Do you not intend to drive? Quite hard to find farm stay if you don't drive.

Not intending to drive as I'm not an experienced driver... don't want to take the risk..

am still researching on whether there are any tour operators that do farmstays...not sure if any bros here know?

there is a 2day 1 night tour for GoR. u can check it out at extra green website or look at greyhound
they will have a stay, but defo not "farmstay"

if u like a farmstay, u can drive towards philip island and/or wilson prom, and there is quite a few farmstay options down that path, and its not a difficult drive, infact very easy.

another option is drive down to mornington peninsula, slightly more difficult drive as compare to PIsland. me n family did a drive before several years ago and the driver was full lic 2 years hardly drove in singapore and back then i cant drive jus a navigator (those days no have GPS all manual map charting)

It's still a nice place if you can self drive and avoid the battalions in peak hour.

if one have phobia of heights....its best not to drive. even as passengers, on a tour bus, the height n spiralling road of GoR, my family members did not do well, much less said as drivers. we had to turn back at the start of the drive due to panic attack.

Some of my family members have it too, although they were perfectly fine. This kind of things affect people differently, and I suppose you won't understand it unless you actually have it.
