Interaction with guests
The Baird's are a big part of the farm, from developing the property from an empty cow paddock to a world class equine facility, accommodation and commercial kitchen, featuring local home grown foods. Kath, Steve Lin, Clay and their staff, are a wealth of knowledge of the local area, and great entertainers.
The Long Table was made by Kath's Father Bill Viney in the 1960's, and is well seated in the riders lounge as centre of conversation and shared meals, great conversations and good friends.

I grew up at Spring Spur with my brother Clay and Parents, Kath and Steve Baird. Our family have spent the past few years building Spring Spur Stay & Riders Lounge from the ground up. The completion of Spring Spur has added unique element to our existing tour operation Bogong Horseback Adventures offering award winning horse riding experiences from day rides to multi-day expeditions into the Alpine National Park.
