Bestbrook Mountain Resort & Farm Stay
Camping in the Southern Downs
More than just a campground, Bestbrook Mountain Resort & Farm Stay has multiple accommodation options; including dorms, cabins, powered and unpowered camp sites. The family dog can even join you providing you keep them on a leash and within your control. There are no designated campsites but plenty of space, so you don’t even notice your neighbours. A big draw card for this camping spot is the fact that you can have a campfire almost wherever you like, with fire wood available for sale on site.
Bestbrook Mountain Resort offers families the genuine experience of staying on a farm. Enjoy time with all of the usual farm animals; like ducks, chickens, turkeys, peacocks, cows, sheep, and dogs. For an additional charge, you can even go horse riding. Your kids will love the wide open spaces (make sure to pack their bikes) and exploring the creeks and trails that surround the Bestbrook Mountain Resort.
