Go rural with Australia’s most trusted Farm Stay travel guides

Travel smart with Camps 11, the “traveller’s bible”, letting you discover the best free and budget farm stays and station camping across Australia.  

Backed by over 30 years of research and with over 1.1 million guidebooks sold, Camps Australia Wide helps travellers experience life in the outback.

Farm and Station Stays generally provide a campground, bush camping or both. Facilities can be varied, but the advantages to living on a working farm or remote outback station far outweigh access to modern comforts.

Many of the Farm and Station Stays offer exceptional experiences, and while we usually focus on low cost and free campsites, we do include higher priced farm and station stays because of their unique locations or because they offer that something special. Glamping is also an option at some sites, plus the chance for a natural hot spa or farm tour!

Discover more than 400+ farm and station stays and over 5,500 free and budget sites across Australia with Camps 11, and get off the beaten track with your next adventure!

Charlotte Plains station stay, Cunnamulla, Queensland

GOLD WINNER: Charlotte Plains – a station stay at Cunnamulla, Queensland

Charlotte Plains is the stuff that bucket lists are made of!  We met the lovely Russell family – and the owner’s grandkids sold us firewood. No L plates needed out here! Congratulations to them all – this month they won gold for Best Grey Nomad Farm or Station Stay, Best Grey Nomad Tour silver award and bronze for Best Grey Nomad Attraction Award.
