There is no doubt about it, Summers at Cross Park are hot! 

We think summers at Cross Park are best spent with early morning rises, lazy days by the pool, water sports on the river, and chilled afternoons on the verandas. Crisp early mornings soon turn into long steamy hot days, followed by balmy evenings. 

Water babies

For those that enjoy the water, there is no shortage of it at Cross Park.

Guests can keep cool in our 12-meter stone swimming pool, or chill under the shade of the London Plane trees. If you want to be just a little bit more adventurous, head down to the river to cool off after a picnic lunch and siesta on the beach. The kids and dogs just love it down at the beach - and the best part, there's never any crowds, you'll have the entire beach to yourselves.

Down at the beach you'll find fishing rods and kayaks to keep you busy and the BBQ offers the perfect chance to whip up a quick lunch. As the evening starts to draw in, light the fire pit and enjoy the balmy evening and total peace and quiet of the countryside. On a clear night star gazing is from the beach is always spectacular.

For those that want to stay closer to home, the 1830’s sandstone house offers a cool retreat - the homestead stays naturally cool due to the thick sandstone, with the added bonus of air-conditioning on the upper floor. The landscaped gardens are perfect for families and or pets to play and the pool is never far away. With the pool lights on, it's a great place to enjoy a warm summer evening. 

The large, sweeping balcony is also a great spot for a sun-downer. It's a lovely spot to take in the views of the horse paddocks.


What's going on at the farm in summer... 

Mother goat, Hiccup welcomed us with baby twin boys mid-August, Victor and Toro. Full of beans and almost full size now, the boys have blossomed into such handsome lads. Their arrival was shortly followed by Fern giving birth to her gorgeous kid, Clover. She's so dainty and sweet and at 6 weeks old she's growing into a beautiful lady. And just when you think you’ve seen enough cuteness, along came Gabe...

Our rescue mare Mystic arrived at Cross Park in foal, but was struggling from the effects of the drought from her previous home in northern NSW. We ensured Mystic received enough care and nutrition throughout the last stages of her pregnancy, and she delivered a healthy little colt in October. Gabe is the sweetest thing, a real little smoocher.
