A Barn with Style

Ever  considered staying in a barn with style?    Our mudbrick barn with 2 bedrooms upstairs, offers a cosy experience, which is a perfect  group gathering venue.  At present, there is accommodation for up to 5 people with 2 bedrooms upstairs.    Perfect for larger groups to gather, when you are considering a get together in the country for family reunions, birthdays or just being away with lots of friends! A large verandah looks down onto the river valley and forest and has a barbeque and outdoor table setting.  There is a large  dining table and kitchen, which is ideal for dining together.

Walnut Picking Time

Saturday, May 11th, 2013


It’s walnut time and the annual “pick your own” season is in full swing.  From April until June every year the quiet at Fontani Fruit andNut Farm is broken by the nut harvest, when busloads of visitors arrive at the farm gate, keen to get their hands on  local produce.  Locals and visitors are welcomed in to pick their own chestnuts and walnuts. Fontanini’s 65ha also produces apples, avocados, pears, feijoas, persimmons, macadamias,  and hazelnuts.



The weather is just right for gathering the fallen nuts!!! Don’t forget to check out the farm store and Truffle winery on the way to Fonty Nut Farm! Seven Day Road offers it all!!!!

Hear from our guests

The oen that didn’t get away (beautiful drawing of a trout and fly) What a wonderful place!  We had the whole place to ourselves.  Caught trout in the lakes, redfin in the river and yabbies were a bonus.  As is always the case when one goes on holiday, our time here was too short.  Hope to return one day.  Beautiful place.
