For consideration (as an example):
- the farm may possibly be an attraction en route to Chillagoe Caves…
- arriving at the farm early morning…Talk on Organic Farm Principles..
- followed by a drive around the farm to watch how the process of Organic farming is carried out…
- back to the homestead for morning tea…
- a boat ride down the Walsh River to the weir wall (approximately two kilometres)

- some 100 plus different species of birdlife reside on the island which follows
- the river and including an Osprey Eagle (photo of Osprey nest) included in photo selection
- also be fortunate to spot a fresh water crocodile… (Harmless, NO not armless, Harmless)
- Back to the homestead for lunch before heading off next leg of the journey to Chillagoe caves…
