"Found this wonderful Farm stay by accident at the Balranald Tourist Info., what a treasure. Congratulations and thanks to Diane and Tim, and on such short notice too.
Your restorations are great, still a long way to go we know, but the view is just superb and we enjoyed your hospitality. Thoroughly recommend the farm stay (or tent or van) to anyone looking for something different and to enjoy Aussie outback farm life. Don't be daunted by the drive in, you will enjoy it. Drinks on the verandah looking out at the sunset just wonderful."
Fantastic historic property in a special location
"This was the highlight of our trip to outback NSW. Diane the owner has really done something special in restoring the former shearer's quarters into as close as you will find to 4 star within 100km. The restorations have been done very thoughtfully and down to the smallest detail and it was the best water pressure in the showers since I was a kid! Diane and her late husband have also brought a 450 hectare lake back to life only metres from the accommodation after it was dry for 100 years thanks to some negotiation with a range of governments and a massive revegetation effort. The property has a ton of history including having had Burke and Wills stay in the stables. Our kids loved it and never ran out of things to do and we never missed the TV or wifi and the experience is all the better for not having these facilities although we could access the Testra mobile network when we needed it. Also the Homebus Hotel 10 minutes away had great meals and atmosphere. Overall I can't recommend more highly - well done Dianne"
Great spot and WOW can Dianne cook!
"We had a small fly away in 5 different aircraft. I new nothing about the station before this trip. It dates back to the mid 1850's and has too much history to mention here. It is a taste of the outback so close to Victoria that it needs to be seen. The old homestead and gardens are just lovely. Dianne cooked a 3 course meal for the 5 of us that was restaurant quality. Well worth a visit.
Thanks Dianne, we will be back."
Lots of little extras
"My family loved staying at Lake Paika Accommodation and using it as a base for visiting Lakes Mungo and Yanga. The rooms and facilities are very clean while Dianne seemed to provide lots of little extras that the kids especially enjoyed. The drive to Mungo was an easy hour and a half out the Burke & Wills Road. We spent a whole day at Mungo and then had a wholesome dinner at the historic Homebush Hotel on the way home. Thanks Dianne and team for making our stay so special."
