After visiting Australia several times in 1992/3 Hiroyasu Horibe finally emigrated from Tokyo, Japan in 1994 and established the Holiday Farm in Cowra. It is based on the Holiday Farms which are very popular in England and Europe. Blue Gum Farm is situated approximately 5km south of the town of Cowra on the Boorowa Rd over looking the Lachlan River.
