Welcome to those who enjoy a place away from the bright city lights to stay with animals and children. We have enclosures for you to camp with your equine family in a safe clean environment with secure fences. We also have facilities for children to learn about farm animals. All our animals including horses, cattle, chooks, guineas and dogs can be approached and touched without harm to children. The geese are a little skittish about this. :) Our property is a stroll away from Aratula in the Scenic Rim. The hidden creek on our property is home to a host of native wildlife and fauna. An occasional koala can be seen high up in the trees. * We have a rural residential property with access to untamed native Australian bush which is close to everything special in the Scenic Rim of Queensland. * Our property is accessible from the Cunningham highway opposite the BP service Station. Preferable for 4 x 4 vehicles in the wet. During the dry season any vehicle can gain access. * The fences around each camp site allow for families to bring their equine family to roam close by their camp. * children will enjoy the benefits of camping and the close encounters with farm animals. The Camel Farm, Alpaca farms and dairies are all found in the Scenic Rim area and allow for visitors. * its a hop step and jump to Boonah and Moogerah Dam - 15mins * just down the road to cafes and country markets. * a scenic drive awaits you to the Gold Coast 2 hours drive East * Shopping and entertainment can be found in Brisbane 1 hour drive North * Its an ideal place for Gray nomads with the occasional option of caretaking rent free * with yards available for horses * Our property offers an Adventurous family get away Our campsites are on high open grassy country with shady spotted gums along the creek. Access to the campsites is a short distance off the Cunningham Highway gate entry. Preference is for 4WD vehicles and limited access by 2WD. Offroad RV length is limited to under 20ft. The type of vehicle and RV will dictate where your campsite would be located. Pets are welcome (dogs, cats, birds, reptiles) but must stay within the camp sites and be restrained by owners.

The farm is located right next to the Caningham highway and there is a BP station right opposite of the farm and there is a cafe in the BP. The owner Bruce and Di are very friendly and hospitable. Bruce is a very professional person who is a horse expert, horse riding is highly recommended.

Lovely camping weekend in Aratula
What a country paradise just off the Cunningham Highway. The hosts Di and Bruce were extremely friendly and accommodating and ensured that I had the best camping experience. Surrounded by beautiful horses and birds, this was a perfect setup for stress-relief weekend getaway. Ground is very flat and spacious, and there’s a huge BP servo within walking distance in case you forgot to bring anything. I totally recommend:)
