A truely memorable stay! My boys still talk about the animal feeding, pony ride & tractor ride now! One of the best highlight of our Gold Coast/ Brisbane trip! Highly recommended for anyone looking for an authentic farm stay experience in a beautiful surrounding.

We stayed in the self contained cabin for 4 nights. The accomodation was lovely, very clean, plenty of cooking equipment in the kitchen and lovely views. The kids (aged 2 and 4) had a fantastic time feeding the animals and going on some pony rides and the tractor ride. The staff were all very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at Maroon Room for two nights and it was nice, clean and cozy. We like that the kitchen was located just outside of the room and out of reach of curious little hands as our two little ones (aged 2 & 3 years) are. The hosts were very friendly and helpful as well. It was a great experience... More

We had a fun time here for 2 nights. Bec was very helpful with our requests. Very scenic location with lots of animals and activities to keep the kids entertainment. We tired ourselves out in both nights. Two thumbs up!

My family had a great time. Doug has given my sons a love of horses and ponies, he was so patient with their incessant questions about all aspects of the Farm. A special thank you to Bec, your enthusiasm really made our stay enjoyable. Pam was so kind and always smiling.

The stay at Lillydale was amazing. My two kids, 6 and 3 yrs old enjoyed it thoroughly, especially the older one. Recommended to a few friends and those who have gone have had the same great experience. The staff and owners are amazing and made the stay even more pleasant. Hope to return again soon...
