About this place
G'day, mountain bikers and nature lovers! Come join us for an adventure in our Dreams Alpaca Farm in Windeyer. We are a working farm. Here you will have a lovely farmstay and experience the outback in our 300 acres of farm land. You can go mountain biking on our trails (bring your own bikes) and bushwalking.
Farm tour (e.g. meet our cute alpacas, feed the animals, watch our farm dogs round up the goats, etc) is available at extra cost and pre-booking is required. You will need to stay at least 2 nights in order to have sufficient time to enjoy the farm tour. Please enquire with your host if interested to participate.

Please refer to notes in "other things to note" before you book.

The space
The Retreat cabin is a studio type house. Here, you can experience the outback life but still feel the comforts of being at home. Inside you will find a TV, a comfortable couch, an indoor fireplace, a dining table, a flush toilet, and air-conditioning and heating. It has one queen bed which can sleeps two adults comfortably and a sofa bed which can be converted to a double bed. Truly a comfortable place to rest!

This cabin also comes with a fully equipped kitchen with range stove and oven, full size refrigerator, electric kettle, cookware, dishware, and utensils. Everything you need to create that perfect meal conveniently!

Be completely awed with nature and just unwind as the outdoor bath is just right next the cabin. Prepare to have the best bbq night out as this is located in an enclosed garden with a gas bbq and wood bbq, under the pergola.
