Surrounding the Farm

Barrenjoey is set on beautiful and quiet Winton Road, which runs between Gumeracha and Birdwood. Part of its 5km length is lined with superb river red gums. Barrenjoey is not too far off the beaten track, being only 3.5km from Birdwood; it has magnificent views from every aspect of the house and its surrounds, and it has sprawling gardens which we spend every spare moment maintaining and improving.

Native birdlife is abundant, from sulphur crested cockatoos and other parrots to kookaburras and to small, fragile finches, and our resident blue wrens are testament to how one can become quite mesmerised with bird watching! Frogs happily croak nearby in our ponds, and our resident mob of kangaroos are at home wherever they may be grazing on the property.

Neighbouring properties include Murray Grey and thoroughbred horse studs, Torrens Valley Orchards for cherries and miles of vineyards. There are many fantastic wineries further afield including Kersbrook Hill, Lobethal Road and Bird in Hand.
