I stayed at Duckmaloi farm in June 2010 with my partner and our 2.5 year old daughter. We stayed three nights in the wombat cottage. It was a wonderful holiday. I had booked the accomodation, and my partner was so happy with it, he was a bit dubious about a farm stay, but when we got there he couldn't stop saying what a great place it was.
The cottage was lovely. We went during a very cold snap, but while it went below zero outside, it was above 20 degrees and beautiful and warm in the cottage, with great heaters and a fabulous wood fire. The cottage had everything we needed, and Oberon has a great couple of supermarkets and places to buy dinner. We particularly enjoyed the woodfired pizzas from 'the cave'. The cottages were clean, cosy, and my daughter just loved her room. Our only problem was that we were so comfy we kept falling to sleep early! We slept brilliantly.
In the mornings we had the most beautiful view of the valley with kangaroos hopping around, and sometimes beautiful misty cloud in the valley, as well as a spectacular view of the setting moon. It was very private and relaxing.
The new owner Peter and his family had just taken over. They were great, and helped with anything we needed. The 'shed' had some large containers of hay and carrots and we filled up buckets and fed the sheep, lambs, alpacas, cows, ponies, miniature donkeys, and we also had a good squiz at the horses, ducks and the many kangaroos.
We spent three nights, and went to jenolan caves (wonderful), oberon, katoomba, leura and wentworth falls. The drive to the farm was really beautiful.
I would absolutely recommend it to anyone.
