Myella Farmstay - Baralaba

It looks like you want to travel to somewhere we don’t have a YHA hostel. We’ve partnered with properties around Australia to ensure we don’t stand in your way of exploring.

This property is not a full YHA hostel but YHA has negotiated a special rate for YHA members.

It does not accept YHA accommodation pack vouchers (ePacks and Dreamcatcher) and the services and facilities provided may vary from those of YHA hostels.

At Baralaba, Myella backpackers hostel you can experience the true outback way of life on this genuine cattle farm, just 125kms from Rockhampton. Ride horses and motorbikes to round-up the cattle, milk the cows and feed the hens, gather around the camp fire under the stars all at the one hostel. This friendly, family-run hostel offers all backpackers an experience of a lifetime.

All bed rates include basic farm activities such as cow milking and egg collecting, animal feeding, 4WD farm tour (45 minutes), lasso or whip cracking lesson (45 minutes).  Please note that there are shared bathroom facilities and meals are not included.

Or why not book a 2 Day / 1 Night Outback Farm Experience including transfers from Rockhampton, meals and farm activities.

  • I really enjoyed meeting Lyn and her family and hearing all about their history. Peter and Olive have many interesting stories to tell. There is a very personal and relaxed atmosphere on the farm and you are really made to feel at home. We went out for a two-hour ride, were driven around the farm in a 4WD and shown many interesting details. The animals and pets were lovely too. Full marks!

  • One of My favourite hostels so far. Very kindly people who own the place. You don't need to go to zoo to see kangaroo only go to myella. This is what australia is known for.
