A vintage railway carriage dating all the way back to 1908 can be your home on this eco-friendly, glamping farm stay near Perth and Guilford, and just on the edge of the famous Swan Valley wine region. The accommodation is appealingly retro, cosy and comfortable, the owners are friendly and there is a lot to do and see around the farm where you’ll find equally friendly cows, less friendly, perhaps, bees, as well as ducks, hens, fruit trees and Read more [...]
Kerriley Park is a homely, family friendly, self catering farm stay in Yelverton, Western Australia, between the Margaret River and Busselton rural holiday regions. It offers cosy and comfortable self catering cottages on their small friendly farm which also has 75 acres of wildlife filled native bushland to explore.
The farm stay has a choice of three bedroom, air conditioned, cottages that can sleep up to 10 people. They are fully self catering with a well equipped kitchen, and an open plan dining/lounge area with a flat screen TV and ipod docking station. Outside they all have a nice little verandah area with plenty of seating and outdoor dining space, and you’ll have a communal barbecue at your disposal too. There is a small swimming pool in the gardens too, though its really more for splashing about in than actually swimming, and there is also a children’s adventure playground.
The animals are the main attraction for most guests though, and especially children. Every morning the kids can be given a bag of food to feed the animals with, animals which include, goats, sheep, hens, emus and ponies. All of them are friendly and well used to visitors.
There is plenty of wild bush around too and guests are free to head off bushwalking as they please and where they are in with a good chance of spotting some of the abundant local wildlife.
The farmstay is south of Perth, W.A., between two of Australia’s best known rural holiday regions; Margaret River and Busselton. Margaret River is especially famous for two things that usually don’t go hand in hand; surfing and wine making. Its coastline has some of Australia’s best surf while inland lies some of the country’s best vineyards. Other types of farming go on here too and the area is becoming something of an agritourism hot spot.
Busselton is known for its sheltered bay and beach, its humpback whale population and its coral. The beachfront has an iconic 19th century jetty, the Busselton Jetty, a mile and a half long, it ends at the Underwater Observatory where you can comfortably check out the amazing coral life that lies beneath the water. To the northeast there is the Tuart Forest Park, the largest remaining pure tuart forest (a species of Eucalyptus) in the world and a great place for long bush walks.
The journey south from Perth to Kerriley Park farmstay should take no more that two to two and a half hours.
Note: There is no WiFi!
