Our family of ten, four parents, four kids and two grandparents had a wonderful time at Madison's. Ann, the relief manager, made our stay such a special time and all the children were sooooo sad to leave. In spite of one day with extreme heat (44 degrees!!!) we still fed animals with gusto. Our accommodation...two converted railway carriages with aircon...

Brilliant family place with a super friendly management. The refurbished train carriages are good fun for the kids and the huge pool and tennis courts a plus. Included breakfast hampers will easily cover a solid breakfast.

Welcoming staff, not far out of the city, but still feel like you're miles away. Cabins are a good distance apart. We attended a wedding nearby and this was not too far from the venue which was great. The breakfast hampers were massive and put together with thought. Will definitely be back!

Our last minute getaway from Sydney to this mountain retreat was well worth the drive. Our children aged 4 and 6) loved hand-feeding the alpaca's, looking for the free-range chicken's eggs in the gardens, feather finding and generally exploring the farm on their own. We all took advantage of the heated plunge pool in the middle of winter as well...

We stayed at Madison's for 2 nights. The mountains had just had snow and it was freezing outside. We were greeted by the manager who was fantastic our whole stay.
