Tracton Homestead is the larger of our two farm stay houses.
With both 'Tracton' and 'Moorallie' being neighbouring farms we are happy for all of our guests to access both properties during their stay. Guests are welcome to use the swimming pool and tennis court located at Moorallie during their stay.

Hi all, we live on a 1000 acre farm which has a great little cottage on it which we are looking to utilise as a farm stay.
Our farm has been in the family since the mid-1800s and runs a commercial beef and sheep herd. We grow apples, pears, and figs which are available to be picked straight from the tree during harvest season (November-May). We also have a Labrador breeding business that we run with my mother who also lives on the farm and usually have at least 1 litter of pups to be played with at any one time.
We love the great outdoors. As a couple on the weekends in winter we enjoy snow skiing (1 hour drive) and in the summer we waterski (30 mins drive). As we are located at the base of the beautiful Snowy Mountains and Kosciuszko National Park there is some of the best hiking in Australia to be had which we also do regularly. We are surrounded by beautiful scenic drives so our cottage is also the perfect base for any motorcycle enthusiast.
We love to travel when we get the opportunity and recent trips have included South America, Papua New Guinea and Canada. We regularly use the WWOOF program and have had the opportunity to have people from all over the world staying with us from time to time.
We have a large vegetable patch, free-range chickens, a milking cow, bake our own bread and have our own beef and lamb butchered. Ideally we would love to become self-sufficient and are working towards that.
The cottage is located 50m from our home which has a tennis court and swimming pool which are available for guests to use. The pristine Adelong Creek runs through our farm and has an abundance of trout and some of the dams on the farm have also been stocked with native fish for the anglers amongst us. For the nature lovers you don't have to walk far from the cottage to spot a kangaroo, the occasional echidna and if you are really lucky you might spy one of the resident platypus is the creek.
The locations of our farm provides us with the full four seasons within neither extremes of hot or cold weather during the winters and summers. Our farm is located only a short 15 minute drive from the Hume Highway. We live 5mins drive from the quaint township of Adelong, famous for its gold rush history, and 20 mins drive from the township of Tumut, a larger town that will provide anything that you may need.
