Interaction with guests
We live on the opposite side of the highway. So you can have as much, or as little contact with us as you want. Your cottage is fully self-contained. You can also have hands on contact with the donkeys, but there are requirements you must follow for your safety, which are emailed before your arrival. No, they are not for riding, but absolutely love having your attention, a good scratch or a brush. Donkeys are very friendly and therapeutic animals who simply love having your attention.

Lovely country air, clean and comfortable cottage and warm and sweet donkeys. Just the break we needed to recharge the batteries.

About the neighbourhood
The Maryborough Railway Station is a sight not to be missed, you can't help but appreciate its grandour. Some say Maryborough, is a town attached to a railway station! For those who love our history, Clunes is just 15 mins away and is famous for the buildings that line the Main Street, as filmed in many historic movies, Ned Kelly being one. Maldon, Ballarat, Bendigo, we are central to them all. Local wineries abound as do the scenic walking trails. Spot kangaroos in their natural habitat! Bird life aplenty and picturesque views as you travel through the area.
How to get there
Driving is the most direct, or you can catch a train, or coach to Maryborough and a 10 minute taxi. (We are happy to pick you up, if we are available)
