Previously a permanent home to sheep and cattle, Galwiji Homestead now provides a substantial plantation of sugar gums with periodic visits from farm animals.
A lovely large home with all the facilities available, eg. kitchen, games, walks etc. Close to all major attractions. Ideal for large family or small groups. Lovely, restful, peaceful time.
Ten out of ten for facilities, service, and value for money. We loved the relaxing atmosphere in the house with all its provisions. It’s perfect!
We have beds for 12 (5 separate rooms with additional sleeping in the games room). Full details of sleeping options are here. It’s a big, private homestead with plenty of space.
We appreciated the friendly welcome and the games room was great. The spaciousness of the house and 3 bathrooms were excellent for 12 guests.
The best part of our stay was being with family in an environment that was almost like being at home. We loved the fireplace and sitting around and feeling relaxed. I can’t think of anything that could have made it better.

Here’s what some of our previous guests had to say:
Your house is amazing and we had a fantastic time. I even had some spare to time to complete a puzzle! The best part of our stay was the way we were greeted on arrival and the facilities.
Galwiji Homestead was very appropriate for our big group, comfortable, warm and most of all, ‘farmlike’. The homestead facilities and service in particular were great.
10 out of 10 for the overall experience. The best part was having games and walks to entertain everyone.
I stayed at Galwiji homestead on two different occasions within a gap of one week. I can call this home away from home. So serene and calm, so neat and well maintained. I appreciate their care for fine details-be it in the kitchen, the beds, the baths or the fire place. It’s a perfect holiday homestead to relax and regain your energy. Go for it!
We all had a wonderful stay and we will all have many lovely memories staying here. A fantastic place for friends to have a wonderful weekend including sharing dinner and a games night.
It was great for all the family to be able to stay together. We enjoyed the quietness and space in our home away from home. We can’t think of anything that could have made the experience better for us.
Overall, it was a ten out of ten experience. The best part was the amount of space, the activities and the utilities provided. The communication before the trip ever started was very professional and friendly.
Glorious weather allowed students to explore outside. The big room was ideal for rehearsals. The beds were warm and comfy.
Everything was great. We loved the games and the family time.
Loved being able to sit and relax on the porch. We enjoyed watching the birds, and the sheep coming home.
Quiet, beautiful views in the evening, comfortable and relaxed, plenty of space to spread out.
We had a delightful time at Galwiji Homestead. It’s the perfect country getaway for a large family group. Thanks to the property managers for making us so welcome. We’ll be back for sure.
10 out of 10 for the overall experience. We enjoyed spending time together as a family and having nature walks.
10 out of 10 for everything. We really enjoyed the visit to see the cows milking on a dairy farm. Everything was perfect. Well done.
