About Us

Australian Farm Tourism has been providing Agricultural tours and Farm Host programs since 1978. Our head office is now located in Cairns, with a team of friendly bilingual staff skilled in providing tailor-made programs throughout Australia. Guests come from over 26 countries and range from farmers, government delegates to student groups looking for an unforgettable experience. Choose from a range of Agricultural programs that include behind the scenes visits to commercial working farms, an overnight stay with a farm family or a work experience program as part of their school curriculum.

All host farms are carefully selected, assessed and have undergone training. Students are provided with a comprehensive orientation on arrival and we offer 24hr bilingual support.

The Cairns head office manages all enquiries but there are farm host and technical visit locations Australia wide.  Our most popular programs are located in the Tablelands of North Queensland, Toowoomba/Darling Downs Regions, Tweed Valley, The Hawkesbury, Bathurst and Victoria. See our Locations page for what’s available in each region.
