Thompson's Valley Country Experience Close to Sydney

Located in: Upper MacDonald
Nestled on the banks of the Macdonald River, Thompson’s Valley is the perfect place for an active family to have room to grow and explore or for a relaxed couple looking for a quieter time.

Surrounded by national park and the Macdonald River, enjoy wildlife and nature at its best. The two-hectare block with a traditional farm cottage is an ideal location to have room away from the busy city but still be within a relatively short drive. A mixture of open paddocks and native bush is on your doorstep.

This property is home to a wide range of wild live, including birds, frogs, crickets, goannas, wombats and wallabies.

The nearby old-style township of St Albans is on the banks of the Macdonald River, a tributary of the Hawkesbury River. St Albans is around 90 kilometres north west of Sydney. St Albans is in the MacDonald Valley, the setting of horse and mountain bike competitions, mountain runs, fishing competitions, river cruises and old-fashioned visits to the historic pub for a drink or a meal. The area is full of history and stories from Australia's past. Less than two hours from CBD Sydney but you are in another world.
