Our Luxury EcoNest at Highfield is nestled in rolling farmland and perched above a rocky mountain stream. Our conservation area, which protects critically endangered habitat, a step away.  

Situated just 10 minutes off the Hume Highway, or 7 minutes from the Snowy Mountains Highway, we easily accessible for people travelling through to Canberra, Melbourne or Sydney.

Off-grid and off-line but with all the luxuries 

Highfield Farm and Woodlands’ accommodation, EcoNest,  is the perfect off-grid and off-line eco-retreat for couples, families or groups. Your eco-retreat doesn't mean you go without.  Solar panels and batteries will guarantee energy for your stay, while panoramic double-glazed windows will allow glorious views. 

A well-equipped kitchen will have you cooking up a storm with our farm-fresh produce and locally-sourced produce available for purchase. We also have special picnic hampers and local wine.

Your EcoHut comes with it’s own hen house too, so  you will have the freshest eggs for your breakfast. 

You’ll stay warm and cost with an internal wood fireplace and fire pit outside. The night sky will have you amazed. 

And, potentially the most important feature for your family, our farmstay is dog friendly!

If camping is more your style, be sure to check out our peaceful and isolated campsites.
