We had a wonderful stay at Tiandi wildlife. It's a beautiful location. The accommodation is wonderful and a comfortable place to relax with your family and friends. The kitchen has everything you need (although a different, non stick pan would be handy) to cook. Make sure you pack all the food you need.
Spending time with Jules and the baby kangaroos and wallabies was very special and the kids loved getting the chance to feed them.
There's a beautiful, peaceful river within 15 minutes drive for swimming and relaxing.
The dirt road is in pretty decent condition.
We'd love to return.

We all came away very relaxed and energised after our stay at Tiandi Farm.
Avery peaceful place to stay with easy access to towns such as Braidwood.
The décor was very tasteful and accommodation was very clean and comfortable with all the necessary conveniences. Lots of lovely places to sit outside and enjoy the tranquility. My daughter loved interacting with both the farm animals and the native wildlife. The very lovely hosts are available if you need them.
They produce the best honey I have ever tasted!!
Look forward to staying again soon!
