AMENITIES Uni-sex amenity block with hot water and flushing toilets for those booked in Pepperina. Top Paddock power, Top Paddock unpowered and Paddock Camp we have gas showers (preset temperature for the safety of children). It will not be a hot shower like you have at home, however you will get clean. There are also pit toilets in the camp areas. In each camp area we have 3 x rubbish bins.

So many animals here! You get to meet camels, cows, pigs, alpacas, Boer goats Dorper Sheep, a multitude of chickens, geese, peacocks and guinea fowl. Miss Piggy loves posing for the camera. Sit under the stars and toast your marshmallows by your fire pit. Safe place to leave your gear while out exploring the Darling Downs and surrounds.

Site 1 - Paddock Camp
Woof Woof!
Friendly farm animals and a polite host welcomed our arrival at Chookhouse Farmstay. The unpowered sites are fairly flat and level and well grassed. The amenities are basic as advertised so we didn't bring our full set up. Our family is used to basic camping however none of us felt comfortable using the shower so went without for the stay. When busy the sites would be quite squishy IMO, kinda going against the Hipcamp vibe we've experienced. There is a busy road very close to the sites that can get noisy and a rented house located next to the sites. There are large dogs in this house and they bark. A lot. Permanent vans are also on-site giving a 90's caravan park feel. The skies are vast, expanding views over the plains suit stargazing should you not be able to sleep. Minor ambient light to the west provided us with a nice Milky Way.

Lovely secluded location, and close to Toowoomba city. The shower facilities weren’t great, appeared to not have been cleaned in a while, we didn’t use it. The toilets are drop toilets, but no awful smell (in winter). We took our dog, however it must have unsettled the many dogs which were next door as they barked a lot while we were there. Rob was an incredibly hospitable host. The animals at the farm stay are so well looked after and our toddler loved the feeding experience, especially the guardian dog Boo Boo.

Many animals and good place for camping. The land is open Terrain and flat and lush lawn. The owners are very nice and we can feel free and comfortable. Many cute little things good for take photos. Very close to Toowoomba and convenient for shopping.
