Bed and pillows were comfortable. I didn't think twice to sleep on it. White bed linens was clean and fresh. We had a good sleep!!!! Also, Glen was kind to give me a band aid when i asked for it. We had a pleasant stay!!! Thanks Shearing Shed :)

Trevor and Anne were lovely, the design and decor of the rooms created great talking points with the kids about the history of the wool industry in Australia.

We are a family of 6. The family room was great, enough beds for everyone(When we stay in motels/hotels we generally have to make up the sofa bed on arrival). Very clean, tidy and large rooms. Would definately recommend.
