Yes, children are most welcome, but we do have some rules.
We have fold out beds available for 2 or our cabins. Our York Gum cabin will sleep 2 adults and one child.
Our Salmon Gum cabin will sleep 2 adults and 2 children.
Please note that adding additional fold out beds in the cabins will make the interior quite cosy, providing less room to move about inside. There is plenty room outside around the cabins and on the farm to explore.
Here are the rules: Children MUST be supervised at all times and please ensure they stay around your designated cabin so they do not disturb other guests in other cabins and most importantly they are not to be left unattended. We are an operating farm so please understand we cannot have children running around without close supervision. Please ask Lisa where children are allowed during your visit and these rules must be adhered to, or we may have to terminate your stay early. Please respect your cabin and surrounding garden area, especially any newly planted gardens.

We have excellent coverage via the Telstra mobile network. We do not have WIFI available.
We are centrally located to many towns:

Our cabins are too small to cater for larger families, our largest cabin, Salmon Gum can accommodate 2 Adults and 2 Children. If your family consists of younger children, toddlers or babies, we may be able to fit you in, however you will need to discuss your booking with Lisa. Please note that if we do accept more than 4 guests in one cabin it will become quite cosy inside roomwise. Alternatively, if you are travelling with a third Adult, you may want to consider booking a second cabin.
If you cancel your booking within 7 days to your arrival date, your deposit (value of one night’s stay) will be forfeited. If you cancel your booking prior to 7 days before arrival, we can offer you a refund less a $25 Admin Fee.
If you are ballooning in Northam and have advised us at the time of your booking, and your flight is cancelled due to unsafe weather conditions, we can offer you a free cancellation and hold your credit until you reschedule your balloon flight.
Farming is seasonal, so depending on what time of year you visit, you may get to see the crops being sown during late April through until mid June.
November and December you may see the crops being harvested. We run sheep, so there may be times where we are rounding up the sheep to bring them up to the shearing shed for shearing.
Our cattle may also be in the nearby paddock, they are great to watch and observe as they graze, with some cows with calves. Many other farming activities are done during the year, so there is usually something to see.
We recommend you bring some warm clothes with you during the winter months, as it can get a little colder than Perth. Especially when you are outdoors.
Make sure you bring sun protection during the warmer months too, especially a hat.
