Farmstays

Postby Chippy76 » Tue Feb 26, 2008 10:00 pm

Okay ... Technically its not camping, but I figured if anyone would know you guys would .... Has anyone been to, or can you recommend a farmstay in southern QLD or Northern NSW. Im thinking of taking the wife n kids for a weekend away to a farm stay ... Even tho we live in the country ... we dont have any animals (cept the dog) and I want the kids to experience "farm life" ... So any suggestions would be appreciated .... Cheers :D

Farmstays

Unfortunately I can’t help but I always thought it would be a bit of fun. Ever since I saw Billy Crystal (I think it was) in some movie about herding cattle across the US I thought now there’s an idea I would like to see how they harvest all the wheat and grain also. If you do find one and try it out let us know how it goes, it would be interesting to see if you enjoy it.

Maybe not so much a farm stay but The Deer Park at Borumba near Imbil is well worth a look.

Camping and they do tours of the deer farm.

Go to Queenslandholidays.com.au and look up Destinations. Go to SE Qld country and you'll find heaps of farmstays in the accommodation section.
It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt - then it's bloody hilarious!

Only one i`ve been to is at Bonalbo, Gorge Station Retreat,beautiful drive,nice scenery you can stay in the house or camp,big creek but also hot showers and kitchen up the hill if you want.I didn`t do the "farm thing" as my dogs was with me. I would go back just for the scenery.

I really don't think I'd be comfortable staying at a place called a dude ranch :shock:

You should try Lanikai which is down that neck of the woods PJ and it is pet friendly.
