Stockyard Creek is totally removed from the outside world. It is a unique property completely surrounded by State Forest on the doorstep of the Alpine National Park. When you come, be prepared to experience the lifestyle our pioneers lived and worked in. The small exception is that sections of the original selectors’ homestead are complemented by a comfortable living area containing a large open fireplace and commercial gas stove as well as a gas fridge. A gas barbecue is provided out on the deck. There is a turbine using water from the creek and the lake which provides basic low voltage lighting for the Old Homestead and there are three flush toilets and three showers.
The property lends itself to families or clubs or other groups having a weekend get-together. The Homestead is basic, comfortable, rustic. You will have exclusive use of the property for your stay.
Be prepared for the joys of birdsong and the creek rushing by as your only entertainment. Accommodation arrangements include bunkrooms, some separate double rooms and plenty of places for swags.
Guests self cater and bring their own food, drinks, toiletries including toilet paper, bedding and towels. A camera and a hat too!
