New Norcia for a monastery tour is 1.5 hours drive inland perfect for lunch at the hotel and purchase some delicious bread or cake at the Bindoon Bakehouse on the way back to Sandy Lake Farm. .

Farm is very pretty cleared parkland with mature gums, pines, tea trees and blackbutt trees. Lake has islands and is easy to walk around. Recent guest trained every day by running in the paddocks for a couple of hours per day yes he was very enthusiastic and on an even keel while training for an international yachting event. Farm perimeter is easy walking 3.5kms to see all the farm animals and take an easy stroll past the neighboring 23000 olive trees. This is a quiet restful garden oasis down a 3.4 km gravel road. Bring binoculars, camera for great night stargazing or farm photos in the best light, warm clothing winter can be minus, change of comfortable soft soled shoes in house please.
