After you’ve completed your tasks you can relax, read a book in this picturesque setting, explore the 850 acres of our farm or observe our camel trainers and learn how to train camels, lead camel yourself or ride them as part of their training.
Your accommodation will be either a private room with a double bed or a shared room with two single beds in an American style barn. The bathrooms and kitchen will be shared with other volunteers.

Where are we?
Our Summer Land Camel Farm is only 45 minutes away from Brisbane and 60 minutes from the beautiful Gold Coast. Pick-up from Ipswich Train Station can be arranged.
We are always looking for Volunteers and Helpers. So, if you have what we are looking for and if you wish to learn more about Australian camels during your stay, send us a brief description of your skills along with your resume. You will also find us on FB and Instagram @summerlandcamels.
