The Barracks, Tocal

Situated on one of Australia's oldest colonial working farms, The Barracks provides boutique accommodation on a unique heritage site.

Four suites have been beautifully restored to provide elegant comforts in the same space where convicts and farmhands worked and toiled over 150 years ago. 

Each suite allows guests to enjoy the same views of sweeping hillsides and colonial buildings in air conditioned comfort. For those cool evenings, at the push of a button, a restored fireplace is available to warm the sitting room.

  • The sitting room, kitchenette and bathroom are downstairs while upstairs are the sleeping quarters. Queen sized beds are in three of the suites with one suite providing two king sized single beds. Tea and coffee making facilities are available in each little kitchenette with a Nespresso machine, kettle, toaster and a bar fridge provided.
  • A breakfast hamper consisting of fresh and wholesome breakfast foods sourced from our local area is complimentary and delivered to your suite each morning of your stay.
  • If the view from the room isn’t enough, enjoy a cup of tea outside on the verandah while watching the farm animals graze nearby. While each suite has the same floor plans (Hazell and Waggoner suites having additional windows as at the ends of The Barracks building) they have all been furnished differently.
  • The Barracks are not suitable for children under the age of 13, however we do have accommodation on the Tocal College side, for families with children. 

In response to Coronavirus (COVID-19), additional safety and sanitation measures are currently in effect at this property. The health and safety of our staff and guests remain our top priority and we have taken all precautions to ensure you are well looked after on your stay.

Family Wedding

We stayed at The Barracks on the night of our son’s wedding & were so happy we did! From the very beginning, with booking with Rennae to checking out was made extremely trouble free by everyone concerned. The accommodation was wonderful including the fantastic breakfast basket of local produce delivered on the Sunday morning & the property is so beautiful. The hospitality was amazing. Michael the caretaker was extremely helpful & very welcoming. Nothing was a problem for him.

Amazing Venue

We recently stayed at The Barracks, Tocal after my daughter’s wedding. I cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough, the presentation and cleanliness was exceptional and the quaint rooms were divine. The following morning the breakfast bask left in our room was nothing short of amazing, filled with fresh produce which was delicious. The convenience of a short stroll to the accommodation from the reception venue was another plus as we didn’t have to drive anywhere. The surrounding property is also spectacular.
