Brrrrrr in winter but the homestead had a fireplace fire everyday. Management are nice and friendly. Coffee is good. Grounds are good. Camping and caravanning areas are a plenty. Gnome cave was worth the 1k walk. The truck that takes the kids around was fun. Whip cracking classes. Cow milking info sessions. Relocatable toilets are gross tho and that's the... More

Even though we only spent a night there, we had a great time there. There are loads to do - feeding the cows / sheep / chickens, riding horse, milking the cow, collecting freshly laid eggs, cracking whips, throwing boomerangs etc. We also made billy tea and aussie damper. Our cabin was very clean and spacious. The kitchen is well... More

Elise was very accommodating from the time I made the booking to the time we left Bestbrook. We stayed in the bunk houses for 11 days. The rooms were clean and tidy along with the communal shower/toilet blocks. It didn't matter what time day or night there was always hot water. The staff were all friendly, helpful, changed bedding and... More

We love Bestbrooke, when ever traveling to Australia we love to spend some time at the farm stay. The team at Bestbrook take care of the kids as if they are their own. The children love the farm experience every time.

We're so pleased your first camping trip was with us and that your kids enjoyed themselves. We are aware that the campground toilets are not ideal and are working closely with the local Council and the Department of Environment to come to a suitable development plan - the wheels turn slowly, unfortunately.

No room for boredom here. The kids were busy all day every day. From the planned activities which they looked forward to each day, to just throwing rocks in the creek. A great spot all in all.
