Visit beautiful Wonga Homestead & explore the wine & cherry regions surrounding Young NSW. Better yet, grab a bottle of wine and a cherry pie on your way & bunker in to enjoy the huge pool, fresh renovation & country farm lifestyle.

Situated only minutes from the thriving centre of Young, in the Hilltops Region of NSW, Wonga Homestead is a peaceful, private country home. Built in 1912, the established house and gardens are an oasis amid a working cattle and sheep farm.

There is lots to explore in the Cherry Capital, and the surrounding towns and villages. Enjoy the local orchards, wineries, cafes, and boutique stores.

Or simply stay on the farm, relax by the pool, tennis court, open fireplaces and beautiful gardens.
