I am Mavis Goodhill and I married Peter Goodhill in 1981 and came to the family farm in Mount Hampton.
Peter’s family have farmed this land since 1928. We have raised five children here, and are now proud grandparents.
B&B / Farmstay
After the children left school I returned to teaching. During my long service leave I looked into tourism options and decided we should create some accommodation facilities around the Homestead. We now run a Bed & Breakfast / Farmstay as part of our farm, with four different accommodation options as well as camping facilities.
The success of our Farmstay venture has prompted my further interest in the development of tourism in the surrounding area, particularly in the development of Southern Cross as a destination for collectors of historical memorabilia.

We love sharing the farm and the early history of the area with visitors. We have a collection of early farm equipment and enjoy sharing stories from the early days of the property. It is always a pleasure to show guests around and share the interesting history of this region.
We own and run an active wheat and sheep station. Guests are welcome to meet our farm pets (from cats to kangaroos). Depending on the time of year you visit, you might get to experience seeding or harvesting the wheat, or be present in lambing or shearing season. We have a quick guide to the seasonal nature of the farm in our Farming Calendar
