Like much of the Australian tourism industry, Myella Farm Stay on the Southern Great Barrier Reef is a major drawcard for international visitors, offering multi-night farm stay experiences where guests can get up close to the nature, the animals and people who live on this unique outback property. Myella is a working cattle station and the Olive family have been farmers in this area for more than 100 years.
Lyn Olive, Myella owner and operator said, “We are a very ‘Australian’ experience – since we first invited international guests to stay in 1993, we have been popular with international tourists wishing to experience a traditional Australian Farm Experience.”
“However, like the rest of the tourism industry worldwide, we have had to adapt in 2020 to the travel restrictions. We miss our international visitors, but we have been embraced by Queensland looking to experience the quintessential outback experience, and are now welcoming travellers from across Australia. Our reservations have been very promising and feedback has been excellent.”
One of the more permanent guests to the property is four-week-old ‘Leroy’, a lamb who was rejected by its mother. Leroy has also joined a number of other rescue animals at Myella Farm Stay where orphaned kangaroos, horses and birds are welcomed with loving arms. The lovely story was showcased on 7News Central Queensland. You can catch the segment here:

Lyn, Carl and the Myella family cannot wait to welcome back their international guests, however, they are enjoying hosting so many Australians seeking to enjoy and visit their own backyard.
