With more than enough space for up to 20 people, Lavender Vale Homestead is the best place in Kwiambal National Park to stretch out and relax in comfort. For even bigger groups, you can book it simultaneously with Lavender Vale Cottage and take over the entire area, surrounded by open plains and foraging wildlife.

Bring binoculars for birdwatching – wedge-tailed eagles often soar overhead, and chattering cockatoos are plentiful in the area. Fishing enthusiasts will want to venture over to Macintyre or Severn River in search of Murray cod. There’s swimming and hiking too, lookouts and picnic spots by ironbarks and eucalypts.

After a long day exploring the park, you can retire to Lavender Vale Homestead and take advantage of its kitchen facilities, slow combustion wood heater, and hot showers. There’s even air-conditioning for the warmer months, though resting on the open verandah offers a cool respite for nature-lovers.

The size and position of Lavender Vale Homestead makes it ideal for extended families and adventure groups – indeed, anybody can settle in and make themselves at home in no time.

Conservation program:

Wild dog control program

Wild dogs can have significant impacts on other animals and are regarded as pests. Our wild dog control program operates in many NSW national parks and reserves. When carrying out such pest control, we aim to minimise the wild dogs’ effects on livestock and wildlife, while still maintaining dingo conservation in key areas.
