A popular farmstay tourist attraction in Tregony, Queensland has been offered for sale for the first time in 20 years.

The Bestbrook Mountain Resort is a favourite among families and school camps, offering visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in farm life among a magnificent mountainside setting.

The unique farmstay resort has been listed for sale as a freehold going concern, and is being campaigned for Expressions of Interest by property services agency Savills.

Experience farm life in unique accommodation

Set on 146 picturesque hectares in Queensland’s Southern Downs Region, the rural zoned Resort fronts the Cunningham Highway.

The Resort is nestled within the locality of Tregony, one of the major gateways to the popular farming region of Darling Downs, and is just a short 90 minute drive from Brisbane.

The family-run business offers a range of revenue streams, with its facilities including a conference area, several accommodation options, licensed restaurant open 7 days, bar, swimming pool, children’s playground and shop.

Visitors have the option of a full backpacker-style experience, with four bunkhouses on offer able to accommodate up to 62 people, an option most popular with school trips for the convenient layout.

For those seeking a more relaxed mountainside getaway, Bestbrook also contains three two-bedroom cabins and six three-bedrooms cabins, all fully self-contained.

The farmstay also offers four campsites with powered capabilities which stretch along the property’s gap creek, providing a fully immersed farm experience under the stars.

Bestbrook Mountain Resort currently operates as a working farm, with a range of activities on offer to provide an insight into life on the farm, and educate visitors about where our food comes from.

Visitors are invited to take part in an amazing array of activities including a twice daily animal feeding, horse riding, bush walking, billy tea and damper making, whip and boomerang lessons, and of course the camping essential of toasting marshmallows over the campfire.

Domestic tourism prospers throughout pandemic

Bestbrook Mountain Resort presents a unique opportunity for a tourism operator to purchase a fully established and profitable business.

The sale of the reputable asset will be overseen by Savills National Directors Tony Bargwanna and Leon Alaban, and Analyst for the Hotels Team Taylor Morris.

“Whilst there is potential to redevelop and reposition the asset, it would be perfect for another tourism operator to acquire and continue as a similar farm stay or even upgrade to a more boutique nature retreat-style of accommodation.”

Domestic travel has always been popular, with professional services firm KPMG recently reporting that 90% of all trips taken by Australians in the past decade have been domestic.

The pandemic however, has only strengthened domestic tourism further, creating new opportunities for local tourism operators.

“The outlook for domestic travel and tourism remains strong, particularly since the Covid-19 pandemic and most recently, relaxing of local borders and travel requirements unleashing crowds of people keen to travel our country again,” said Mr Bargwanna.

Expressions of Interest for Bestbrook Mountain Resort will close on 11 April, 2022.
