About this property

The Quarters - A real farm experience

Family-friendly agritourism property in Emu Swamp

The renovation is complete. A warm and charming farm stay awaits - a far cry from the basic abode provided to the many shearers that passed through Bondonga wool shed. Whilst maintaining its atmosphere and ambience, we provide a comfortable, well appointed and romantic experience for you to enjoy.


Is a 6th generation sheep station encompassing 920 ha of undulating to hilly pastures. The focus is on the production of quality grass fed lamb. We endeavour to treat our land and animals with the greatest respect. Extensive tree planting has been undertaken and 180 acres of remnant bush is being preserved and managed. Kangaroos, wallabies and the precious platypus, along with a multitude of beautiful birds, live within the property's boundary.

Take the opportunity to experience real farm life on the ATV Tours. Hear first hand about Australian farmers, see sheep and lambs, feel the wool, experience the sounds and smell of a working shearing shed.


The Quarters is located 11km from the sophisticated rural city of Orange and only 3km from some of Orange's most successful vineyards - Mayfield, Sassy and Moody's.

Orange, with its vibrant and delectable food culture, is an easy drive showcasing numerous restaurants, cafes, parks and gardens.

Byng, with its convict built church and period homesteads, is a 'Must See' and only 5 minutes from Bondonga.

Enjoy the unspoiled natural beauty of the Ophir Reserve, 30 minutes from Bondonga, where Gold was first discovered in Australia in 1851. Take a picnic lunch, wander the old diggings and pan for gold.

The historic town of Millthorpe, classified by the National Trust, with its untouched cobblestone streetscape and federation buildings, top class restaurants, cafes and galleries is only a 20 minute drive.

Magical place
We have had the most incredible time here. Our boys (as well as us) have loved exploring the farm, the creek and the volcanic rocks. Fran and Chris are fantastic hosts, they really made our stay special and couldn’t do enough for us. We’ll be back next year!

Cosy Quarters
Our two families had a peaceful and relaxing time staying at the Quarters. Extremely comfy and cosy beds, effective heating and great facilities. So much to see and do in the local area but a highlight was definitely the ATV farm tour with Chris.

Amazing weekend away
What a lovely place to stay. This farmhouse is so lovely and welcoming. A real home away from home. Wifi and mobile coverage is minimal, so great opportunity for the teens to disconnect.
