Softfoot Farm is a unique property offering escape from the hustle and bustle of the modern world to visitors of all ages.
Established by the Retallick Family in 1999, Softfoot is a privately owned family farm originally dedicated to the breeding of World Class Alpacas as well as a Sanctuary and Genetic Ark for endangered Australian Marsupials and a large forestry project aimed at reducing their carbon footprint. Located on 500 acres in the picturesque Hindmarsh Valley, South Australia, (near Victor Harbor)
Relax and enjoy tea or coffee or stay for lunch or dinner in the newly built restaurant The Swagman Chargrill. Soak in the breathtaking views over the valleyand take time out for yourself. See herds of wild kangaroos bounding accross the landscape and free ranging alpacas that sometimes come right up to the restaurant for a pat and a feed.
The Swagman Chargrill
The menu at the Swagman is a true Taste of Australia. With sumptuous regionally sourced meats and vegetables topped with the unique flavours of Australian native bush foods (some even grown on the property).
The wines have been attentively chosen from regions around South Australia. The coffee is locally roasted in the seaside town of Victor Harbor and our Beers are made locally as well. Experience our home baked damper, biscuits and cakes and our warm country hospitality.
This is truly a Swagman’s Dream…….
Onsite we also have a boutique offering one of a kind gift ideas including locally made alpaca fleece garments (from our own fibre grown on farm), toys and quilts and a unique museum exhibit of handmade Australian Studio pottery .
We hope to see you soon.
