Wongarra Farm is a magnificent sustainable working farm on 90 acres of exquisite rolling green hills overlooking the Great Southern Ocean. It is ideally placed just 2km inland from the Great Ocean Road and 20 minutes from Apollo Bay offering the best of local ocean beaches and unspoilt rainforest.
The farm is wonderfully diverse and includes rich green pasture, two creeks, several dams, native bush, rain forest and fern-lined gullies. It borders the large Otways Main Ridge Conservation Reserve and hosts abundant native animals and birds, including koalas, wallabies, bower birds and wedge-tailed eagles. The Great Otway National Park is just minutes away.
The farm produces the highly sought after Perigord Black truffles. It also produces grass-fed beef and lamb, free-range eggs and pork as well as a wide range of fruits, vegetables and berries. The farm is a prized example of productive chemical-free farming whilst maintaining respect for the native environment.
The elegant cedar homestead is sited close to a beautiful gurgling creek, waterfall and picturesque pond. The generous living areas look out over an expansive lawn with views of the mature exotic garden full of azaleas, camelias and magnolias through to the ocean beyond. The house comprises three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a sun room, laundry, large well-appointed kitchen and huge open-plan living and dining areas.
Two wood-fired heaters and reverse cycle air conditioning guarantee comfort all year round. The living area is comfortable and very generous and even includes a piano. The kitchen features a large dual fuel stove, dishwasher, microwave, espresso machine and ample bench space. There are enough settings to cater for dinners of up to 12 people. The master bedroom is on the second floor and features an ensuite with spa bath as well as picture windows with views to die for. Two further bedrooms downstairs feature access to the outdoor decking and two bathrooms. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the third contains double bunks and a trundle bed. The sun room can double as an additional bedroom. The wide decking overlooks a large lawn and paved entertaining area with an ocean backdrop. From here it is a short walk to a fern-lined waterfall and pond with secret paths leading along the creek through remnant rain forest. The farm's pastures, orchard, berry patch, greenhouse and truffiere are also just a short walk from the house.
Wongarra Farm is ideal for a family holiday getaway or a romantic and indulgent unwind. It is a wonderful experience to see an ethical and productive farm in action but also a terrific base for adventures in the surf, whale watching, surf fishing, the regional gastronomy, the Otways Fly, the numerous horse and mountain bike trails, not to mention stunning displays of the night sky and the simple majesty of the native flora and fauna. There are rich experiences to be had right through all the four seasons.
Wongarra Farm. A slice of paradise.
