  • The cottage at Lonely Goat Olives has provided much joy for guests from over 60 countries around the world.

  • A stunning looking Tuscan style Olive Grove with 2,500 olive trees!

  • Eco Friendly & Sustainable: the whole property is powered with solar power, the buildings have been built using techniques to control the internal temperature all year round so that air-conditioning is not required, the fire places use wood from the land, and the water is harvested from the rain. There is an orchard with fruit, herbs and veggies growing in the gardens, and a large chook house supplies both guests and owners with fresh eggs. Every year Lonely Goat Olives plans to add one more way of being self sufficient.

  • An ever expanding Olive Tree Nursery providing Olive Trees to most of Australia. Olive trees available in a variety of sizes.  The nursery also has Rosemary and Lavender available for purchase.

  • The small herd of Scottish Highland Cattle are simply spectacular, and will happily pose for photos.  The cattle help to keep the grass down, saving on the need to use petrol powered lawn mowers.

  • Member of The Australian Same-Sex Wedding Directory.  Lonely Goat Olives is an equality minded wedding venue, and guest cottage. Click here to see our listing
