What we do on the farm

There is over 100 activities you can do on the farm, such as cow milking, yabbie catching, fishing, horse riding (lead rein only), making damper, build toy boats, mud brick making etc. The children stay in roundhouses called yurts, a bit like a big cubby house. There yurts are based on a Mongolian tent design.

Today Mike is still a real pied piper and children still come to the farm for an experience they will never forget. But the yurtfarm has something for everyone, every year many international travellers come and experience the "Australian way of life" and Australians come to get away from the rat race. Primary School groups and cub scout groups also come to experience " Back to Basics" and learn new skills.

Kids Camps

Give your kids something better to do than watching tv.

Your children can enjoy the natural thrill of working for fun and a real life farm. They'll learn lots of practical, useful skills, as well as a sense of independence and achievement.

A holiday with a difference for family groups, school groups and Cubs.

An example of a camp program:

Day 1: Arrival at the yurtfarm, plenty of time to settle in

Day 2: In the morning the kids will make their own pancakes (milking the cow, collecting the eggs and grinding the wheat for the ingredients) go horse riding and feed the pigs and goats. In the afternoon they'll go to the Yurtvillage and do crafts, boat making and yabbie catching and fishing. Ghost walk and singsong in the evening.

Day 3: The kids will go for a bushwalk, to discover nature and learn bush skills. The camp ends with a boat race.
