If you want to experience what life really is like on an authentic Queensland outback property, what better way than to try a Station Stay? These North Queensland farm stays provide much more than just a different style of accommodation, but a unique experience in itself. Some station stays offer you the possibility to join in on the everyday activities of a working sheep or cattle property. There is probably good fishing as well, you can take property tours, enjoy birdwatching and make new friends at any of the North Queensland farmstays.
BY DEFINITION, FARMSTAYS ARE GENERALLY NOT FOUND IN URBAN AREAS, SUCH AS CAIRNS CITY. FOR THIS REASON, WE HAVE INCLUDED ON THIS PAGE FARMSTAY STYLE ACCOMMODATION FROM ALL AROUND THE REGION OF FAR NORTH QUEENSLAND.

Closer to heaven than earth!
Alkoomie is an 18,000 hectare working cattle station just thirty minutes from historic Cooktown. The homestead is built on an escarpment 500 metres above sea level atop Mt Dickson and offers unimpeded breathtaking views.
Alkoomie provides the ultimate destination for those seeking quality quiet time, but with plenty of activities if desired. The retreat caters for the needs of retired couples, families, and honeymooners. It is ideal for small corporate groups for bonding, stress relief or perhaps that budget preparation session.
Accommodation is available in the two-story homestead for 8 - 12 people and the price include most activities. You can also camp without roughing it in furnished, self-contained, all-weather tents. The tents are elevated off the ground and most importantly, they are insect proof!
