FARMSTAYS
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.
