Farmstays are a rewarding cultural experience creating unforgettable memories and lasting friendships. Stay with a real Australian family, on the land , joining in daily tasks and special seasonal farm activities. Enjoy delicious home cooked meals, in the warm and friendly family atmosphere, typical of Aussie hospitality. Often you can collect the eggs to have them cooked for your breakfast, or vegetables to eat them fresh with your meal. There are so many experiences to enjoy on a farm, with memories of a lifetime. You cannot believe how many stars you can see in the Australian countryside at night. You won t forget seeing The Southern Cross and The Milky Way . At sunrise and sunset you can often see the wild kangaroos on farm properties feeding. Some farms even have tennis courts, swimming pools, table tennis tables, billiard tables and dams for yabbying or fishing. Have your farmstay arranged by us, with a farm family ready to meet and greet you, show you the local sights, provide quality hearty meals and share their country living experiences with you. Your farmstay will include breakfasts, lunches and dinners and various farm activities with the farm family. Farm activities are varied and differ in each region. Within 1 to 1.5 hours of Melbourne, Downunder Farmstays can provide you with a true farmstay experience.

The farm families are experienced hosts and enjoy sharing and educating their visitors, adults and children, about farming life.
