Hanericka Farmstay, near Lockhart
Hanericka Farmstay is an authentic farm stay experience with the option to do a lot or a little; from relaxing by the poolside enjoying the tranquillity to spending your day on the land. Located in Yerong Creek in the heart of the Riverina, this award-winning, sixth generation property has opened its farm gates and homestead doors to guests for over 27 years.
Deniz and Amanda Aygun are your welcoming hosts and encourage children and adults alike to join in the many daily farm activities. Volunteers can help around the farmyard by feeding and caring for the animals including chickens, pet pig and lambs, alpacas and even a few camels! The farm has a swimming pool, tennis courts, table-tennis and cubby houses. On winter nights a camp fire is lit with damper and marshmallows. Explore The Australian Women’s Wheat Barn, a fascinating collection of farming and household memorabilia and there are places close by for bushwalking and bike riding.
Modern, fresh rooms with ensuite are available and guests can choose either B&B or fully catered. The newly refurbished farm café serves delicious wholesome meals.
Family groups, schools, workshop and fly-in groups are welcome and from April 2016, day visitors.
