When asked about their reasons for selling the owners Annika and Ryan Anderson had this to say.
“We have been in the tourism industry since 1997, starting with a simple pioneer style family cabin to supplement income to the cattle business during an extended period of drought. Over the years we have continued to diversify and grow, adding accommodation and developing our facilities as demand increased. We are now a busy accommodation and function venue open all year round. Henderson Park Farm Retreat has always operated adjacent to our 4,500acre beef cattle enterprise and our off property Environmental Consulting business. We have a young family and are committed to a full life with our two little girls and expanding our cattle business and felt it was time. The retreat has developed in its own right and has been operated as a stand alone business and is now ready for the next passionate owner.”
