Currently in the midst of a sophisticated transformation from historic country escape to contemporary luxury destination, Mona Farm is an alluring 50-hectare property in Braidwood NSW where nature, art and luxury intersect.

With a new focus on contemporary art and sculpture, the property holds 20 Australian and International sculptures across its grounds alongside one of the most significant contemporary art collections in regional NSW. Mona Farm’s overarching theme of discovery has guided the contemporary curation both throughout the interiors of the property and across three striking hectares of manicured gardens.

Artist’s within the Homestead collection include Marion Borgelt, Adam Cullen, Fiona Hall, Bill Henson, Isaac Julien, Janet Laurence, Guy Maestri and Anna Willi-Highfield, amongst others showcasing the incongruity of new against old.

The estate also houses the most significant single collection of Peter Lundberg sculptures on a single Australian property, notably the ‘Mona O’ and ‘Dancing Man’ which were commissioned specifically for the property and constructed on site. Other sculptors highlighted throughout the estate include, James Angus, Robert Barnstone, Steven King and James Rogers – to name a few.

Upon completion, the property will house six standalone buildings accommodating 44 guests, each with its own unique story to tell. Within the next year, the Homestead, Coach House, Stables, The Cottage, The Old Stables and The Shearers Quarters will all be transformed by renowned architect, Louise Nettleton, while retaining their charming facades. For the interiors, expect luxurious furnishing from Anibou, Space Furniture, Cosh Living, Curious Grace and MCM House bringing a combination of classic and contemporary to the historical farm house.

Currently, guests are able to book stays in the Homestead for $2500-2900 a night, Coach House for $1050-1200 and The Estate offering private access to the farm inclusive of accommodation. To book your stay click here.
