About Us

Set in country NSW is our delightful old Red Rattler Train awaiting those who like an adventure. Surrounded by nature, Kangaroo's and farm animals on 97 acres of private land. Making it a wonderful haven that's sure to relax your body and mind.

The Space

Hidden amongst the rolling hills of Cargo is our picturesque destination. If you ever wondered what it was like to wake up in the morning with the sounds of wildlife around you then our place is a must. Our train carriage dates back to the "Red Rattler" days with the Sydney train route still there for the eye to view. A steering wheel at the front where the train driver sat makes it a unique experience. New walkways have been built allowing you the opportunity to view the property. Our animals will welcome you and there is an abundance of food available from our vegetable and fruit tree gardens.

Guest Access

Access to our property from Orange NSW is along Coronation drive. Stay on this road until you see Edinboroh Rd turn off. Turn to the left along the dirt road until you see a sign saying McMurrays Lane. Turn right, follow this road until you see a sign at our front gate with the numbers 712. Your there! Keys to our property gate will need to be collected from Bissys Café & Catering Crn Anson and Warrendine street Orange.

Other Things to Note

You may see Kangaroo's, Echidna's, goats, and other wild animals roaming freely on our property. They have been doing this for a long time now and will not harm you if you leave them alone. We have limited water available onsite so we ask that you are conservative when using water. Please do not light outdoor fires onsite because the chance of it getting away and burning the property is a high fire danger.
