Always a favourite of the many activities at Twamley Farm and depending on the time of year, you are invited to feed the pet lambs, pat the sheep in the house paddock or get to know the farm dogs better. If you are feeling adventurous you can even get involved with whatever farm activities are happening on the day, which could be moving sheep or cattle, feeding out hay, checking on ewes and lambs, drenching or shearing sheep.
Twamley Farm has a picturesque trout dam that is well stocked with rainbow trout. We provide some basic fishing gear for our guests’ fishing pleasure. It is a catch and release policy. There is also a restored wooden row boat for guests to enjoy some time on the dam. The farm’s Tea Tree Rivulet also has some great wild trout fishing holes that are marked on our farm map. If you are a keen trout fisher please feel free to bring your own gear and try your luck.
Bird Watching and Wildlife
Twamley Farm has a diversity of bird life making it perfect for birdwatching. Eleven of the state’s twelve endemic bird species can be seen here throughout the diverse microclimates, from the dry schlerophyll forests and low lying thickly vegetated creek beds to the farm’s gullies and temperate rainforest. Golden Gully is known as a favourite breeding spot of the Swift Parrot, returning each year from Victoria to nest amongst the towering Blue Gums.
If you prefer the night life you can go on an evening walk where you will often encounter wallabies, possums, kangaroos and even Tasmanian devils.
