We had a wonderful time staying at Hill Top Farmstay. A great "outback" adventure for our family. My wife and two young daughters (11 and 14) and I spent two excellent nights here. Wendy's farm is an incredible demonstration of permaculture - a sustainable and self-maintained farm based on natural ecosystems. We learned so much from her in our short visit there. If you are looking for a place to get away from everything, breathe some wonderful air and see the most amazing night sky - this is the place. A perfect base camp for Willie Gordon's Guurrbi tours and anything in the Cooktown area. Wildlife everywhere! A fully equipped camp kitchen with refrigerator, stovetop, and running water. Wonderful, outdoor solar showers and the occasional visit from some amazing tropical frogs. Wendy has really created an ecologically responsible and sustainable place in Far North Queensland. If you are looking for the Four Seasons - this isn't it. If you are looking to experience the outdoors, the land, and the living things of the Cape York Peninsula, book a few nights here. Everything living closely together as nature intended. Birds, amphibians, humans, horses, dogs, insects, and cows. Lots of fun! We will be back. Tell Wendy that Dave & Lydia sent you.
