IF YOU YEARN TO GET AWAY FROM THE CITY FOR A RELAXING DAY ON THE FARM, LEAVE YOUR iPADS AT HOME, TURN OFF YOUR PHONES…..WE HAVE SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!
Fern Valley Ranch is our small, multi-purpose farm, nestled in a wooded area of Somersby; north of Sydney near the Gosford Reptile Park. We welcome individuals and groups to experience a “Day on the Farm”. Browse our website at your leisure and contact us when you’re ready!
A murmuring creek runs through our property, which features two waterfalls. The tallest fall, Paleesade Fall, has a drop of more than 10 metres, followed by shorter cascades until the creek disappears into the gully below.
On one side of the creek is a sheer wall, which makes the area cool and shaded with an exuberant growth of ferns and native plants.
Fern Valley Ranch is home to friendly cows, chickens and ducks, so make sure you don’t miss feeding time!
With over 2,000 citrus trees, a “Day on the Farm” includes a chance to pick your own- depending on the weather and season.
Though there are cattle, citrus trees, hydroponics, experimental aquaculture (yabbies) on the farm, a considerable part of the property is left in its natural state.
Our two bushwalking tracks, ranging from 30 minutes to 2 hours, meander through gardens of Giant (Gymea) Lilies, tall eucalypts, open forest, and an abundance of lush, green ferns, for which our property is named.
There are a few dams on the property, some of them make for a picturesque home to several water lilies.
Take some time out & rest on the tranquil banks of our largest dam.
