About Ryder Homestead & Blue Gum Cabin - Meet Your Hosts

Lyn - Ryder Homestead & Blue Gum Cabin

Having had a background in country living but ending up in Sydney at different ages both Lyn and Rob were looking forward to returning to that lifestyle when their family and work commitments allowed them.

Their own childhoods, their children’s childhoods and now their grand children’s childhoods center largely around outdoor experiences on farms and camping trips.

Rob - Ryder Homestead & Blue Gum Cabin


As a mother, grandmother and primary school teacher Lyn appreciates the importance of people of all ages experiencing the freedom to explore, discover and develop; to try new activities; to experience unstructured learning and playing times and to “be free”. On their property kids can be free to engage in activities they might not do in the city, such as yabbying, marshmallow-toasting and the craft shed.


"Our desire is that our guests at Ryder Homestead and Blue Gum Cabin center around family, friends or interest groups being together or sometimes not, engaging in activities that foster the above experiences." Lyn and Rob

Testimonials

We were blown in by the strong winds so made a fire and stayed cosy for our short stay. We’ve loved exploring and building fires, enjoyed the quietness and generally had a lovely time as a family – with no technology to distract us from us! Yay!

Peter, Sydney
