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 so 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, and make your visit as enjoyable as possible.
Bestbrook is a fun, family farm holiday set in South East Qld, only 90 minutes from Brisbane and 2hrs from the Gold Coast.  Twice daily animal feeding and milking cows.

 

During your stay you can expect to be provided with a program with a range of activities like Billy tea and damper, were you might meet Cyril, a long time member of the Bestbrook family, recall snippets from the past and demonstrate how to make butter in his 100yr old butter churn.
Bruce, Laura, Elizabeth, Tiff, Rob and Bob will gain your confidence and teach you the art of horse riding as well as take you on a wagon ride and teach you how to crack a whip and if the wind is right throw a boomerang and have it come back.
