About The Farm
Located at Wahgunyah (35 mins from Yarrawonga), “Quondong” is The Play Projects farm. With a number of custom-built spaces, the farm has been designed with therapeutic benefits in mind. At each turn, you’ll find something new to explore.
Find the veggie garden, chook house and bike shed to the right of the homestead; the swimming pool to the right; the sandpit, climbing logs and fire pit to the rear; and the sensory garden with custom-built climbing frames to the front. The bike track extends around the property’s perimeter and the river wraps behind both the cottage and the homestead - great for swimming and kayaking.
With 9 bedrooms between the glorious historic homestead and the newly-built cottage, the farm is perfect for both self-led family retreats and therapist-led multi-day programs.
The original 1890’s homestead is the heart of the farm. This magnificent building features 4 bedrooms, full-equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and 2 dining room/living areas, sunroom and laundry room.
The newly-built cottage is just metres from the Homestead and features 5 bedrooms, open plan kitchen/living/dining area, bathroom, laundry and large deck area to the rear which overlooks the river.
Food at The Farm
The kitchens at the farm are fully-equipped with everything you need, and the pizza oven and BBQ areas are great for getting the whole group involved in cooking activities.
For those visiting the farm on a therapist-led program, all food and snacks are provided. Our focus on healthy, hearty food comes alive during these programs as participants are encouraged to pick produce from the veggie garden and learn new skills in the kitchen.
We are more than happy to cater for all dietary needs and sensitivities too. Just ask us when you book your retreat.

Whether you’re visiting the farm as a self-led family or your child is attending one of our therapist-led multiday programs, play and nature will be at the centre of your experience.
Our experienced team of Occupational Therapists have tailored the retreat program to ensure it provides an intensive therapeutic experience for each individual.
Our programs focus on developing sustainable routines and building independence with daily living skills to support NDIS participants with goals of future independent living.
