tHE CHOOKHOUSE sTORY
Chookhouse is home to Jennie and Rob and their many pets and animal friends. The Chookhouse has vast views over the western Downs, with glorious sunsets and a blanket of stars that twinkle in the night sky. This really is a special little farm for all to enjoy.
Jennie and Rob have two giant but friendly maremma’s – Checkers and Boo Boo, they help look after a flock of hens, geese and ducks. Families visiting Chookhouse will also have the opportunity to meet the pigs, sheep and goats – they love visitors.
During the year, there are often baby animals to meet including kids, lambs, ducklings, goslings and the beautiful pea chicks! There is an abundance of natural wildlife including parrots, owls, the odd koala and wallabies.
A number of years ago, Jennie and Rob decided to expand their grazing animals and now have three alpacas, they are very friendly and enjoy taking visitors on a walk around the farm. Find out more here.
Jennie and Rob have lived on the Chookhouse for the past ten years; their warm hospitality, roaring bonfires and animals are sure to make this a memorable stay for all.
Life at Chookhouse is a daily adventure; collecting eggs at dawn, mucking out the pigs in the evening and tending to the burgeoning vegetable patch keeps Jennie and Rob busy. Meeting the animals is a highlight for visitors, young and old. Once your campsite is set up under the pepperina trees or in the olive tree paddock you are free to join Jennie and Rob as they tuck the animals into bed for the evening.

Jennie and Rob made us feel at home during our stay and our boys loved helping to feed the animals. It truly was a great farm experience, right down to the cock-a-doodle-doo in the morning. Thanks again Rob and Jennie.

Absolutely brilliant! Great social set up for trailers, vans or tents. Clean & tidy amenities block. The animals are fabulous, we really enjoyed the pats, cuddles & daily feeding (remember your gumboots). The hosts are second to none, both going way out of their way to welcome & accommodate everyone

An amazing farm stay with Rob & Jennie who made us feel at home! The amount of different animals and bird life for the kids to interact with was incredible. Collecting eggs, baby cuddles and feed time was definitely a highlight for us all. Very clean amenities and hot showers. We will be back again!
