Fernances Creek Farm is located in the lower Hunter Valley near Wollombi, approximately one hour north-west of Sydney. We breed a northern European horse called the Haflinger, known for their kind nature, easy going attitude and suitability for all disciplines. Haflinger horses are used for a range of purposes that include pleasure riding and competitive mounts. We also offer a full cross country training course and show jumping arena for instructors and their students, pony clubs and individuals. Why not rent the Clubhouse for your next event! At Fernances Creek we also offer farmstay accommodation in our 2-bedroom cottage, and camping in tents close to the Clubhouse. Or why not sample our “Old Stone Wall” wine, from grapes grown on the property.
Fernances Creek offer a range of equestrian events throughout the year, including our annual Jump in the Vines event.

“We had a Pony Club camp there last weekend and it was a fabulous time. The hosts were terrific too. Even though the weather wasn’t exactly as we ordered, the grounds held up very well to the occasional heavy showers, allowing the cross country jumping to safely continue. There was a good range of XC jumps spread over a reasonable size area. Plenty of room for show jumping with a good size warm up area. The club house was very good with good facilities, providing all the things required such as fridges, oven, cooktop, toaster, plenty of tables and chairs, even a toilet and shower.
We camped in a paddock next to the creek, with most people in tents and some staying in their floats. Some yards were available for the horses and some made their own temporary yards. We took our bicycles because other places we had been had things spread out over such a large area, but we did not have any need for them this time. The camping, club house, show jumping and XC were all pretty close and an easy comfortable walk. Definitely recommended.”
