The perfect family farm stay!
We had the best time at Jarradale. Josie was fantastic. The animals are loved and so friendly. My two boys 6 and 5 had the best experience. The farm was well maintained and amenities were spotless. It was beautiful to sit by the billabong and watch the platypus. There aren’t many rules, not anything that a respectful camper or good parent wouldn’t already do. Woolworths Marketplace just up the road. We hope to stop back in again on our travels. Thank you Josie & Lawrence!

Loved it, one of my favorite places now in FNQ! Josie gave me fresh veggies from the garden to throw into my dinner. Such a wild range of animals that aren’t pictured in the photos and they’re all a fun surprise. Platypi can be seen in the billabong at dawn or dusk if you’re quiet, since they’re shy :) Campsites are spacious. As a solo female traveler, I felt entirely safe and comfortable here. Amenities, kitchen, laundry - immaculately clean and close together. Booked 2 nights for unpowered site, stayed an extra night. Bank transfer possible since I was out of cash. Thank you for giving me a space to rest and reset!

Marian Farm Stay
Josie was the nicest host and very welcoming to her beautifully well kept farm and surrounds. Our 8 and 10 year old daughters loved walking around the farm. All the animals were very well cared for. Ideally located we cannot fault and will definitely recommend to friends family and social networks. Ww are glad we stayed for 2 nights instead of 1.
