Keen to get away and surround yourself with nature? These are some of the best farm retreats in Australia:
Wybalena Organic Farm, Byron Bay NSW
As if 170 acres of nature wasn’t enough, the yoga studio, infrared sauna, saltwater pool and an organic veggie patch ripe for the picking make this slice of heaven in Byron Bay an idyllic place to destress.
Tommerup’s Dairy Farm, Scenic Rim, QLD
This working dairy farm doesn’t just offer acres upon acres of space and a historic 1888 homestead to rest your weary head; it also gives you the true farm life experience where you can get hands-on by milking the cows or feeding the animals, if you so desire.
Rivendell, East Gippsland, VIC
Find serenity amongst the 200-tree orchard, truffière and stunning gardens on this working Angus beef farm. There’s also an on-site chef to keep you well-fed during your stay, and it's dog-friendly.
Warramba, Capertree Valley, NSW
A recently renovated sandstone farmhouse that’s owned by Seven Sunrise TV host Edwina Bartholomew and her husband Neil, Warramba is set on 100 acres in the Greater Blue Mountains area. You'll be breathing a relaxed sigh as soon as you arrive.
Settlers Rest Farmstay, Swan Valley, WA
In addition to the beautiful surroundings, this retreat offers farm enthusiasts the chance to get up close to horses, chickens, alpacas and more. Or, simply cosy up by the fireplace or chill out on the porch as you take in the clean country air.
Twamley Farm, Buckland, TAS
There is no shortage of space at this farm retreat; the 7000 acres offer the perfect playground for bush walking, trout fishing, mountain bike riding or simply sitting and doing absolutely nothing.
