About Our Farm

Dead Horse Creek is one of two permanent spring-fed creeks flowing through our farm situated in picturesque Neerim East in a valley in the southern foothills of Victoria's eastern ranges. We have enough rainfall (about a metre a year in non-drought years) to remain green all through summer and, with our two permanent creeks, we manage to escape the Australian archetype of the "Wide Brown Land" during summer. walnut hull opening

We are on undulating country at about 270 metres above sea level. We are adjacent to native forest on our south with open farms on the others. While the cottage (and new house) are on a ridge looking down on farmland and forest, we are surrounded on all sides by a ring of slightly higher hills that makes you that you are far away from the cares of the wider world.

Today, the original farm cottage dating from the 1890s has been extensively renovated without losing it original quirky charm. Guests can now stay in the old farm cottage by bookings though Vrbo (previously Homeaway that was previously Stayz). If you are interested in spending some time in a rural paradise, all the details are here.
