Things To Do
There's lots of see and do at the farm, especially for children, who can play in the wide open spaces and learn all about farm animals and where our food comes from.

We have a hay ride around the property that all the children (and lots of adults) love. Every day there are animals to feed, eggs to collect and cook for breakfast, milking to be done and if you are lucky you may see a calf being born. We often have small animals we are hand rearing, such as lambs and goats. Everyone can have a try at bottle feeding.

All our cattle work is done with horses, so you may see some mustering during your stay. For group bookings of 6 adults of more, we can show you how to get cattle ready for the show ring, including washing and blow drying and teaching to lead.

With 500 acres to explore you can enjoy a relaxing or strenuous walk around the property. Set back from the road about a kilometre, means that your children are safe from traffic.

If you want to explore the local area, then Gloucester is a great place to visit, offering cafes, restaurants and quaint shops. You can canoe in the Gloucester River, head up the road to the horse riding ranch, climb the Bucketts ranges, or visit the World Heritage Listed Barrington Tops.

If you are keen to stay on the farm, we can organise our local massage therapist for relaxing or remedial treatments, here at Ashmar. Or you can visit the beautiful open garden at Earlyn, just down the road to see the beautiful flowers and plants, then stay for a light lunch.

In the evening, it's a great time to relax on the verandah and take in the beautiful night sky, which is totally unspoilt. If you don't want to cook, we offer a home cooked three course evening meal, which can be served after the children have gone to bed, allowing you to make the most of your evening together.

Whatever you decide to do at Ashmar, we are sure you will enjoy your stay - so many of our guests come back to visit time and time again.
