About the property

Escape to the Country with your family/friends and indulge in a weekend of fine food and wines, picturesque scenery and some well earned rest! The Homestead is the perfect group accommodation venue, or indulge and book the Homestead just for the two of you and enjoy the lovely maundering rural setting.

Set on 300 acres just outside of beautiful Pambula, the Homestead has everything you need for a break away with your friends or family, hidden away yet located only 1km to town and 3.5 kms to Pambula Beach. It is tranquil and timeless and epitomises rural Australia.

The Homestead is a charming colonial farmhouse built in 1847. It has been tastefully restored with quality furniture and fittings that are designed to create a luxurious and restful stay.

It comprises three large bedrooms (all with queen size beds) with high ceilings and stunning period features, two bathrooms, large lounge room, well-equipped kitchen and peaceful sunroom.

Wide verandahs, a secluded courtyard and tranquil gardens surround the Homestead.

The Sapphire Coast

All types of activities are available on the Sapphire Coast from surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, snorkelling, kite surfing, scuba diving, boogie boarding and swimming at the area's many quality beaches.

Boat trips, whale watching (Sept-Dec) and all sorts of fishing - beach, rock, leisure and sport fishing are also on offer as are a full range of sporting activities including golf, lawn bowls, tennis, bike riding, sea-kayaking, horse riding or canoeing.

The Sapphire Coast is also home to many spectacular national parks, two exquisite natural waterfalls and plenty of short and medium walks/hikes that reveal the extraordinary beauty of the area. The Merimbula airport is serviced by daily flights from Sydney and Melbourne and also provides the opportunity for joy-flights.

The nearby village of Pambula is well equipped to provide you with everything you need for your stay- a supermarket, cafes, pubs, award winning bakery, specialty shops and the Oaklands tourist complex which comprises a garden centre, gift shop, cafe, art gallery, farmyard nursery and horse trail rides.

Nearby Merimbula is home to many restaurants, coffee shops, clothing boutiques, a cinema, four local clubs, a family fun park and a wildlife park.

Less than half an hour south is Eden, where you can discover the story of the killer whales that helped the pioneers catch fish and where the Young Endeavour calls into port. Sample fresh caught seafood and watch the trawlers unload their daily catch at the wharf.

Half an hour north is Bega where Australia's famous Bega Cheese Factory will delight and inform cheese lovers.

Take a drive further afield to the coastal towns of Tathra and Bermagui to explore more of the area's fabulous unspoilt coast line and indulge in some fresh caught seafood, explore local art galleries and enjoy a fabulous Sapphire Coast lunch.

Oaklands Homdstead is a beautiful original old Aaustralian Homestead with wooded garden .

  • 3 of 5

Awaken to a chorus of birdsong and the lowing of grazing cows. Take your morning hot drink for a walk through the garden and say good morning to a horse wandering with the cows. The coffee shop at the event centre has marvellous breakfast served by cheerful folks, the nursery is laden with temptations. Arriving home after a day of sightseeing, call in at the brewery for an afternoon refreshment before returning to your homestead to watch TV, DVD, listen to music or hideaway in comfy corners to read and relax in total peace and quiet.

Wonderful Experience!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Oaklands; it was like stepping back in time. The owners had added many extra things to make the stay unique. We were so delighted to have Kangaroos in our front yard both evening and morning. The farm walk was lovely, and we purchased a painting at the art gallery on site.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of attending a wedding at this homestead. Everything was just beautiful- the gardens were beautiful and landscaped and the inside of this historical homestead was simply gorgeous. Highly recommend this to anyone wanting a home away from home style holiday.
