Farm stays in Queensland

Ok city slickers, it’s time to disconnect from the screen and reconnect with a humble farm stay with genuine true-blue farm experiences. Get involved and milk the cows, collect the eggs and ride horses atop the rolling country side. The beauty is that you can keep your farm stay break as peaceful or as jam packed as you like!

Farm stay types and experiences

Whether you’re looking for a romantic escape surrounded by lush paddocks, open skies and friendly cows, or a family getaway to get your hands dirty during the morning farm routine, a Queensland farm stay is just the thing. Often run by families themselves, you’ll feel like you’re in a home away from home in no time with a nice cuppa and local produce served up daily.

Throughout south east Queensland and beyond, you’ll find loads of farms to experience. You’ll get the chance to meet and feed cows, horses, pigs, chickens and sheep (the classics) and be shown the ropes by the local pups at most of the farm stays on offer. However, you may find a few surprises from alpacas to peacocks to emus and kangaroos so get ready to extend your Old McDonald verses!

Ease into the farm stay experience in Maleny in the Sunshine Coast hinterland offering rainforest retreats with a side of dairy cows. Or, if you’re looking to truly immerse yourself in the Aussie country life, head west to Shandonvale Station, two hours away from Longreach, where there are over 4,000 animals, they need a helicopter to round them up!
