Combining warm hospitality and luxurious Mt Mee accommodation, Dayboro Cottages and Llama Walks was designed as a very special and unique retreat.
You will find the venue situated 3.5 km along Mt Mee Road north of the Dayboro township, approximately 45 minutes from the Brisbane CBD. Whether you are a couple looking for a tranquil romantic getaway, a lone traveller keen to make llama friends, or just need to escape the city and unwind, you will enjoy peace and quiet along with gorgeous views over the valley in the Hacienda Farm House, or one of the private, self-contained cottages set amongst bushland and mountains.
Dayboro Cottages and Llama Walks offers guests a 3 bedroom farmhouse and 5 cottages in total. Each cottage is beautifully appointed, privately located, and fully self-contained.
The 3 bedroom hill top farm house is ideal for larger groups, sleeping up to 6 adults with a roll-away bed available for 1 extra person. 1 porta-cot and 1 highchair can be provided upon request when booking your Dayboro accommodation.
The upstairs 3 bedroom bed and breakfast style home boasts polished floorboards, a wonderfully large kitchen, laundry facilities, separate toilet and a bathroom featuring a shower over the bath, vanity with ample cupboard space for all your toiletries and necessities, and a hairdryer. All linen and toiletries (such as shampoo/conditioner, toilet paper and soap) are provided.
You can easily self-cater in the fully-equipped kitchen containing a full-size fridge, an oven with a gas cooktop, second sink, crockery, cutlery, pots, pans, microwave, toaster, kettle and coffee machine. Tea and coffee, sugar, salt and pepper, as well as cooking oil are included.
The large verandah wraps around half of the farm house and comes complete with BBQ and an outdoor setting for your enjoyment.
A sprawling backyard lawn provides extra seating to sit back and bask in the spectacular views over the valley, perfect for enjoying time-out over your morning coffee, losing yourself in a good book, or relaxing with a sunset beverage.
Beautiful llamas reside on the property. They are curious, interesting and calming characters, bred for their temperament. Whilst staying here as a guest, you are sure to make many woolly friends!
Llamas are amongst the earliest of all domesticated animals, originating from the Americas. A member of the Camelid family, llamas are herd animals who thrive off contact with others of their species. They are commonly used as pack animals in mountainous areas. These intelligent and versatile animals come in a wide variety of colours and sizes, with each llama boasting their very own, distinctly unique personality!
A friendly companion, these wonderful animals react very positively to human interaction making them affectionate and spirited walking companions.
Llama Walks: As of July 2019, llama walks experiences are for accommodation visitors only - the general public may still visit and meet the llamas. From 9am to 11am Saturday and Sunday (weather permitting). The walk lasts for roughly an hour and is followed by pellet feeding time and a catered morning tea. Hiking shoes or walking shoes are recommended as well as a hat, sunscreen and water bottle. Each participant will lead a shared llama between two people along one of our walking tracks boasting spectacular views over the valley.
Don’t forget your camera to capture all the llama antics!
Cost: $50 for adults and $25 for children under 12.
Upon Booking: Shortly before the day of your walk the new owners will send you an email with booking confirmation and parking map attachments. The confirmation contains need to know information and the map shows where to park on the property and where to locate reception.
On the Day: Please arrive 5 minutes before the scheduled time. Parking is located at the front of the property, just behind the entrance sign.
Need to Know: The llama walk includes a couple of somewhat steep ascents and descents so a decent level of fitness is required.
Get up close and personal with the llamas by booking in for a 30 minute educational tour experience held in the llama paddock behind the cottages. You will learn all about these beautiful, cheeky animals before feeding them pellets from a bowl and tree leaves by-hand. Give them a good pat while you're at, they love the attention.
The cost is $12.50 per person.
