About the property

Seven Hills Tallarook as the name suggests sits on seven magnificent hills. Our property lets you step back to before technology and having everything at our finger tips while being on a modern farm while upholding traditional values. You're welcome to join in on as much or as little as you wish off our life on the farm. Our home is your home when you come to the farm and we encourage you to embrace what's around you and enjoy it.

On the farm, we use sustainable energy to produce our own electricity, harnessing wind and solar power. Our pristine water comes from captured rain water, underground springs and natural river systems. When using water for showers, flushing the toilet and using power, please me mindful of our natural resources and how limited they are.

The main homestead has 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside that will take your breath away. Our homestead caters for up to 20 guests at any one time. The house is a horse-shoe shaped with the swimming pool, spa and alfresco area in the middle. We have one large kitchens, one smaller kitchen, two large lounge areas complete with Foxtel and DVD players, two laundries, two additional bathrooms and six bedrooms.Starting on the South Wing the room configurations are as follows:

Queen with en suite (S/W)

King with en suite (N/W)

3 single bunk beds with work stations underneath. (N/W)

We welcome you to visit Seven Hills Tallarook so we can cater a holiday that you will never forget, a function, wedding, conference or an educational farm tour about “all things goat”. We are pet and equine friendly.

We offer extra farm activities just an hour from Melbourne CBD

Seven Hills is a working goat farm, just now we have about 500 goats. In our peak, we had just over 2,500. There's plenty to do at the farm for our guests looking for that "farm stay" visit, especially for our younger guests, such as our chickens and pet pigs and collecting fleshly laid eggs in the morning. During the winter months, our guests tend to enjoy joining us for cutting wood, burning off and then joining us for a camp fire and a beer at the end of the day. Or if you want to come, relax and leave the stress of the city behind, then it's also the perfect place for you too, with 360 degree views, overlooking Seymour, Kilmore, Broadford and Puckapunyal.

We have two kilometres of Sunday Creek to enjoy - walk, fish or yabbie (we have rods and yabbie nets available if needed). We have ten kilometres of roads on the property which showcase incredible views looking over the Tallarook State Forrest and Mount Piper. We can take you 4WD and guided quad bike tours and organise a skeet shoot (these come at additional charges). We have a spa and PA system available for our guest to rent out at an additional charge.

If you wish to purchase fresh cuts of goat meat from our farm, such as shoulders, loins, racks, sausages and our world famous chorizo, you are welcome to do so. We are very proud in the way our animals are raised as we have been a proud finalist of the Delicious Produce Awards for 2010, 2011, and nominated for the 2012 year.

Any damages/breakages are made during your stay, you will be liable for the cost of repairs.

Fabulous Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property & weekend to celebrate our mums 70th birthday together as a family. It was perfect for our celebrations & had everything we needed. The kids had an amazing time collecting eggs, feeding the pigs & exploring. Highly recommended.

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us wanted to get away with the kids during school holidays and this was the perfect place. Kids were occupied the entire time playing with the friendly farm dogs and cat, collecting eggs from the chooks, tiggy around the tin cubby, catching yabbies in the dam, riding on quad bikes and running around the bush. The kitchen had everything we needed and an enormous bench which was great for 9 kids! The master bedroom was so cosy with it's own fireplace, ensuite and tv and the owner was readily available to answer any questions. Highly recommend.

Best!! Far Out.... Experience

  • 5 of 5

Guys this property is just awesome. Pictures does not justify this place well. It is so beautiful and well maintained. Taylan and Rebecca are great host and very friendly. We went there for 2 nights. We had our BBQ, had pool party and enjoyed jacuzzi while sunset. Kids played with their pets and fed pigs n chicks.Boys had all the fun and hired mud bikes. We went in to forest and enjoyed watching group of Kangaroos. House view is mesmerizing and they have got music system around pool. We will surely come back to stay again.Highly recommend this place!!

Nice find!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 7 of us stayed here for the Tough Mudder weekend event. Spacious (inside and outside within the farm premises) we were able to kick back and enjoy our weekend.

Great view of the landscape uptop on the balcony.

We were greeted at the door by the owners two friendly dogs, while the owners themselves were very nice. Told us to help ourselves to the hen's eggs.

Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend to friends and family!
