We want to create a hip camp farm trail map travelling North from Rare Dragon Fruit Agnes water to Cairns, Far North Queensland

We have noticed a lot of hip campers coming through looking for working farm stay camps. 

This was a girls trip with myself (Yana) and Monique my sister in-law. We will be adding more info as we travel as well as photos. 

This is also a great way to show your support for our primary produces and meet them face to face. 

This would be an easy trip to do starting from the Gold Coast, Brisbane or the Sunshine Coast. 

You could have your 1st stay with us at Rare Dragon Fruit Farm stay Agnes Water.
