In October of last year, I entered a facebook competition to win two nights accommodation for our family plus 2 mornings of provided breakfast. Obviously I wouldn’t be writing here if we hadn’t won but yes we did win and my husband and I took our three children to Breakaway Farmstay Victor Harbor just last month and I can happily say they we would indeed go again! You can find their website at www.breakawayfarmstay.com.au. The host Rob made us feel so welcome and we were greeted on arrival with a bottle of wine and some chocolates (as well as Marley, one of the farm dogs).
That afternoon the kids had the pleasure of meeting and feeding the farm animals which they really enjoyed and really got in there with the animals (although my younger son was a bit tentative at first). They really revelled in the experience of seeing animals such as Lucy the Goose and some baby ducklings as well.

The kids also got to have fun on the play equipment there, master 8 especially loved the cubby house.
After a night in front of a log fire and roasting marshmallows, we headed to Granite Island to see some of the penguins there, master 8 is quite fascinated by them as he has studied them at school.

I then took the boys for a ride on the horse drawn tram which they loved, I took some photos whilst we awaited for the tram to arrive.

After we got back the kids got to do another round of the farm with the animals and they did this each day until we left. Here is a few more photos before we left the next day.

And on the morning that we were to leave, I captured this rainbow, seems like the perfect ending to a wonderful weekend. Thanks so much to Rob and Tracey for our wonderful weekend, we will have some very fond memories of our fab weekend! I give 5 out of 5 stars for this farmstay establishment and I am sure I will be back there again very soon!
