Places to go camping

Finding places to go camping and popular farm stays is what this category is all about.


Brisbane is so lucky to have lots of different camping spots from country and rainforest to beach and islands. The more commercial the camping spots the more in advance you should consider booking a spot, especially during peak time like school holidays.

Farm Stays

For many Brisbane Kids, farm encounters are few and far between. Fortunately, a taste of rural life is within reach and only a short drive away from Brisbane, with farm stay accommodation options growing in number. The popularity of this type of experience means that you often need to book months in advance, but don’t let that put you off!

Farm stay accommodation can range from bringing your own camping gear or caravan style set-ups, to rustic cabins with modern conveniences. Depending on how much you want to ‘rough it’, farm stays can be as relaxing as you wish to make them. And there’s nothing better than a farm stay to give your family a taste of living and working on a farm!
