Last weekend I visited Bella Vista Farm with my parents. Bella Vista Farm is located in Sydney’s North West; it is a picnic ground with 20 hectares of parkland and panoramic views. It was originally established in the late 1700s and is a link to some of Australia’s earliest developments. It is no longer a working farm but has historic features which demonstrate what it was like when the land was used in this way. The original homestead and farm buildings are open to the public once a month, but on the day I was there it wasn’t open. There are also some sheep on site. I really enjoyed visiting this location mainly because it was so tranquil. The land is so large and it wasn’t busy last weekend. It was a temporary escape from the real world. We all need that from time to time. I’m looking forward to the next occasion I visit Bella Vista Farm. I’d love to take a set of blog pictures here eventually too.
