Ross Farm presents a unique opportunity to experience contemporary country living in a rural setting, situated on the edge of Meeniyan, one of Gippsland’s most progressive small towns, renowned for good music and good food.

Despite its humble beginnings as a small working dairy farm, Ross Farm was designed to offer a unique architectural experience for it’s guests. The design approach was to explore the use of somewhat ordinary materials in unexpected ways, with design solutions that combine materiality, functionality + form. The intention was to design and make as much as possible on site.

The project began with the existing dairy, barn and shed building footprints, each building was considered individually and holistically, with site lines and private outlooks in mind.  The interiors were largely handcrafted by local wood + steel craftsmen. Having these skills on hand drove the design process. 

Whilst the Cabin, Barn and Dairy each offer a distinctly different aesthetic, a common language of rawness and restraint is carried through all, supported by the use of local materials where possible, with a view to keeping things authentic and celebrating the handcrafted.   

The property caters for many scenarios, a romantic weekend away, a country escape with family or friends, or book the whole site for groups of friends, extended family stays, retreats, workshops or weddings. 

Bookings can made directly though our website via link on each listing page, or via Airbnb.

The Cabin, Barn and Dairy calendars are available 4 months ahead, allowing those who want to book the whole property an open calendar.

We will add Event + Wedding packages in time, any enquiries before then please email.

Gift Vouchers can also be purchased, please email to organise.

The guest has a 12 month window to use the voucher, and can move the dates to a time suitable for them. A printed voucher can also be posted out to gift to the guest.
