The sanctuary
A must stay in Jurien bay area
Cannot recommend staying at Loveland for wildlife enough. A standout experience of my trip in Australia that I will remember forever. Ken was there to welcome us from the moment we drove in the gate and introduced us to all the lovely kangaroos (that he knows by name!) Ken also gave us food to feed the kangaroos. Had the most peaceful sleep here under the stars and woke up to a beautiful sunrise. Such a surreal experience, couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Ken for being so welcoming and for the great chats. 10/10

Best Trip!
We had the absolute best time. Ken was super easy to communicate with and ensured everything was in order for us. Allan, the caretaker, was also super awesome and answered all of our kangaroo questions and told us all about the animals on the farm and gave us some excellent movie recommendations. The kangaroos were amazing and blew our expectations. They were so friendly and fun to see how comfortable they were with us. We had such a great experience overall and would definitely recommend staying at Loveland!

A Gem in Western Australia
During our three-week adventure across Western Australia, Loveland Farmstay was the highlight of our accommodations. This gem was easy to locate via Google Maps, and it also provided the perfect camp spot for our large campervan. The warmth and hospitality extended by Ken, the host, and the caretaker of the property, made us feel incredibly welcome from the moment we arrived. Ken took the time to educate us about the local kangaroos and even provided us with food to feed the less shy ones that roamed freely around our campsite. In the evening, he went out of his way to set up a campfire and assisted with our barbecue, which made it a true Australian outback experience. One of the unforgettable highlights was ofcourse the kangaroos; being able to feed them in the afternoon and waking up to find them lingering near our camp was truly magical. Additionally, a stroll through Ken's expansive property offered glimpses of more wild kangaroos in their natural habitat. The night sky at Loveland Farmstay was another breathtaking aspect. For anyone planning a trip through Western Australia, I highly recommend making a stop at Loveland Farmstay. It's not just a place to stay; it's an amazing experience that connects you with the beauty and wildlife of the area.

Huge property, very private.
Ken is very accommodating and flexible on requests. Communication is quick and smooth. The roos are very friendly but too much at times they invade the camp site. Watch out for ticks.
