The homestead at Towrang Farm Stay is an original shearer's cottage, part of a larger landholding. Completely destroyed by fire the stone walls remained intact and the cottage was completely rebuilt recently to a luxurious country house.
The farm itself today occupies 25 acres with stock paddocks, lake and gardens and is surrounded by a rolling countryside of sheep and cattle farms with majestic views towards the horizon.
The cottage is accessed via a tree lined driveway from Towrang Road which is fully sealed to the Hume Highway.
The current owner has stocked the farm with 'rescued' animals which she has nursed back to health, including farm animals and retired racehorses. Her care for the animals has made them friendly to visitors who can have a guided tour of the farm and be shown how to interact with them.
Children and guests love petting or feeding the sheep, horses, geese and chickens and even doing some daily farm chores during their stay - including collecting the free range eggs for breakfast and locking up the chooks for the evening and letting them out in the morning. The resident cat is also friendly to children.
In season there is plenty of fresh fruit to be picked in the orchard and the dam is stocked with trout. (Fishing rods are supplied - catch your own dinner!)
The homestead itself is spacious and equipped with all conveniences for your stay. Three queen bedrooms cater for up to 6 guests, with a sofa lounge sleeping another two.
A fully stocked pantry in the large country kitchen has basic provisions - all you need to bring is the food for your meals.
There are lots of places in the garden and the wrap-around verandah to sit and relax plus a gas barbecue and table settings for al fresco meals.
Awaken to the sound of bird calls. Experience native fauna - kangaroos and wombats often pass by!
You will not find a more pleasant place for a getaway or holiday.
