About Us

Your hosts, the McInnis family, are 5th generation sheep graziers and kindly open their 11,000 acre backyard to share with you.

Bring your family to our farm to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With limited mobile phone coverage, you can get away from it all. Let the kids get dirty, climb a tree, make a cubby in the creek, catch a tadpole or two. It's these impressions that will make memories to last a lifetime! Get back to nature and have old fashioned FUN with your kids in our back yard. Shearing demonstrations and viewing of other seasonal farm practices may be available.

Day trips/attractions within the Flinders Ranges region include; Hawker, Flinders Ranges National Park, Wilpena Pound, Blinman, Parachilna, various gorges, scenic drives or flights and 4WD tours.

The “Experience”

On the property -

You may be able to assist with seasonal farm jobs - ask us what we are currently doing.

Meet and feed our pet farm animals. Miniature horses, lambs, chickens, ducks and the friendly pig.

Willow Waters Gorge is a great destination for camping, picnics, bush walking or just relaxing and listening to the birds sing. Getting in touch with nature couldn’t be easier! The beautiful tree lined Willow Creek, with a natural spring, curves its way through mountainous ranges that attract kangaroos, emus, reptiles and a large range of native birdlife – Keep an eye out for the resident wedge tail eagles!
