The Gippsland Plains are an untapped resource when it comes to day-trips out of Melbourne.
Usually, you’ll stick to the smooth surface of the Princes Highway, heading out to the Lakes, or further up the coast toward NSW.
Abington Farm is a spot just out of Heyfield. It’s a 2 & ½ hour drive from Melbourne, surrounded by green fields filled with mostly dairy cattle, with the Great Dividing Range to the north.
Situated on 36-acres, Abington Farm has 4 fully self-contained private units to stay in, and we’re right into the old dairy building that they’ve renovated.
The Dairy at Abington Farm features all the basics you’d expect with 2 bedrooms, 2 beds, 1 bathroom.
There’s also outdoor seating and a brazier to light up and take in the sunset. You’ll also find a swimming hole just a 500m trek across the fields from the dairy.
The Dairy at Abington Farm will set you back $100 per night, book it via Riparide here.
