A unique place for all guests to enjoy


The Bunkhouse is part of the original “Tyrone” homestead. Over 30 years ago, one quarter of the building was picked up and moved into the “backyard” for the new homestead to be built.

In 2008, Andrew and Kylie began restoring the remains of the original house. Today it contains memorabilia from over 115 years of “Tyrone’s” farming history.

The Bunkhouse is a perfect spot for many low key and relaxed occasions. School Camps, Bridal parties, Work functions, Birthday parties, Xmas parties, Hens/Stag do’s or travellers on a budget.
