Luxury farm stays have become popularised since Prince Harry spent some time holed up as a Jackeroo on the 16,000 hectare Tooloombilla station in Queensland. Despite the intensity of the unforgiving environment of Outback Australia, tourists are not required to rough it.

There are now a number of rural properties that offer luxury accommodation for their visitors, including air-conditioned Queenslander-style bungalows decorated with a modern interior, polished timber floors and equipped with spa baths, saunas, infinity pools and large, flat-screen televisions.

The prestigious appeal of farm stays does not end with the quality of the lodgings. In fact it is elevated by the ability to customise experiences on the land to include Aboriginal rock art tours, cattle mustering, tailor-made river cruises and scenic helicopter flights over deep pools and rock formations where visitors can choose to be dropped for delicious local seafood dining experiences and a night of glamping under the phenomenal starry-night sky.
