If you have special requirements, please call us to discuss your needs.

The house is surrounded by 55 acres, you can go bush walking or simply relax on the verandah overlooking the property. The 15 metre swimming pool is very inviting.

We are ideally situated close to the local wineries and numerous art and craft galleries of the Tamborine/Canungra area. You may like to just stroll around the Canungra township, or go for a day trip to O'Reillys and do the tree walk.

Owners of the property live on-site.

There's plenty to do around the Canungra Valley and the Gold Coast is only 40 minutes away

Horse riding can be booked for you with Thunderbird Park or Gumnuts horse riding complexes - both are only 10 minutes from our property.

If you are an early starter, you can go to the track with Steve and watch the horses go through their paces - but you need to be up at 4 a.m.

Magpie Creek Farmstay is the home of up and coming race horses, as well as young foals that are learning the game. Trained by property owner Steve Field, these horses are learning to go the distance

Guests are also welcome to come and feed the horses early in the morning and again at about 4p.m. in the afternoon, the kids love doing this, filling the feed buckets, learning about the horses and throwing out the hay.

Feeding time at the farm

There are chickens to feed - eggs to collect and if you are really energetic, you are welcome to help feed the 26 horses in the morning and in the afternoon.

This can be lots of fun for the whole family.

While you are walking through the paddocks feeding the horses, you will see lots of ducks and birds who all come down to eat with the horses.

For those guests who just want to relax, you will enjoy sitting on the deck, reading a book, watching the kids swim in the pool.

And if you want a little exercise, a walk up the hill and back down again takes about 20 minutes and is great for getting back to nature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing environment My wife and I took our kids and some friends kids (6 kids in total). Steve was so accommodating for us all. Jenny was delightful. We would not hesitate to go back there (though the shower/bath took some getting use to!) Thanks to them both for providing one of the most relaxing holidays we have had in a while at a ridiculously affordable price. You guys are awesome .. hope to see you again soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This was a relaxing place in the country but not too far from tourist attractions. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The children enjoyed the animals and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.
