A lovely place to take a walk, along the winding coastal path. Not too hard, gravel with a few inclines, but generally pretty easy. The cafe is worth stopping in - best coffee and breakfast ive had for years!

Was a relaxing and enjoyable morning. All staff were friendly. The cafe was well positioned and the food and the coffee were great. Great day out for a family but also for the couples that enjoy getting back to nature.

Nice historical homestead and sheds. Many animals around, highland cows, sheep, peacocks, wallabies, horses, pigs and so on. Sheep shearing was interesting. The food was surprisingly good - excellent butter chicken and a pumpkin & carrot soup. Good attraction for everyone, but especially for kids...More

Last year we travelled all the way to Scotland and only saw highland cows in the distance. Who knew you could see them in Victoria? Seriously, a very interesting place with helpful volunteers providing history lessons.
