We absolutely loved our (unfortunately short) stay at the Henderson Park Farm Retreat. The view from our cabin, looking across the creek/lake was picturesque and peaceful. The cabin was well-equipped and perfectly placed to catch the breeze which swept through the screen doors

We booked a family holiday and stayed 5 nights in the lodge. Having grown up not too far away I was really surprised at how good this place is.The location far exceeded what I though the area had to offer and the accommodation was excellent. The facilities were excellent with

Thanks for reviewing us - don't you just love surprises ....except for the visiting pet pig type of surprise! ; ) We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Hedlow Lodge right on the water there. We are very convenient to both Rockhampton and the Capricorn Coast and to the variety of local attractions including all the beautiful mountains to climb, Capricorn Caves and our local The Caves Country Pub to name a few! Our website has a blog page in which we recommend some things to do on a 3 -5 night stay here at Henderson Park which might be of interest to you next time you come along to make the most of the regions attraction. Have a wonderful 2019 and we might meet again someday! Warm regards Niki

We stayed at the farm for one night and we loved the stay here. It really feels like a retreat because of the location of the apartments (800m from reception) and the quietness. Also because of the staff, who are really friendly and are keen to give a tour on the farm. We loved

Hi there, thank you for leaving your review after your Christmas Function on the weekend! We love having the support of other local businesses and we so pleased you and your furry friend enjoyed the place. Thank you for particularly review our wheelchair accessible room and facilities. We have considered airconditioning so many times over the years and its getting harder to not not move toward it, but I do agree that the noise would be a distraction and a detraction from the peacefulness of the place. We have insulated all the rooms, provide ceiling fans/pedastol fans and the rooms are well ventilated as you said, and we find most people are spending a lot of the time out doors in that beautiful creek or on the deck for it to be too much of a bother. Haha, I know what you mean about holiday destinations being somewhere you have to "travel to". But what luck you can drive half an hour only from the Capricorn Coast or Rockhampton and still get away from it all (without having to worry about who is going to feed the dog at home!) Thanks again! Warm regards Niki

Actually we booked the Barrett House at Henderson Park Farm Retreat for just two nights, but if we had known in advance where would stay we definitely would have booked a few more days. Niki and her family offered amazing hospitality. The BBQ was great, the wine was delicious,

Thank you! That is such a lovely review. I do love Barrett House, and it was the original homestead on this part of the property - built when my grandmother and grandfather got married - which has since been completely refurbished. We love seeing it making memories still. It is a lovely outlook, different from the rest of the accommodation, but so private and with access to all the same activities. Thank you for taking the time to post, it really means a lot and we do hope to see you again! Warm regards Niki

Hi Lori, apologies for the delay in reply we have been having trouble with our internet connectivity! We are a very relaxed pet friendly venue. There is no fully fenced area, the dogs don't have to be on lead just under your control. We find they tend to claim their space quite quickly and stay close to their owners. We have 2 pet friendly cabins, your fur babies are welcome to come inside we just ask they stay off the bedding and furniture, and if going out for the day, you take advantage of our large kennels up at the house to leave your pet in so we can keep an eye on them for you as they are not oermitted to stay locked up in the cabin unattended. If there are other guests staying with pets we suggest a "meet and greet" and if there are any issues (there usually aren't) just keep the dogs to your own cabin vicinity but there is at least 80m of space between the cabins and 2 garden beds. I hope this helps! If you have any further questions or would like to make a booking, please do not hesitate to contact us again! You can book direct and ask any further questions via our website or on 0409631451 or view photos of previous furry friends stays on our FB page!

Hi there and thank you for contacting us. We have two pet friendly cabins available at Henderson Park, please view photos of Cabin 1 or 2 in previous travelers photos or at our website. Pets are $10 per night but are welcome inside the cabins we just ask only that they stay off the bedding and furniture. We are a genuine pet friendly stay with plenty of room to run around off lead and walking tracks, shelter and fresh water. Your pet is guaranteed to have just as much fun (if not more!) as you!

Hi thanks for contacting us. We host a lot of wonderful and different weddings at Henderson Park. I would recommend a visit to our Facebook Page or our website for further information and photos or give us a call or email. Have you been to Henderson Park before? We usually do inspection by appointment to view the facilities which takes approximately an hour. We use this time to show you around the property and accommodation, view a look book of previous weddings for ideas, discuss pricing and your ideas for the wedding and then you have some time to spend with your partner having a look around, taking photos and getting a feel for the place. If you have any further questions or would like to arrange a time to come out and have a look around, please do not hesitate to contact us again. Warm regards Annika

Hi Peter L, thanks for contacting us. Did you mean to stay in a Hedlow Lodge room or in a Cabin? That's no problem if you all sleep together, the main bed is a queen or there is 2 king single beds in the Lodge Rooms (push together for a bigger bed) or a combination of other types of beds in the cabins. What dates did you have in mind? If you wish you can check our website for further information or dates or contact us via email. Hopefully we might get to meet your family soon! Warm regards Annika and Ryan

Hi Amanda, thank you for contacting us. We usually don't do camping unless the whole place is booked by the one group, for a party for example. If this is the case we have a large open camping area available, with some power and direct access to jetty, creek frontage, undercover area and gas bbq, unisex toilet block with 2 showers and 3 toilets and very close to the rest of the accommodation. Please contact us if you would like to discuss a booking in further detail as we can be flexible with the booking requirements for camping.
