About Us

Gordon Country is a working cattle producing property which breeds calves as well horses and over the past 40 years has provided a unique interaction for city children who are amazed and enthralled to see these animals roam freely over the property.  Obviously a great contrast to city life and one that children seem to resonate with beautifully.

Our property is simply unparalleled in size and because of this, we also extend the opportunity for our guests to bring the four legged members of their family – horses and dogs!  Regulations do apply however, so please see our other pages on this point.

Gordon Country has and we are fortunate to have done so, welcomed guests for almost 40 years. Families, school groups, scout groups, recreational and sporting groups, special interest groups including horse riders, bush walkers, bird-watchers, astronomers, artists, university students, orienteering lovers and mountain cyclists have all discovered Gordon Country, returning year after year to this beautiful location.

During his lifetime the late R M Williams was a frequent visitor to Gordon country expressing that it is ‘one of the most beautiful rugged valleys in Australia’.

A generational experience – we’re so happy to see many children who holidayed here as youngsters returning with their own children and grandchildren!   It seems we’re almost part of the family…. and what a pleasure it is to see generation after generation swimming in the pristine creeks, skylarking in the open country or pulling fresh yabbies from the waters edge.

 ACTIVITIES:

Set on more than 4,000 acres – Gordon Country provides an endless and eclectic array of activities. Whether it’s relaxation you want and reading a book by a running creek, or getting active and hiking to one of the many mountain peaks, rest assured you won’t be disappointed with the adventure or laid back selections..
