This is the second time we have holidayed at Mowbray Park. Both times we have visited with three families and stayed in one of the large, self-catering houses. We love that there are activities across the day - so you can choose to get involved in as much or as little as you like. The staff are all friendly and...

Blair and his team are fantastic hosts. Our family had a wonderful time. The farm reflects Blair's warmth and passion to make a positive contribution to humanity. Their animals are treated well, and with respect. We like how all the activities are included, with no surprising 'hidden extras'. Our kids (aged 7 and 2) loved the pony rides, kids club,...

Thank you very much Michael we had a great time too. When we have families come to farm ready to engage, learn and immerse themselves into our environment for a couple of days we get so much energy from that. We try to balance between outright fun, which is everything for the kids and a bit of learning which we...

We stayed at Mowbray Park for 3 nights during school holidays although I think 2 nights is adequate.

Thanks for your review, there is a lot there for us to take on board to help make improvements and fine tune.

This was our second visit to Mowbray Park and we loved it just as much this time around. 3 nights was perfect to experience what the farm has to offer. We stayed in the Majellan Lodge and had 2 separate bedrooms for us and the kids with a bathroom in between. Our 3 kids (16,11 and 9) were all old...

We had a fantastic time at Mombray Park over the long weekend, especially the kids as they loved cooking damper by the fire, riding ponies, canoeing, feeding alpacas, milking a cow and ALOT of tractor rides!! The farm is well run and very friendly, I really recommend a visit. It's surrounded by beautiful green spaces and the drive from Sydney...

We love the pony rides and feeding the horses and other animals in the farm. There are the cows feedings, rabbits petting, ducks etc. We also love the campfire at the bbq pit in the evenings. The food at the restaurant were delicious. It felt like home cooked meals. The view from the balcony of our lodge was out of...

It really is the reviews that help us with this, we are here everyday and sometimes you don't see the wood for the trees!

For our urban children, who think milk comes from a bottle, animals are scary, and who have rarely been able to run, play and explore without adults watching their every move, Mowbray Park offers an exceptional experience which can transform our city children view of the world forever. I believe it is more than just a 'fun and enjoyable time',...
