2. The Rustic Resort, QLD
The owners affectionately call their property "The Rustic Resort". This is a tribute to the rusty water tanks and dilapidated animal shelters that were left behind when we moved in. Our farm was part of a thriving rural property in the 1920's. It used to have large banana plantations, passionfruit trellises, a diary, a piggery, and chickens.
Dog-friendly and composting toilet available. 2WD access but 4WD access in wet weather or if towing a van.
There are plenty of good sites for camping trailers, small RVs and tents.View Property
