Activities


At Bestbrook Mountain Resort make the most out of your Queensland farm stay holiday.
No matter how long your stay you’ll find that there is so much to see and do.
Enjoy the working life of the farm, relax around the pool or sit on the veranda after a long day with a cold beverage and take it all in.

At Bestbrook we have a wide range of activities to cater for all tastes to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. Bestbrook is a fun, farm experience holiday set in Southeast Qld, only 90 minutes from Brisbane and 2hrs from the Gold Coast.

During your stay you can expect to be provided with a program with a range of activities like Billy tea and damper, where you might hear some tales from the past and we will demonstrate how to make butter in our 100yr old butter churn, twice daily animal feeding and milking cows. Bruce and his team will teach you how to crack a whip and if the wind is right to throw a boomerang and have it come back.
