The farm dam offers ample opportunity for guests to cool off on hot summer days, where delicious picnic lunches are served.

The beautifully decorated glass field kitchen restaurant stands at the heart of the camp overlooking the incredible valley, where guests are treated to the finest of dining from the resident chef with all protein produce coming directly from the farm. With adventurous yet approachable dishes using hyper-locally sourced ingredients, paired with estate wines and locally distilled spirits being served.
