****IMPORTANT****

DO NOT TAKE THE STONEY CHUTE RD/ WHITNEY RD ROUTE THAT YOUR GPS TELLS YOU TO TAKE.

On the Lismore (Southern side) of Nimbin, take Stoney Chute Road, (signed to Kyogle/Cawongla)

Follow for 2km & turn left onto Mountain Top Rd (Sign to Georgica)

Follow for 4km to top of the hill, our entrance is signposted as Whitney Rd … it is a gravel road by the time you get to the property ... then go to the Cream sheds just inside the entrance.
