About Caravan Overnight Farmstays

Welcome to Caravan Overnight Farmstay, a Registered Australian Business, owned and operated by Rod & Deb Symes. Our base is in the beautiful town of Albany, Western Australia. Our journey began after we returned from an incredible trip around Australia in our own caravan. Fueled by our passion for travel and connecting with farmers, we decided to create a website in 2014 to bring together two groups – Travellers and Farmers.

Our main goal is to provide a safe and serene experience for travelers by offering them the option to stay inside a farmer’s gate, away from the noise of busy roads and hidden in the peacefulness of the countryside. On the other hand, we aim to make it hassle-free for farmers to host people in need of a place to stop overnight, giving them a sense of security and a chance to meet wonderful individuals from all walks of life.

Over time, our community of Members has grown significantly as word-of-mouth has helped us spread our vision. We are thrilled to witness the increasing support for our concept, as it not only benefits farmers but also enhances the tourism experience for travelers exploring Australia.

As we enjoy our retired life, we continue to travel and have had the pleasure of meeting many of our Farmer Members in person. Each one of them is unique, and we have formed meaningful friendships with these incredible individuals who open their gates to our community.

Join us in this heartwarming journey of bringing together farmers and travelers, creating a bond that enriches lives and fosters a sense of belonging. Your support will help us grow this wonderful initiative and make a positive impact on both farmers and the tourism industry. Let’s embark on unforgettable adventures together!
