EXPERIENCE THE fun of a working farm, reconnect with nature and enjoy delicious fresh produce at these five farm stays on the Sunshine Coast.

Kurui Cabin

Kick up your feet in the heated plunge pool or by the private fire pit on the large outdoor deck and witness a rainforest restoration right in front of your eyes.

Kurui Cabin is located on one of the first sites earmarked for regeneration in the Noosa Hinterland town of Cooroy as part of the Sunshine Coast Sustainability Program, with planting set to take place next month.

Rates start from $550 per night for two guests with a two-night minimum stay.

Sixty6 Acres

Hinterland farm stay Sixty6 Acres has recently added a new three-bedroom villa to its fold – The Acreage.

Guests will benefit from exclusive use of the outdoor bathhouse, complete with an original clawfoot bathtub, copper rainwater shower, uninterrupted views of the farm and its lake.

The luxurious self-contained quarters feature wood fireplaces, freestanding baths and fully equipped kitchens. Outside, guests can enjoy the farm’s putting green or borrow a kayak for a paddle on the lake.

Prices for The Acreage start from $450 per night with a two-night minimum stay.

Mayan Luxe Villas

Perched on 40 hectares in the Noosa hinterland, Mayan Farm is the perfect setting for those seeking some quiet time surrounded by rolling hills, grazing livestock and lush gardens.

Built from sustainable rammed earth, Mayan Luxe Villas is offered as entire, exclusive use property, with three luxury villas each featuring a king-size bed and ensuite.

Bookings include exclusive use of the plunge pool, pizza oven, fire pit and outdoor bathtub boasting wide-reaching views of the surrounding hinterland.

As a fully-fledged working farm and with an owner that doubles as an in-house chef, farm to table dining doesn’t get any fresher than this. Mayan’s owner, Jodie Williams, dishes up DIY pizzas for guests to cook in the terrace’s wood fired oven.

The cosy hammocks also provide the perfect vantage point to settle in to with a glass of wine in hand.

Prices for exclusive use of Mayan Luxe Villas start from $950 per night for up to four guests with a two-night minimum stay.

Seven Peaks Farm Stay

Popular Glass House Mountains accommodation Seven Peaks Farm Stay is set to add a new family cabin to its existing six luxury cabins this year.

Set amid 12 hectares of bushland with views of the Glass House Mountains, Seven Peaks is perfect for soaking up the simplicity of country living. Choose between getting well-acquainted with the friendly farm animals or finding a picturesque spot for a secluded family picnic.

Rates for a King Cabin start from $395 per night for two guests with a two-night minimum stay.

The Falls Farm

As the oldest house in Mapleton, there’s no better spot to sit back and soak up the scenery than the open-air balcony at Smith House at The Falls Farm.

Sitting on the highest ridge, this enchanting farm stay overlooks the Obi Obi Valley – a rich tapestry of colours bearing vibrant wildflowers, towering hoop pines and flooded gum.

You’ll want to admire the produce bounty at The Falls Farm itself, which is the key source of ingredients for nearby Mapleton Public House just down the road. Be sure to dine at the iconic Queensland pub for an authentic paddock to plate experience.

Rates start from $420 per night for two guests with a two-night minimum stay.
