Farm Stays are the most memorable stays of all and to be honest we haven’t stayed at enough of them. In its simplest form a farm stay means camping somewhere on a farming property and you may not even meet the owners. On the other hand you may be greeted with a warm cake straight from the oven like we were at Nambung Station near Cervantes on the WA coast. We’d barely gobbled down our cake when Brian the owner took us on a tour of the property which bordered the Pinnacles Desert. A couple of nights chatting around the fire under a starry sky with Brian and our fellow travellers and we didn’t want to leave.
At Indee Station, a 400,000 acre cattle station in the Pilbara, we the campers and the chopper pilot (it was mustering time) were guests of the owners in the homestead for happy hour. Think about it, what would you pay for such an experience? How about $12.50 per head (as per Wikicamps winter 2018). I guess our Prime Minister would say “How good is that?”
