Australian Farmstay Accommodation
Wake up and breath the fresh air, hear the birds chirping and smell freshly cut grass. Spend your day riding, swimming, feeding animals or just wandering the countryside; these are just some of the relaxing options that are available with Farmstay style accommodation.
Staying at a farmstay is a good way to leave behind your busy lifestyle and experience all the simple things we sometimes take for granted. There's absolutely nothing better than enjoying the great outdoors.
What is a Farmstay? Well, a farmstay is any type of accommodation that may or may not be on a working farm, but most often located within a rural countryside setting. Australian farmstays are often interactive, family-focused and relaxing.
Many offer guests the chance to feed animals, collect eggs and learn how a farm functions. They can also be a very peaceful retreat for adults and great way to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city. For the accommodation, guests normally pay rates similar to traditional bed & breakfasts, although prices do vary.
Australian Farmstay holidays are growing in popularity. One of the reasons for this is a growing number of farmstay accommodation options now available. This is in part due to farmers reliance on sourcing additional income together with a desire to offer something unique to visitors. Because so many people would like to experience the country lifestyle, give children a feel for the countryside or simply escape the hustle and bustle of daily life farmstay accommodation is a great option for the family or couple.
Australian farmstays offer something different. There is often horse riding and accommodation packages, scenic guided trails and accommodation which caters for groups, couples or individuals, both with or without country cooking.
Farmstays embody the Australian lifestyle. Australians are very proud of having a clean and beautiful land, this translates to the way a farmstay is run. Great care is taken to make guests comfortable whilst maintaining that "country feel". The great thing about Australian farmstays is the unique locations; many are located in unique places close to the ocean offering visitors the opportunity to enjoy "beach and Bush" activities such as horse riding.
