Hallstead Farm – Barkers Creek

“A rambling rural property — this is stunning.”


Located on a hill top only 5km from Castlemaine, Hallstead Farm enjoys commanding views in every direction: to Mt Franklin, Wombat Hill in Daylesford and Mt Alexander. Winding paths through an extensive garden has something to see at every turn.

The garden is designed to offer a cooling reprieve from the summer heat with plenty of water features amongst a large collection of trees and shrubs offering lots of shaded areas to sit and relax.

Other features include a large dam, a double decker bus, citrus grove, an extensive chicken run, large vegetable garden and plenty more.

This is a garden to discover and explore that you won’t want to miss.
