doing BBQ together. Hosts were well prepared and helpful, had our dinner and breakfast all ready and stored in the fridge by the time we arrive.

The people at Curringa Farm were very warm and friendly and you're at once made to feel very welcome. Our one-night stay at the farm house (that could fit 9 but we were only a family of 6) was very comfortable and cozy. It was surprisingly a very cold summer night (was snowing around the area, in fact), but the... More

We stayed a night in the "Over the Back" cottage. What a lovely place to stay. A little log cabin surrounded by acres of scenic farmland overlooking a river and rolling hills. We could have stayed for a lot longer, and we will definitely be back. The owners of the accommodation were very helpful and friendly. We saw an echidna,... More
