How lucky were we to discover Babinda Rainforest Farmstay, tucked in beside a creek only a few kilometres out of Babinda.
Owners Michelle and Norm are extremely welcoming and guided us through the farm gates to the camping area. It was like driving into a Botanical Gardens onto mown green grass with interesting well established plants defining the camping area from the resident sheep, alpacas, ducks, geese and chickens.
I loved this sign on the ‘back’ gate that led to the little creek and swimming hole.
Although it wasn’t really big enough for a swim it certainly was big enough to cool down in.
Doesn’t it look idyllic? We booked for a night and stayed longer! This is becoming a habit, but when you find such beautiful places it’s hard to move on. Once again it was the lack of internet and phone coverage that made the decision for us although Michelle and Norm assured us they are working on improving that situation.
We had a campfire each night we were there and there appears to be plenty of timber to collect around the property but much of it was green and reluctant to do much more than smoulder and smoke so if you’re planning to visit take dry wood with you!
