A Paradise ...A Paradise ...Fawcett Cottage Farmstay is between the  Marysville area and the High Country of Victoria, Australia. It is the ultimate in friendly farm family fun. Kids just adore our farm with all the funny friendly animals. Our farm is quite unique, it is very much like the Collingwood Children's Farm in Melbourne. Some children spend their whole holiday in the chook shed collecting eggs,others just love feeding the cows and others take a liking to the goats and spend most time with them. Definite favourite are Chester and Sweetie and Lou lou ,the miniature horses. You can groom Lou Lou and give her a wash. We have rabbits and guinea pigs for you to hold. We have George,the pig .Peppa has gone to another farm to have babies. There is always something for everyone here,even down to playing trucks in the mud or on the playground!!!!

Our beautiful large cottages cater for 7 and 10 people each in beds plus  double divans in the living room.There are also two cots available. They each have a fully self contained kitchen with everything you will need as well as a wood fire and  gas or electric heater. Our one bedroom cottage is so lovely for a small family with beautiful views and all amenities.

The cottage gardens and verandas around the cottages provide a restful and private area for guests to relax. From the cottages you can see our donkeys, cows, sheep, goats, our geese on the dam,all kinds of water birds & native birds such as king parrots, rosellas, blue wrens, cockatoos, kookaburras and sometimes even a pelican or two.We have chooks,ducks,turkeys  as well as baby chicks if you are lucky.

Sunset from the porch is an experience not to be missed offering spectacular views of the surrounding hills & the distant Black Ranges.
