Barcoos Farmstays Bathurst

Farm Stay - New South Wales


The Hamer family settled on ‘Wardell’ in 1840 and the 7th generation Hamers are living on the farm today.

The Farmstay was started in 2009 and was named in honour of our Clydesdale, Barcoo.

Our main rural enterprise is the production of hay and silage. In addition, we run Merino sheep and a small herd of breeding cows.

Around the house we have Kelpie and Border Collie dogs, plenty of horses, a pet pig that does tricks and alpacas that often eat out of your hand.

Depending on the time of year  we have lambs and sometimes a poddy calf we bottle feed. We also have a beautiful variety of poultry.

We welcome you to join us at Barcoos – whether you’re a local looking for a ‘farm experience’ or a visitor looking for a few days away from ‘the big smoke’

What to expect

There’s always plenty of farm animals around. You’ll get to interact and feed our chickens, Alapaca, Lambs, Cuddle a cow, our Donkey and Pig do tricks for treats and of course a lead ride on a Pony!

We have dogs, that will sometimes leave a calling card near your caravan, which we do of course clean up. But they are friendly and love the farm, which is their home.

Depending on the time of year it can be hot, or cold or both.

The flies in summer can be pesky. It’s part of farm life, so please bring some insect repellant if you’re coming in warmer months.
