Stay onsite in the beautiful Tocal Barracks. 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 the sleeping quarters are located upstairs. 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 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. For more information on the Tocal Barracks and additional accomodation options on the College, please follow the links below.

Cannot recommend Tocal Homestead and Sprout catering enough. After losing our original Wedding venue in November (for January) we contacted Tocal who were more than happy to help. They couldnt have made the process of re-planning our wedding any easier. Nothing was too much trouble, everything was seamlessly organised and communication was amazing. Despite a number of hurdles Tocal and Sprout catering went above and beyond to ensure our day was pure perfection. Guests couldn't stop raving about the location of the venue and its natural beauty. Likewise, the guests loved the food which was absolutely delicious. Service on the night was impeccable and 5 star. We'd happily do the whole day over again. Loved every minute of it.
