  • Had a great time. Loved the house and the property and the visit to the dairy farm was a great success. We were made to feel most welcome. My Youth Group have asked if we can visit again next year as they loved it so much.

  • 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.
