The Farm

The Aspens Farmstay Bright is nestled in the Roberts Creek Valley a short 5 minute drive from both Bright and Porepunkah. It has a varied history with different farming enterprises ranging from dairying to tobacco, chestnuts and beef cattle and now farm holidays with a diversity of animals for farm stayers interest.

The property of 100 acres was purchased by Jim and Lesley Davis in 1992 when there was one house and a few outbuildings. The house, now called "The Cottage", was the main residence, the original old dairy had been very crudely converted into other living quarters. The oven being its only means of hot water and cooking. After major renovations and extensive garden works in and around the old dairy, it became the main residence.

Aspens Heritage Farm Park has been developed with easy access to all animal viewing and participation areas.

The farm animals and recreation areas are wheelchair friendly and accessible to people of all abilities. As part of their farm stay holiday, weather permitting, guests can enjoy bonfire nights under the stars with marshmallows and chestnut roasting, in season.

Visitors are welcome to enjoy the natural bush, fishing in the lake, yabbying in the dams, chestnut and fruit picking in season and joining in farm holiday activities.

There is a childrens playground and plenty of space for kicking or batting a ball.

Your pets will be delighted with the space THEY have to romp in!
