Cockatoo Downs Farmstay is one of those places that you will have a hard time leaving (you just have to look at all their reviews on their Facebook Page by all the families that have stayed there to see that!) and we are so excited that they are TAWKer Supporters. One of our TAWKing families stayed there and just had to tell us about what a great time they had. They said they thought Cockatoo Downs Farmstay might like to join the TAWKer Supporter Program AND we are happy to say... THEY DID!!
It's just one and a half kilometres off the Dukes Highway between Keith and Bordertown in South Australia and just 15 minutes drive to the local town of Keith.
The large camping area has big gum trees that give shelter to the camping site. One of the best things about being able to camp at farmstays in my opinion, are the wide open spaces, meaning you don't have to camp on top of each other.
There are also several designated camp fires scattered around the camping area and all the wood is provided and delivered daily. I don't know about yours, but our family could do this for hours!
Every morning Cockatoo Downs Farmstay put on a farm tour for all guests to join, the kids (and you) get chance to feed the animals! They have geese, emus, chooks, kangaroos, sheep, deer, water buffalo and cows. As well as a very special camel, called Camilla.
There's also a lake which is suitable for canoeing. Canoes, together with paddles and life jackets are provided for your use inclusive of accommodation rates. This farmstay knows what families want and they are take every opportunity they see, to ensure you all have a great time here.
They area also pet friendly although dogs do need to be kept on a leash.
As if there is not enough to do already, they also have; half a basketball court, volleyball net and archery! All, balls provided, together with archery equipment which requires a refundable deposit.
There's still more!! They have a 'hay bale' maze, a playground, which is in view of most camp sites and now a rock climbing wall together with huge slides (moved from Greenhills Adventure Park) which you can see on the little news video below (also from their Facebook Page) which will be up and running shortly - the kids are going to love that!!
Don't forget to grab your TAWK Membership Card and show them that you are TAWKers when you book in and then the kids will get to stay for 2 nights FREE. This is one to put on your 'must visit' list and support them supporting you. There is also the Cockatoo Downs Farmstay Facebook Page, so make sure you head over there to 'like' and follow and for more information go to their website.
