Located on a 15-hectare farm with vineyard, winery, avocado orchard and vegetable gardens, Burnside Organic Farm offers fully self-contained bungalows.  The bungalows have large baths, wood fires (only in winter) and large verandahs for relaxing.

Cool in summer and cosy in winter. The bungalows are solar passive and set apart in remnant bush providing peace and privacy for all guests. Children are welcome in the two bedroom bungalows and can play in the bungalow garden or explore the bush.  

Guests, who book a stay, have access to exclusive self-guided experiences.  On arrival you will be given a map to follow the 1.7km of walk trails. See the whole farm including the market garden, caper bushes, avocados trees and how animals are integrated into these systems.  A genuine working farm and winery.

Burnside Organic Farm is also home to a small family winery.  Jamie & Lara planted the grapes in 2001 and they handpick and make the wine onsite. Certified Biodynamic Demeter. Your guarantee the wine is organic from paddock to bottle.

Jamie & Lara chose the variety Zinfandel because of its luscious berry fruit characters. Keeping with the Italian theme, they also planted a white grape variety called Vermentino.  The wine is pale in colour, medium-bodied and the palate is full of sumptuous zesty lemon, stone fruit, pear and earthy minerality. It is an excellent food wine.  Both the Zinfandel & Vermentino are dry grown. The vines have to search deep for water, encouraging strong, deep resilient roots. 

The fruit is handpicked in early March. The Zinfandel is wild fermented in open vats. The Vermentino is pressed and wild fermented in barrel. Grapes are picked when the moon is waxing when sugar levels are at their best. The Zinfandel must is basket pressed and placed in a combination of new and old French oak barrels. The wine goes through malolactic fermentation in barrel and is aged for 12 months.

A lovely enchanting place. The experience was made great by Lara & Jamie. Lara is very prompt with her communications and it was a great help to settle most things. the cottages are comfortable, well maintained (our second time here) and equipped well. The fireplace is great to start and well explained by them. Lots of wood was available to do the same. We got free eggs from their farm and we had a good wine tasting session at their cellar door. The kids had a good tour of the farm with all the eco friendly organic measures on the farm explained so well by both Lara and Jamie. We will surely be back here again in the near future.

We really loved our stay at Burnside. It was extremely relaxing, private and had had a sense of understated luxury. We loved walking around the farm and watching the birds through the windows of our bungalow

Wonderful getaway yet easy access to main sights including the town area, Margaret River Farmer market on a Sat and various wineries. The bungalow is beautiful and functional. We love the fully equipped kitchen which come with an oven and even a dish washer. The filtered water was delicious as claimed and we think about it as we moved on to stay at other places. The best part about the house was the fireplace, the most wonderful way to stay warm during winter. We enjoyed waking up to the sound of birds chirping, exploring the farm and its surrounding area and even bought a bottle of their wine home. A pity we did not get to try the outdoor bath as it was winter.

Loved our stay so much! Very relaxing and loved the fire place and outside bath. Had everything we needed and we loved getting the fresh produce from the farm - great location as well close to town. Really enjoyed the farm walk and tour as well :)
