f you’re looking for some traditional bush camping, adventure seeking, or a caravanners retreat, there are not too many
places that can offer all the above in one location.
From backpacker bunkers, rustic self-contained cabins, bush tent and camper sites, and loads of fun and free farm activities, Bestbrook Farmstay and Mountain Resort caters for everyone.
Owner Ray Vincent said one of the most unique things about the resort was actually the horses. “We are one of the last working farms that has horses,” he said. “When I was growing up there was a riding school on every corner, but now they are very rare.”
Horses feature in the jam-packed daily program at the farm, including pony rides and lessons for the kids, and one to two-hour trail rides for the older riders. Two of Ray’s daughters compete in polo events and can often be seen practising with their horses out in the paddocks.
