Soak up the majestic views and tranquility - we are on a hill at one of the highest points of Scotts Creek.
Enjoy a taste of real farm life on a real Australian working farm which runs beef cattle, young dairy cows and some sheep.
Get to know our farm pets, the camel (Alana), sheep (Sam, Bobster and Ray), a goat (Acca), a horse (Frannie), dogs (Nikki + Tess), alpacas (Innie, Bronte, Andy, Fred + Bazza), a cat (Lily), two pigs (Beatrice + Cosmo), a beef steer (Bruno) who weighs a tonne (literally!) and loooooves loaves of bread and chocolate Tim Tam biscuits.
Join us at the pet paddock at 9.30am daily for feed time where you will get the experience of a lifetime, handfeeding all our pets for about three hours. You can walk in with and talk to all our animals as they adore visits from guests. They are all very inquisitive with individual personalities and come up close to investigate.
Take bush walks bursting with native flora and fauna. Sharp eyes along bush tracks often can spot a koala or two in the tall gum trees, or on special occasions, kangaroos bounding over the back paddocks. Native birds include irridescent parrots, rosellas, cockatoos, galahs, willy wagtails, kookaburras and magpies.
Learn about Bellevue’s history – we’ve kept the original historical woolshed, built in the early 1950s, where we used to shear up to 3,000 sheep annually.
Take a ride in the tractor when we feed out hay to the cattle.
Curl up with a favorite book in front of the roaring wood fire within an exposed brick hearth.
Cook up a true blue Aussie BBQ using mouth-watering produce you can easily pick up locally.
