Australian Farm Tourism

Leaders in Agricultural Tourism, since 1978. Now providing farmstay experiences nationwide – Farmstay; Farm Host; Group Farmstays; Technical Visits and Behind The Scenes Tours. We have an experience for everyone!

Australian Farm Tourism provides professional farm tourism products and services to international students, travellers, government delegates and international farmers. Products range from technical visits to farm host coordination on local working farms or group farmstay with commercial properties. The merge has enabled us to establish policies and procedures in line with national standards, develop a stronger presence in Asian markets and increase the available product and number of beds Australia-wide.

The Cairns head office manages all enquiries but there are farm host and technical visit locations Australia wide.  Our most common programs are located in the Tablelands of North Queensland, Toowoomba/Darling Downs Regions, Tweed Valley, The Hawkesbury, Bathurst and Victoria.

There are over 2000 beds available throughout Australia. A Farm Homestay package includes all meals and activities on the farm. Activities might include:

  • collecting eggs for breakfast
  • feeding the farm animals
  • cleaning a farm yard
  • weeding the garden or planting a tree
  • picking fruit and vegetables for lunch or dinner
  • bushwalking
  • making scones or cakes
  • grooming the horses or generally helping around the farm house.

There is also the opportunity to relax on the porch, enjoy devonshire tea with scones or biscuits and breathe in the country air. Guests may also be lucky enough to be invited to see the local sights near their farmer’s property. This might include lakes, waterfalls, bushwalking etc. In most cases, guests share a room with their friends or family. Single rooms can be arranged upon request but surcharges may apply.
