Known for spectacular, Pinterest-worthy weddings; the pretty in pink Mona Farm is making a statement in the premium accommodation realm with the introduction of their most boujee Guest House yet, ‘The Shearer’s Quarters’.

Sleeping two adults, this self-contained accommodation is perfect for a romantic country weekender. The open-plan living includes a full-kitchen with dining table, laundry, lounge room, sun drenched bathroom, bedroom and alfresco. Marrying old-world charm and new-world comforts the cosy accom is designed to celebrate love, and an unwavering admiration for art.
On entry, guests are greeted by a striking 1.8 x 1.8 metre acrylic painting by the award-winning (yet polarising) Australian artist, Adam Cullen.
