Downunder Farmstay: Melbourne Region

Duration
2-3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 214

Head into rural Victoria and get a feel for the land with a farm stay outside Melbourne. Escape from the bustle of the city in order to spend some relaxing time in the country milking cows, planting trees, and learning about how to care for the land from generations of farmers.


This 2 to 3-day farmstay takes you to a local farm about an hour outside of Melbourne on Australia’s southern coast.

Take a break from the “World’s Most Livable City” to escape to the countryside of Victoria and experience Australian life on the land. Spend your days rising with the sun to feed cattle and sheep, spending your mornings grooming horses and collecting fresh chicken eggs for breakfast before heading into the fields in the afternoon to plant some trees or try your hand with the bullwhip. Learn about the local rhythms from farmers who draw upon generations of knowledge about the land and get a taste for down-to-earth honest labour. End your days with an incredible view of the night sky that you can only enjoy far away from the city lights.

This farmstay is perfect as an add-on to a longer Australian vacation involving a visit to Melbourne.
