In order to have a minimal footprint on the planet, we have chosen to power Glenayr Farm using solar power which is only capable of a light load. So please only use the power to charge phones, lap tops, lanterns, speaker and to power the lights, TV, fridge and toaster. Items like a hairdryer or kitchen appliances will overload the system.
Our tents are 15m apart for privacy and a maximum of 50m to the amenities block.
Glenayr Farm has mobile phone coverage with Telstra, but not with Optus.
Glenayr Farm is located in a rural area which is home to lots of sheep, cattle and Australian wildlife, so unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate any pets. However, if you can guarantee your pooch is the perfect guest, we may be able to make arrangements for Group Bookings only. Please contact us to discuss.
By mother nature.
All linen and towels are provided.
Due to the high fire risk of the property – the outdoor fire-pits cannot be used at all from December 1st to March 1st (subject to change based on local conditions). They are also not to be used during any windy conditions or any total fire ban days. Read full fire ban guide.
We are one of the few accomodation places that supply fire wood, kindling and firestarters. We supply a generous amount, however, if you run out, you can wonder around the property and collect your own or you can drive 5 minutes down the road to the Bushland Caravan Park at 1879 Windeyer Rd, Windeyer (next door to the pub), where you can buy more.
5 minutes down the road to the Bushlands Tourist Park at 1879 Windeyer Rd, Windeyer (next door to the pub), has a great little shop to grab any supplies you may need. Open 8am till 7pm.

“Glenayr Farm is child friendly, especially for group bookings. While our tents and villas are designed to accommodate two guests, we understand the desire to include your little ones in the experience. If you choose to bring a small child, and are willing to bring your own bedding, there is no additional charge. However, for families with more than one child, an extra accommodation booking will be necessary. At Glenayr Farm, we take pride in providing a serene and tranquil atmosphere for our guests to enjoy. To ensure a peaceful stay for everyone, we kindly request that you be mindful of other guests’ peace and quiet. Additionally, please be aware that our farm features unfenced dams, emphasising the importance of keeping a watchful eye on children for their safety.”
The joy of Glenayr Farm is the peace and tranquillity. Noise does travel and we like our neighbours and don’t want to upset them. So, we would appreciate if you kept noise to a minimum and turn things down after 10pm, not only out of respect to our other guests, but also for our neighbours.
If you book out Glenayr Farm exclusively (including the Luxury Villa), we do host up to 20 guests. But please be mindful of our noise policy above.
About 500 meters. This gives the ultimate privacy, however, if you book all accomodation for a group booking, they are all still close enough to each other.
Both Villas have their own private hot tub which is included in the price.
At Glamping, there is one hot tub for all 4 tents which is built in at the communal area. Since everyone may not want the hot tub, this is an optional extra of $100. This covers the cost of having it sterilised clean before each use, filling it with water (that gets shipped in), the cost of the gas to heat the first fill with hot water and wood to reheat it on subsequent nights. When individual tents are booked, the first person to book and pay for the hot tub, gets EXCLUSIVE use of the hot tub for the duration of their stay (as it is not hygienic to share). Upon booking, you will receive codes and instructions on how to fill and heat the tub.
No, Group Bookings receive exclusive use of the communal area. The Villas are completely seperate and private with their own facilities.
The bunkhouse does sleep 8 people in 2 interconnecting rooms. One room has a queen bed and the other room has 2 bunks with a double on the bottom and a single on the top. It is a ‘cosy’ space best suited for children.
Absolutely! It’s perfect for a large family gathering. Generation 1 gets the Luxury Villa, Generation 2 get the bell tents and Generation 3 get the bunk house.
