Come and see the night sky away from light pollution. Listen to the creek, the birds, watch our herd of horses play! 

Reconnect with nature on our beautiful 25 acre property in Silvan.  

Plenty of firewood to gather - and a fire pit to enjoy.  

We have open paddocks, majestic gums, autumn colours, birds galore and a small creek running through. Our property is an animal sanctuary. We do what we can to provide a home for beautiful creatures that may not otherwise have had the life that we think they deserve.  You can meet our friendly horses, goats, cows, and currently a very wee piglet, when we are around - otherwise they can entertain you through the fence.

Dogs are welcome if you can guarantee to keep them away from our farm animals 

There is even room to bring your horse and use our arena if you arrange in advance.

Children our very welcome and time with our ponies can be arranged in advance.

We are in a wonderful position of being at the gateway of wine country! Less than 10 minutes drive from the the first estates.  We are also 10 minutes drive from the Dandenong Ranges, with all of its stunning bush walking and gardens, and 10 minutes drive from the Warburton Trail - a fantastic place to run, ride and cycle - very safe for bike riding with children with unusual cafes along the way.

Harriet and her family gave us a warm welcome and showed us around. Their farm is an amazing place to relax for a few days surrounded by farm animals and massive trees!

Thanks for having us! :D

We had a lovely stay at Ferndale Farm. Harriet was a great and accommodating host. The location is great being just an hour drive from Melbourne and a short drive from a number of wineries. Also very close to a number of mountain biking/walking tracks near to the reservoir.

Had a lovely time camping at Harriet’s gorgeous property! Got a nice grassy spot overlooking the paddock and got to watch the animals doing their thing and patting the ones that came up to the fence. There were a couple of other groups there and we all had our own space, Harriet and fam gave us a tour of the property when we arrived and then left us to our own devices which was perfect. Would recommend!

Harriet and her family have been nothing but lovely and accommodating. Our children loved the ability to ride horses and feed lovely animals, and we loved the privacy and immersion into nature.
