Solothurn Farmstay Maleny Queensland

We had 3 nights near Maleny, Qld on a farm At Solothurn Rural Resort. What a great holiday for kids who were 5, 3 and 8 months when we stayed at this farm. It’s a good idea to go with a few families as all the kids enjoyed the company of the others and it helped give the parents some much needed R and R as well. The bungalows are well-equipped and roomy, with bunk beds for the kids and spectacular views for the adults to enjoy.

Every morning at 7.30 there is animal feeding and this takes a good hour as the animals are numerous – cows, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, emus, ducks, chickens and one morning even a carpet python (in a cage). At 10 am there is a tractor ride, which the kids loved. The rest of the day can be spent playing tennis, table tennis, riding bikes (bring your own), playing in the farm playground or even driving into Maleny (only about 10 minutes away) and enjoying lunch out or exploring the surrounds.  Gumboots are a necessity and plenty of warm clothes for the evenings, as it got surprisingly cold.  Also handy to have a husband good at making fires, as each bungalow comes with a log fireplace and wood, making for very cosy evenings if the fire is lit!
