In the heart of the Dandenong Ranges lies Nurture Creek, a serene farm-stay where we've had the pleasure of hosting over 100 families in the last two years. Our mission? To create an oasis where each visitor’s dream of a perfect farm stay comes to life. We've crafted our packages with care, ensuring each one offers a unique way to engage with farm life.


Room Only – Self Guided Retreat: Immerse yourself in the tranquil beauty of the Dandenong Ranges. With this DIY option, you get a comfortable base, freedom to explore, and minimal interaction with your hosts. This is perfect for those who want to venture out, attend nearby events, or simply relax in a space that’s all their own.

Some Cuddles - The Heart-Warming Encounter: Looking for a bit more interaction? With our ‘Some Cuddles’ package, spend an hour per day with Farmer Bek or Adam, and meet the loving souls that call Nurture Creek home. From feeding and collecting eggs, to brushing horses and belly-scratching pigs, this experience helps you spend time up close with your chosen furry friends, or share moments with all. This is where hearts connect and joy blossoms.

Whole Experience - The Ultimate Journey: For the animal enthusiast, the ‘Whole Experience’ is more than a stay; it's an immersion, a two-hour adventure each day into the soul of farm life. Delve deep into the lives of our animals, learn their quirks, their needs, and understand their silent language. Connect deeply with horses and form bonds. This is the essence of Nurture Creek.


We recommend a 3 night minimum in order to maximise your experience of both the farm and the Yarra Ranges.

2 nights means that by the time you check-in and check-out you’re only at the farm for one full day day and that just isn’t enough time to relax, enjoy, recharge and connect with the animals.

If you cant stay on your last night because you need to get back to work and/or school, you can at least enjoy the farm for the whole day - no rushing to get the kids up and packed and out by 10am. But if you can swing it on the weekends, you can head straight to work/school on Monday morning - have a laundry in the cottage so uniforms and work clothes can be ready to go!



The Cottage is a quaint little home perfect for a family or two couples to come and enjoy some much needed time to relax and refresh. Take some time out from your ordinary life with all the mod cons so you can slow down and connect.

The Log Cabin renovation is underway and it will be available soon!
