Very rude owner who disagreed that I had paid for tour online even when I showed her bank transaction on my phone.
She would only allow us to do tour if I paid again. Had to drive into town to bank to show her a printed statement confirming I had indeed paid.
Owner needs to learn customer service and apologise when she is wrong !
Will not recommend this business nor will our family return.

Our long weekend glamping experience at Splitters Farm was exactly what we didn’t know we needed! This was our first farm stay and our first time glamping and we were absolutely blow away!

The tent was like staying in a 5 star hotel. It’s luxurious, comfortable and beautifully styled for the setting - from the stone bench top in the kitchenette down to the cow mugs in the drawers. Continental breakfast in the fridge and cupboards was made even more perfect with the fresh daily bread they deliver to your room every morning still warm from the oven. Even though the tent is technically one room it felt private with the addition of the wall between the 2 rooms which was great with 2 little kids. The firepit overlooking the river and greenery was the perfect end to every day. On the Saturday night they played a movie out on the grass near the swimming area and it was so cute to watch all the kids and families settle in for some quality time.

The farm just got better and better the longer we explored. Different animals at every turn. I don’t think my daughter stopped smiling the entire time we were there. This was her first time feeding and patting animals and she had the time of her life - we fed them all multiple times a day. The whole place is beautifully thought out and maintained. You can feel the love that’s been put into this place. A great place to disconnect from life and reconnect with nature.

We are already planning our next trip back and look forward to visiting each year with our little family. Thankyou Splitters Farm!!

Went on a self guided tour with our twelve year old granddaughter. What a beautiful place to wander through. Fed the animals on the way around, so much to see. The whole place is tidy and clean, and the animals and birds are obviously well cared for. A nice picnic area. The camping area looks amazing. Staff knowledgeable and friendly. A great morning out.

Absolutely amazing camping spot/farmstay. I cannot rate this place highly enough. The property is immaculate & well maintained. Animals, space, activities, playground, pizza & pasta nights at the camp kitchen to save cooking. River and a dam to swim, kayak etc.

We have a 22 foot caravan and our site was spacious and they have nice wide 'streets'. Our site also came with a fire pit.

The whole place is incredible and a credit to the owners and their vision. All staff were friendly too.

I've seen other reviews where people complain about the price - once you're here you can see why it is the price it is. Well worth the $$$.

We will be back for sure.

Hey! Thank you so much for your kind words, we are so happy to hear that your experience was a pleasant one! We take pride in ensuring our grounds and facilities are kept up to standards and we are very grateful for our awesome staff who assist in doing this! All money goes towards helping feed, support, and care for all the animals that we have on site, and any fees allow us the ability to take in and continue to rescue more animals. We really hope to see you again soon!

Splitters farm, what a park! Without a doubt the best park we have stayed in, what an unreal atmosphere, the professional and friendly staff made it even better. The facilities and park in general are immaculate. The kids absolutely love the interaction with the animals, with so much for them to do!!! I honestly can't speak highly enough of this park, what a credit to the owners, and staff that keep it all going. It was so good to see the young staff working so well, I hope that this commendation reaches them!! Thanks team for the amazing experience!!

Atmosphere is everything on a family trip, the kids got excited from the grand front gate. Plenty of things for the kids to do, and an awesome facility which is a credit to its owners. The small touches set this place apart from other farm stays. Highly recommend to anyone looking for that home away from home vibe, with all the fun farm activities.

Do not book here!!!!!!!!!!!!! I tried to cancel a booking due to a torn ACL almost 30 days out - was told I would wear an 80% fee.

Worst customer service. Ever!

Hey Hayley. While we do have a fair but flexible cancellation policy, you were given the opportunity (and still do) to provide a medical certificate to receive a 1 year credit for funds paid towards your booking. This was explained to you at the time of your call however you chose to cancel and forfeit the cancellation fee. Your booking was only 50% paid and we provided the refund as per our T&C's based on the notice given. Unfortunately your cancellation left one of our highly desirable glamping tents empty on a fully booked weekend when we had turned others away. We suggest that in future you please read the cancellation policy for any accommodation you choose to book. Ours is on our website. If you chose to change your mind please give us a call. We would be happy to host you in future.

Beautiful grounds and rooms. We stayed in the glamping tent, it had everything you could possibly need in a stay. The room had a Weber, hot plate, full fridge and all the cooking utensils you could need. We were also provided with breakfast cereals, yogurt, 2L milk and juice. In the morning they dropped off fresh bread. The room also had its own fire pit with firewood.

The grounds were immaculately maintained, the animals were amazing. All have been rescued or surrendered.

Hey Jasmine, Thanks again for staying with us and for letting others know. We try our best to make our glamping facilities as comfortable (if not more comfortable) than being in a 5-star hotel and we appreciate you taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you back soon. xx
