The Dennis family extend a warm welcome to this historic sheep farming property, located between Birregurra and Colac. Tarndwarncoort – or ‘Tarndie’ as it’s affectionately called by the locals – offers accommodation, wool-shop, tours and events. Tarndie is one of Victoria’s oldest surviving homesteads, and is the continuation of one of Australia’s oldest family farms. Today, the Dennis family still grow Polwarth wool and invite you to share farm’s bucolic setting.
Visitors to Tarndie can meet a Polwarth in the Gardens, find bespoke yarns in the Woolshop, and enjoy a great cup of locally roasted coffee. Guests are welcome to make an overnight experience and stay in the Farmer’s Cottage amidst the working sheep farm, or the newly refurbished Stables Studio.
Special events are also welcome at the Homestead – having hosted many lunches, weddings, concerts, workshops, meetings and retreats over the past 175 years, we can make your event very special, in a very special setting.
Check our website and blog for events, special offers and our online Woolshop.

NEW! We have a sample card of our range of yarns that we will send free to a wool crafter anywhere in Australia. They can get a feel of our beautiful Polwarth wool yarn and see a true colour before ordering yarn online. Knitting, crochet, and making things by hand is the perfect thing to do during isolation in the cool weather.
