The best luxury farmhouse stays around Western Australia

Get back to nature with a tranquil stay at one of Western Australia’s most luxurious farmhouses


If you’ve long been dreaming of a home among the gumtrees it might be time to trade suburban living for a few nights in an idyllic farmhouse. But don't worry, there’s no need to sacrifice luxury and creature comforts for a countryside stay.

We’ve rounded up the Western Australian farmhouses with a dedication to cosmopolitan amenities and elegant finishes. From an outdoor bath on a biodynamic vineyard to a cattle farm with a stone-clad outdoor fireplace and a French-door fitted country cottage among ripening orchards, we’ve found farmhouses to satisfy even the fussiest of city dwellers.
