LOCATION
Please check our location and make sure we are the right choice for you.
We are a farm and therefor not located in town.

90 mins Mt Buller Ski Resort

We are located in Greta South, Victoria 20 minutes drive from the nearest township of Benalla. Easy access from the Hume Hwy and the perfect place for a stop over between Sydney/Canberra and Melbourne

FOOD & WINE REGION / ATTRACTIONS
The King Valley Region is home to some of the country’s leading producers of Prosecco along with a vast array of award winning wineries, breweries, fantastic country pubs & gourmet dining experiences. Many of our guests are also attracted to the amazing silo art, local events, arts facilities, bush walking, cultural heritage and local food and wine festivals.

Our area is also steeped in Ned Kelly history if you are interested in following his footsteps via the Ned Kelly Touring Route, Glenrowan & the Ned Kelly Vault Museum in Beechworth all are well worth a visit.

ANIMALS
We are a working farm so you will hear animal noises at times, particularly at feeding times around 8:30am and just before sunset.
The farm is home to a menagerie of animals including friendly dogs. At times we will be out and about feeding animals and attending to jobs around the farm

Depending on the time of year you may even be lucky enough to view the birth of calves or lambs, which is very exciting

Lambing time end of June - July 2021

At present we have four orphan dairy calves we are bottle feeding. Guests are most welcome to bottle feed a calf .
Bottle feeding approx 4:30pm each evening

............................................................................

We can highly recommend thehomestead@glenwood for 2 - 12 guests or groups looking for a place to stay in the north east. A stunning homestead located on a large cattle farm 15 minutes from Benalla.

Guest access
We are a small working hobby farm that is constantly changing and evolving. Our farm animals are mostly tame and friendly although because some are large they can be potentially unpredictable
This includes strictly no pets, service or support animals allowed.
Being a farm our fences are electric please do not touch them they will give you a shock.

Guests have access to the entire farm except the machinery paddock and the main homestead

Guests are also welcome to take a walk on the property and enjoy the views and gorgeous sunsets over the surrounding hills.

We do ask that you respect our animals and ‘very importantly’ please leave all gates, open or closed, as you find them.

Other things to note
Please make sure to list the correct number of guests on your reservation and keep us informed of your time of arrival

It’s also a good idea to add the Airbnb app on your phone so we can communicate with you on the move.
