The farm is every kid’s dream. The house is cosy – warmed by mom’s cooking and pop’s burning wood fire. The hills are a safe place to play, to explore, to create new stories and live their dreams to the full. They are never happier than with muddy boots, feeding the animals and the wind tousling their hair. Freedom. Of course there were the chores, but that’s how they got to feel important and know they are needed. There was time for work and time for play, a perfect balance.
At Hillview Farmstay, we aim for our guests to experience the dream of living the farm experience. Our aim is to provide:
- Families a place where children can freely interact with farm animals and immerse in the beautiful rural Australia.
- Extended family and friends a central place to catch-up, create beautiful memories and venue to celebrate special occasions
- Travellers a better alternative to rest and break-up trip, with Hillview Farmstay’s convenient location along Hume Highway, expansive space, beautiful views and numerous hands-on activities.
Here are the Hillview Farmstay advantages:
- Ideal location: Strategically located along the Hume Highway between Sydney and Melbourne making it a perfect spot to rest after a long drive.
