Explore the property, there is a map for you to use. We do go right to the top of Mount Breckin but the going is very tough. Plenty of easier strolls and great views can be gained from following the tracks around the property.
There is lots of wild life around - Kangaroos, Wallabies and an amazing array of birdlife.
You are welcome to walk around the property but please keep out of paddocks the cows are in - they can get rather excited when they see people and can be a bit boisterous. And please leave gates as you found them - if closed please keep them closed if open then leave them open.
Strictly no access to the machinery shed or garage - farming equipment can be dangerous.
The dams while inviting looking are very deep and very cold so in the interest of safety do not swim in them. There is a lovely swimming spot in the river down the road at East Gresford Show ground.
Interaction with guests
We do not live on the property and most of the time we will not be around. We breed cattle so if we have calves being born you may see people around the paddocks keeping an eye on them.
We are only a phone call away if you have any questions and we have good neighbours about if an emergency does occur.
Other things to note
There is only Telstra network for phone reception. Phone reception is either excellent or not working at all ... sometimes switching phones off and back on helps. Sorry no Wi-Fi. TV reception is usually OK but at times can suffer interference - best to turn off the electronic devices and enjoy the clean country air and make sure you check out the stars at night they are amazing!

Our family are based in Sydney but we are fortunate to have a farm in the Hunter Valley 2 hours from home, where we breed beef cattle. We enjoy a few days every week up there looking after our cattle and when we are not on the farm we share our farmhouse with other families and groups.
