Activities on Fairfield Farm

Walking and jogging
Walking and jogging on the farm roads among the orchards.

Stroll along on the two well marked Orchard Routes that follow the farm roads.  Alternatively, put on a pair of hiking boots and go explore the rocky mountain.  There are two sites with bushman paintings very close to the cottages.  These also serve as wonderful spots from where to gaze over the Ceres Valley and its pink mountains at sunset.

Fairfield Dam
Ideal for skiing/rowing (bring own boats), swimming and bass fishing.

Plunge pool and swing
Splash it out in the crisp blue plunge pool, while kids are playing with the swing in the pine trees.

Be on the lookout for fish eagle, hadeda, klipspringer, duiker, mongoose, meerkat, geese, guinea-fowl, pheasant and numerous other species of birdlife.
