Experiences

How involved you become on a farmstay is entirely up to you. Our farm hosts will encourage you to enjoy life on the farm and take part in a variety of fun and immersive experiences.

You will gain an understanding of what life is like in rural Australia and see firsthand how the farms utilise their sustainability practices.

A farmstay is also the perfect opportunity to escape the city crowds and relax as you breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the warm country hospitality.

All farms are different and what activities you participate in will vary from season to season. Below is a sample of some of the many experiences available.

SAMPLE ITINERARY

Day 1 AM/PM

Departing from the nearest capital city, enjoy the picturesque drive directly to your farmstay, or sit back and relax as the local train / bus network transports you to the farmstay region where you will be met by your host.

Following a lovely welcome lunch, breathe in the fresh country air and take in the rural surroundings before settling into your private room and exploring your host’s farm.

End the day getting to know your host family over a delicious home-style dinner. The more adventurous travellers can join their hosts in the kitchen, and try their hand at cooking some local Australian cuisine using fresh produce sourced directly from the farm.

Day 2 AM/PM

Wake up to the sounds of native birds and the Australian countryside before heading out to collect freshly-laid eggs or fresh vegetables from the garden, which your hosts cook up for breakfast. Spend the morning hand-feeding farm animals, playing with the family pets and picking fresh fruit and vegetables.

Practice your English as you chat to your friendly hosts over a gourmet lunch, before herding livestock and helping your hosts in the garden.

Take a leisurely walk in the natural outdoors before dinner, enjoying the peaceful pace of life. After another home-cooked meal, end the day with some stargazing by an open campfire or heading off on a wildlife-spotting expedition.

Day 3 AM

Wake up refreshed from the country air and your relaxing stay. Enjoy a farewell breakfast with your farm hosts, before taking a final walk through their gardens to say goodbye to the animals and continuing your Australian holiday.
