Downunder Farmstays: Cairns Region

2-3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 238

Take a break from diving coral reefs to get a taste for farm life in the north of Queensland. Slow down your busy tourist rhythms and adjust to the pace of the farm, milking cows, grooming horses, and gaining insight into the daily challenges and rewards of rural Australian life.

This 2 to 3-day farmstay takes you to a local farm in the north of Queensland outside Cairns.

After exploring the Great Barrier Reef on an Australian vacation, take a break from Cairns and the tourist sites by staying at a local farm near the city. Join a farm family in their daily tasks, rising with the sun to feed cattle and sheep and spending your mornings grooming horses and collecting fresh chicken eggs for breakfast. In the afternoon, head into the fields to plant some trees or try your hand with the bullwhip. Learn about the rhythms of farm life and get a taste for honest labour on the land. End your days on the farm with an incredible view of the night sky that’s only possible far away from the city lights.

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