Not only are there the farm animals and all the workings of the cattle station, but also an abundance of native Australian wildlife in the surrounding bush.</p> <p>A totally unique experience to Contiki, the Homestead itself was purpose built for Contiki Tours in 2008 and is totally dedicated to our East Coast tours.</p> <p>While staying at the Homestead you have the opportunity to learn how to crack a whip, go on a hayride around the property and enjoy some hearty home cooked Aussie meals.</p> <p>During the evening there is usually some entertainment planned otherwise you can chill out and relax outback style under the stars.</p> <p>The Country Homestead is a one night stop on Contiki Tours traveling along the <a href="/contikipedia/articles/east-coas">East Coast</a> of Australia.</p>
