It has a huge range of accommodation on nearly 1000 acres of farm and bushland which is home to farm animals such as alpacas, sheep, cattle and hens as well as lots of local wildlife. There is a swimming pool and tennis courts in the gardens too.
The accommodation consists of farm cottages and lodges and two glamping safari tents. Check out all your options out on the booking page here.
The tents are cleverly designed as safari huts equipped with an outside veranda, and so don’t look much like tents until you get up close. The mainly wooden interiors are equally surprising; they are plush and stylish and though the tents are large they have a cosy, comfortable feel. Outside there is a veranda with table and chairs overlooking the vast farm.
The self catering, self contained cottages come with either one or two double bedrooms while the lodge has four double bedrooms and can be rented out as a whole unit or by the room.
All have that classic Aussie farm cottage look about them and are modern, clean, comfortable and well equipped inside.
All of the accommodation is self catering, with either your own kitchen or if just renting a room; a shared kitchen, but a good breakfast is provided every morning, included in the room rate, with continental options as well as classic bacon and eggs.
You can also order hearty, home-made classic meals to be cooked for you during the day, desserts, soups and salads too. They have plenty of options but request that you place your orders a few days in advance. BBQ packs, and things like wine and cheese platters can also be ordered and all the accommodation comes with barbecue facilities.
The property is a mix of farmland and bushland with the farm being home to alpacas, sheep, cattle and hens and the bushland to kangaroos and lots of other native wildlife.
Guests are welcome to wander around and meet some of the animals and can partake in tasks such as feeding. There is a swimming pool in the gardens and a tennis court too.
Hillview is pet friendly, though pets are not allowed if renting a room at the lodge so as to not disturb other guests. Horses are also welcome with a on site 8-12 acre paddock for them to roam around in.
Note: It’s isolated, and the accommodation has no WiFi!
Hillview Farm Stay is 33kms south of the old pioneer town of Gundagai, 50km from Wagga Wagga and around the same from historic Tumut, known as the gateway to the Snowy Mountains.
It also lies roughly equidistance between Sydney (4hrs) and Melbourne (4.5 hrs) and is for many is a nice way to break up the journey between the two cities. And, if you’re driving a Tesla you’ll be pleased to know Hillside farm has two destination chargers.
WHAT OTHER GUESTS SAY:
“This is an excellent place to relax your mind and do “nothing”. Drink wine, enjoy some BBQ, swim, walk around the farm and play with the little animals. The staff here are over the top in their hospitality. Special mention to David, who took us around the farm in his buggy and “arranged” kangaroos and “spitting” llamas for our entertainment. A very memorable day spent in Australia. Thanks again guys !!!….”
“Lovely staff who were wonderful with the kids. They loved seeing and feeding the animals. The buggy ride around the farm was a highlight. Staff are very focused on making sure the kids have a good time. Lovely facilities with pool, pool table and games in the common area….”
