We booked a room in Lillydale Farmstay for 3D2N. We joined animal feeding the following morning and my 3yo son enjoyed himself thoroughly, he kept wanting to return to hold the chicks and feed the donkeys. Pam, Doug and Bec's warmth and friendliness really made this trip worthwhile. I'll highly recommend this place for families with young children!

This was our third trip to Lilydale and this time we stayed in the Eco-Cabin, as we had relatives with us. It was absolutely blissful, so clean, lovely new fittings and the views to die for. Dinner on the deck every night was a must. The kids (6 and 9) had their usual enormous amount of fun riding horses, animal... More

Just returned from a really great three day break. The room was clean and comfortable, the family and staff couldn't have been more helpful and there was lots to do. The children had a great time with Kaine who ensured that they all knew how to have lots of safe fun with the animals. We would definately recommend our Easter... More
