An easy hour and a half drive from the Gold Coast, is a magnificent working farm overlooking Mt Barney. Our family enjoyed warm friendly country hospitalitly. At the front door our kids enjoyed the dozen plus farm animals to play with at their leisure. The days filled with tractor rides, pony/horse rides, animal feedings, milking cows, egg collecting out of the barn, boomerang throwing, whip cracking, sheep shearing and more. After a day of fresh clean farm air the kids slept soundly whilst we enjoyed a glass of local wine and produce around the fire. Thanks to Farmer Doug and Family for a true Aussie experience.
