Our First Farm Stay in Tasmania Now Open

Australian Caravan Club (ACC) members travelling to and from Tasmania now have the advantage of staying at the Club’s first Farm Stay in Tasmania, ACC Chairman Craig Humphrey said today.

The ACC’s Farm Stay Scheme is an initiative that arose when a group of ACC members expressed an interest in making space available on their properties for fellow Club members to stay short term, free of charge.  Strict rules are in place for users of the Farm Stay Scheme based on the laws of the relevant authorities.

‘The ACC is delighted to welcome our very first Farm Stay in Tasmania,’ said Mr Humphrey.  ‘The Burrong Farm Stay is sited only 30 minutes from the Spirit of Tasmania dock.  I expect it will become a very highly sought after stopover for our members travelling to and from Tasmania.’

‘The ACC is very grateful to Burrong Farm Stay hosts and ACC members Andrew and Karen Porter for opening up their property to fellow ACC members.’

ACC members staying at the site will find it is close to Cradle Mountain and only 15 minutes from the beach and Sprent.  Mt Roland, Sheffield, Gunns Plains Caves and Leven Canyon are all less than an hour’s drive away.

Tasmanian-based ACC member Bernie Barnwell recently stayed at Burrong. ‘This campground is a beautiful place and Andrew and Karen are exceptional hosts,’ Mr Barnwell said. 

Well-behaved pets are welcome and ACC members are asked to please phone Andrew and Karen beforehand to check availability.  Water may be available, depending on the season.

Further details about the site and contact details for Burrong are available for ACC members on the ACC website under the On the Road / RVSTAY / Farm Stay tab.
