Award winning environmentally friendly accommodation. Beautiful views, explorefor our innovative organic Farm, and take a refreshing swim in our 'natural swimming pool'.

PLEASE NOTE We only accept bookings for our twin-share canvas safari tent if you also book the twin-share cabin. We use the safari tent to provide additional space for guests with more than 2 persons in the group.

Unfortunately, with Airbnb I can't list different types of accommodation together.

The space

One of our guests described Hill Top Farm as a Garden of Eden.

You can explore how we have transformed the farm from degraded paddocks into a beautiful farm, growing food that virtually looks after itself! Watch the Chooks making compost right where it’s needed, and our cattle being moved daily, mimicking natural grazing patterns.

No crowds.

Just peace and quiet, tasty food, beautiful views and gorgeous sunsets...

Guest access

You have the living space to yourselves.

Guests have the twin-share cabin and twin-share safari tent to themselves. The cabin has cooking facilities. Hence we only take bookings for the safari tent when there are more than two guests in a party and therefore need the extra accommodation in the safari tent.

Guests are welcome to explore the farm and swim in our lagoon, as long as they respect our privacy around the farm house.

Interaction with guests

Like Cooktown in general, we are informal and love chatting with our Guests. We can provide expert local advice. We know where to buy delicious prawns straight from the trawler and lots of great walks. Just ask us and we’ll help you plan some great days out. Whether you enjoy bush walking, birdwatching, exploring with your 4WD or would like to know more about our farming techniques.

Other things to note

DOGS - Well behaved dogs welcome.

FARM TOUR - Learn about how you can grow food that virtually looks after itself! Our tours generally take 60 -90 minutes. We don’t charge per person. Each tour costs $90.

ORGANIC BREAKFAST PACKS We can provide organic breakfast packs with fresh bread and eggs collected from our Chooks that morning...

I am an Ecologist turned farmer, fascinated in how we can learn to mimic the functioning of natural ecosystems to produce healthy food with less hard yakka and cost. Hill Top Farm is my chance to develop these ideas and create a beautiful and restorative environment for residents…
