If you’ve had your fill of Western Australia’s beaches and cityscapes, it could be that you’re looking for something a little different for your next holiday. A refreshing holiday option growing in popularity among city dwellers is a trip to one of the state’s idyllic rural farm stays. Slow down and get back to the simple life amid the natural splendour, space and wildlife of these farm-based accommodations just a few hours from Perth and regional centres.
Spend a night by a glistening lake in the Karri Valley while kookaburras laugh in the gum trees overhead, or greet curious farm animals as you bounce over rolling hills on a hayride. You can catch your own dinner of rainbow trout, or feast on local produce deliciously prepared with a side of country hospitality. Your hands dirty and spirits soaring, you’ll sleep soundly with nothing but the rural breeze to filter your dreams.
