“What a wonderful morning visiting the Alpacas (with special guests, Lola, some noisy cows and hungry sheep). An absolute must if you are visiting the area or even just looking to get out of Sydney for a day. Who knew you could be so passionate about Alpacas, but Sean certainly is and it made for a unique and memorable experience. We learned so much! Sharon’s breakfast spread and deep care for her guests was above and beyond. The farm is incredibly well maintained and it felt like you were visiting a family friend. 10/10 would do again, rain or shine.”

Love my weekend spent in an OZ farm (iris lodge farm) . First time to learn about sheeps and alpacas host we're natural and showed us and let us experience their daily activity within the form. They are nice and welcoming too. Bonus was the pet alpaca and sheep, both friendly to us❤️ meet their hardworking sheep dog who loves pat animals are all well taken care off and all look happy and clean. All tamed and safe to pat them, feed and take photos (just follow the host instructions on which part of the farm animals not to be touch). And another bonus was the breakfast cooked on site with the relaxing outdoor setting with Billy outside would love to do it again and highly recommended for those who love to experience a natural OZ farm
Such an amazing experience! Sean and Sharon's hospitality are top-notch! The animals are looked after quite well. We loved the interaction with the animals, and we loved how they all have different personalities. Sean and Sharon knew them by names, and they happily shared with us some of the stories about their farm animals. Billy, Ellie, Ronnie, Lucas, Lola were the stars of the experience, but there sure are a lot more of them to meet! Such lovely creatures that we surely would like to see again! We highly recommend this experience to anyone who loves nature, and animals. Sean and Sharon's lodge is a nice sanctuary, we had such a fun-filled day, but relaxing at the same time. Oh, and did I say that the breakfast with a view was amazing? Cause it sure was!

It was lovely meeting Billy the Alpaca and Ellie the Sheep on this experience (as well as our wonderful hosts Sean and Sharon). It was amazing to be able to meet and feed both the sheep and alpacas. The alpacas are very cute. Sean and Sharon were very personable and knowledgeable so it was easy to talk to them. We also appreciated the homemade breakfast on their wonderful property. My girlfriend and I highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to escape the city and have a unique experience with some sheep and alpacas.
Amazing experience learning about Alpacas.
Sean and Sharon were great hosts, and the animals were really cute too. Loved it!
This is a great experience for everyone! Sean and Sharon are very friendly and they treat they animals well. At first we thought it's just a breakfast with alpacas around, but no, this is much more. You got to feed the sheep's, horses and alpacas, you got to interact with them a lot. Not only the kids enjoyed it so much, we adults also had a lot fun. I would definitely recommend this unique experience to all my friends and colleagues. Thanks Sean and Sharon!
Honestly, the highlight of our weekend! Such a lovely couple and a unique experience- you felt like you were sharing their lives, and we did some fantastic things. Fed the sheep and alpacas, and got to play with/bottle feed some very tiny little lambs! The breakfast was amazing too, and they catered to mine/my husbands dietary needs very well :)
Breakfast with Alpacas was fantastic! Sean and his wife were really welcoming and we had an authentic experience on the farm. The alpacas were amazing and we also got to meet the other farm animals including cute little lambs! The breakfast was delicious, and there was a wonderful range of fresh fruits, eggs, toast etc. A great way to spend a morning and would highly recommend.
A memorable experience - feeding alpacas, sheep and lambs and ending with a huge breakfast while looking over the farm.
super experience with fantastic hosts, the setting was perfect and the animals were great. we weren't looking from behind a fence, we were in there with the animals and interacting with them and breakfast was wonderful
Sean and Sharon really cared for their alpacas and flock. Beautiful farm, lovely animals, fantastic brekky! I’ll go again
this was an incredible experience and ill never forget how much we bonded with billy the alpaca! i loved the breakfast it was generous! i loved the hosts they were amazing! HIGHLY recommend this to any and ALL!
Amazing experience and would definitely do again. Sean and Sharon were so friendly and welcoming. They were very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. The hands-ons activities made this experience even more enjoyable. This experience exceeding my expectations.
It was such an amazing experience meeting all the different animals, feeding and learning about each of them. Sean and Sharon were both so welcoming and easy to talk. The breakfast was delicious. I can’t wait to come back!
Amazing experience! A definite must when you’re in the Central Coast. Will definitely be coming back! :)
Had a wonderful time up at the Iris lodge with the alpacas. The animals were well looked after and lots of love shown by the hosts.
Awesome experience! Don’t forget to bring bananas for Billy
The Alpaca experience is AMAZING! This is a must see if you are up or near the central coast area. Sean and his wife were excellent hosts and the close up experience you with the Alpacas and the farm itself is truly unique. I am 100% coming back! Thank you guys for such a great experience!!!
This experience was hands down amazing!! We got to go into the paddocks and hand feed the animals, which was more than we expected. The hosts are lovely, and easy to talk to, answering any question you have. Definitely a must do!
Absolute amazing experience interacting with the animals, having fed them directly and walked across the fields to reach and see other animals. Sean was very welcoming and friendly upon arrival and showed us everything about the farm. I left feeling very special and well informed about life on the farm and livestock.
Great experience. The animals and owners were lovely and you could get in amongst it all with their routine feeding and animals were approachable. We were also given some interesting history about the farm. I thoroughly recommend this tour!
It was definitely one of the best farm experience I’ve had, we got to feed the Alpacas, cows and sheep close up without the dividing fence. Sharon and Sean was extremely accommodating and friendly.
I attended this activity with some friends and it was amazing! We were in a small group and were able to feed animals and ask questions to the lovely couple who run the farm. This experience was above my expectations and was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon
A beautiful location and Sharon and Sean are so friendly and welcoming. This experience will be enjoyed by all - young & old. We had a tour of the farm and got to feed alpacas, sheep and cows. Will definitely visit again and highly recommend to all!
