NEIL NELSON
The SHEARERS' QUARTERS is clean and has all that you would need for either a weekend or extended stay. It has lovely view over the farm dam to the paddocks beyond and the deck is wonderful place to sit for breakfast or dinner - it is also lovely and quiet there. Being from Australia and staying for two weeks, we would have liked a television or radio to keep us informed of goings on back home (especially on account of the 2019/ 2020 bushfires and floods); there is neither. The wi-fi is dependable and we had no connectivity issues whatsoever. For those staying for longer periods, could I suggest that you ask for the garbage to be collected more than once per week, particularly during the Summer months.
Response from Owner
Thanks so much for coming to stay with us and for your valuable comments. To be honest, we have not had guests stay much longer than a few days at a time, but you are absolutely right in suggesting we collect refuse more frequently and I apologise for this. I will certainly do so in the future. As for the TV and radio, we haven't considered supplying a TV as guests have access to WiFi and are able to watch and listen to everything on their phones or laptops. There isn't much room for one either and most come to stay for the peace & quiet. Perhaps a radio might be a good idea, but once again guests' devices are usually good for this too, hence the free WiFi. We are always happy to help with any requests whilst guests are staying, such as washing clothes etc. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we would love to see you again - when the rivers are higher for better fishing!

From the outside the property looks like a “Shearers Quarters” inside is different. It has everything you want for a short stay, It does not have any laundry facilities but Debbies appears to be “On Call” for any of your needs. The outlook is as described extremely rural with all the quite of the bush. There is no TV, no phone reception for our mobiles, but the property has internet with speeds equivalent to Australia’s NBN, ie in excess of 20mps which means you can stream news and entertainment services so who needs TV? Debbie even supplied us with a night light so we could find our way to the loo in the dark. She gave us good advice re local beaches and taverns and was spot on. We love the quiet, coming from a city of 5.6 million people it is a form of wellness for us. Loved the location, outlook and feel of the “Quarters” Debbie is a great communicator, keeping us in the loop leading up to our stay. Would we stay again? DEFINITELY!
