Time to get away and take a break for yourself or with the children and what better way to do it than at a farmstay accommodation.

So where are the best farmstays around Melbourne and Victoria?

We would love to hear your favourite farmstay accommodations.
Can you recommend some to share with us.

To get the ball rolling here are a few suggestions.

In the snow fields of Victoria, in the picturesque town of Bright, is located Aspens Springs Farmstay.

In the goldfields, you can get away on vacation on a traditional country property with 3 self contained farmhouses for small or extended family groups at Lochinver Farm.

If something larger takes your fancy, perhaps you would like to stay on a real working farm that is over 6000 acres.

Hanericka is a wonderful opportunity for you to have the complete farm and country experience whilst still enjoying all of the comforts of home, including modern fresh rooms with ensuite, electric blankets and air conditioning.

You and the children can participate and assist with many daily farm activities including horse riding, feeding the chickens, ducks, pigs, lambs, geese, alpacas and milking the goats.

The kids will delight in jumping on board the back of a tractor for a hayride around the farm to watch the sheep and cattle.

A Hanericka Farmstay depends on season and weather, you may be able to join in egg collection, feeding and caring for farm animals, horse riding (conditions apply), ue/hay rides, header/tractor rides, sheep shearing, harvesting, cropping, hay making, hay carting, sheep work, cattle work and droving
