Located just 10km from the township of Nhill, Nhillbilly Farm is a B&B farmstay like no other. Hosts Sharon and Lofty offer a unique experience with glamping style accommodation and wholesome dining, all within the serene setting of their beautiful farm.

Nhillbilly Farm is set upon 100 acres of trees, birdlife and dams, providing a serene and secluded setting, surrounded by many of the natural attractions the Wimmera has to offer. The farm, located on Uthmeyers Road, was bought from the Uthmeyer family and has since been home to Sharon Maloney and Lofty Turgoose.

The couple originally transformed their space into a place for family and friends to stay when they had their wedding on the property. The weekendlong event was such a success and left their guests gushing with excitement, so much so that Sharon and Lofty decided that others might also like to discover and experience the hidden gem they call home.

From the moment of arrival at Nhillbilly Farm, Sharon is a warm and welcoming host and has a real passion for providing guests with a memorable experience. A city-dweller most of her life, Sharon uses her own perspective to really highlight the simplicity and magic that makes rural life so special.

The camping area of the farm includes ten glamping-style bell tents tucked away between the trees, with comfortable bedding and ample room to relax and enjoy. The fire pit and eating area sit upon the edge of the dam, which is perfect for a quick dip to cool off in the summer months and home to a few local yabbies, making for a tranquil and serene setting. Rustic and completely charming, the old horse stables of the farm are home to the bathing and toilet amenities and the open air showers and bathtub are truly a unique experience in themselves!

If you’re after a taste of some wholesome country dining, Sharon offers guests the chance to have her cook for you. And, with a background of cooking and food photography (and so much more!), combined with the luxury of having fresh local produce at her fingertips, the sensory experience is hard to beat. “Breakfast is included in the price of the overnight stay; we do a cook up of bacon, eggs, tomatoes and that sort of thing with fresh orange juice, we can also provide a two course dinner if guests would like.” Says Sharon. “We’ve also put in a pizza oven and have been doing takeaway pizzas on the weekends for the public. It’s gotten so busy I’ve had to put on staff!”

Nhillbilly Farm has been a destination for many travellers up and down the Western Highway, with most guests stopping in for one or two nights and some staying up to a week. The farm has also hosted birthdays, hens parties, family gatherings and more, with Sharon and Lofty looking to develop the space even further.
