Lyndoch Lavender Farm

How can I get there?

The best way to get to Lyndoch Lavender Farm is via car. You can hire one for the day and drive from the city down North East Road (or Lower North East Road which turns onto North East Road).

Continue down until you turn off to S Para Road and keep driving until you hit a T section. Turn left down Queen Street which soon turns into Lyndoch Valley Road.

Soon you’ll turn right onto Hoffnungsthal Road and then left down the same road that leads you right down to the lavender farm.
