The main reason people come to Ironbarks is to do nothing other than relax... Reading books by the fire, going for walks in the native bush, practicing your golf, chasing Kangaroos (good luck!), or spotting birds.

Ironbarks is a quiet place. The sort of place you come to if you want to have some time to yourself, either alone or as a group.

Relax on one of the decks and choose from a number of beautiful views; the glimmer of Mt Tarrangower over the farmland in the distance, or the Australian native bush that surrounds the property. Perhaps you will be enjoying a bottle of local wine that you picked up at a winery visit, or contemplating a day spent in a nearby town.

You may like to take a walk to one of the dams, and try your hand at yabbying, or just watch the animals and birds whose home we share. Early risers are especially well rewarded if they get out for an early morning walk. You can finish off a perfect day by dining under the stars.

Saw kangaroos and bunnies jumping around on our approach to Ironbarks....So clean and tidy thank you! Lunch at Dunolly bakery.....Mt Avoca winery and Blue Pyrenees got squeezed in too.
Great spot you have there...we'll let all our friends know! Rachelle

I thought the property was fantastic and really had everything you could ask for in a holiday home, needless to say we were all very impressed and reluctant to leave. Darren
