    Description

    My family would like to invite travellers to stay with us at our farm in the centre of NSW near the town of Condobolin 500km west of Sydney. We have been having so much fun hosting people and making new friends.

    A 12 600 acre (5000ha) property with up to 5000 sheep, some cattle and 3000 acres of crop.

    We are all very interested in growing and producing our own food. We have an orchard and chooks etc

    We are a family of seven ,
    Tim and Sue (mid 50's)
    Max & Nathan (33 & 29)
    Jason (45) Tiffany (29) and their son Cooper (2) and the newest addition baby Brody!

    We live and work on the property and also travel in our spare time.
