Things to do
On the farm
Relax on the verandahs, next to the fire, in the games room. Walk around the farm to see the sheep, kangaroos and birds. Walk along the signed bushland trails to see seasonal wildflowers (mainly in the spring). See farm activities as they happen like shearing, sheep work, haymaking.
Tranquil setting, beautiful walks.

Near the farm
Walk to the Porongurup Shop and tearooms down the lane for coffee, breakfast or lunch and for basic groceries. Walk across the Bolganup Road to Jingalla winery for wine tasting or drive 5 mins to the much awarded Thai Restaurant. Walk or drive into the National Park for easy to medium walks in the beautiful Porongurup Range.
Drive to the Stirling Ranges (30 minutes) for harder climbs. Drive to the beautiful, pristine beaches of the south coast (30 minutes) and see Albany, Denmark, and Walpole with its Tree Top Walk (day trips).
