Just south of the Gold Coast and north of Byron Bay is the lush Tweed Valley. Think rolling green hills, sparkling rivers, fabulous farm stays and a feast of foodie delights.
It makes for a gorgeous road-trip, as Kim and her primary-school-bestie, Kimmy, discovered. They ditched the kids, for the freedom of the Jayco Conquest Motorhome from Brisbane Camperland, on a girls-trip to Hosanna Farmstay. The beauty of road-tripping in a motorhome is that the journey is half the fun.

Tweed Valley Road-Trip Itinerary
We suggested making your way inland from Kingscliff – from sand, to soil and sunflowers.
First stop – Farm & Co at Cudgen!
Here you can pick your own sunflowers (and they’re in bloom nearly all year!). Visitors can walk the grounds and visit the rescue chickens and pigs (Hank & Pepe).
Farm fresh produce is picked and served at the acclaimed restaurant. Farm & Co Restaurant is open for farm to plate dining Thursday – Sunday, with a range of experiences from weddings to long lunches, sunset dinners, picnics or Sunday brunch!
The organic produce is also showcased at the Farm Store – so you can pick up a platter or take the produce with you to your next destination.
The beauty of the Jayco Conquest is that it fits everything you need for a getaway (with a full-sized fridge and roomy kitchen!), yet it’s compact enough for easy touring.
When driving through the beautiful Tweed Valley, everywhere you look is a picture. The region was formed from the now extinct volcano of Wollumbin-Mount Warning (hence the fertile volcanic soil).
Follow the Tweed River as it snakes its way through charming towns and past attractions like Tropical Fruit World and Husk Distillery, at Tumbulgum. While Kim & Kimmy didn’t pop in, we suggest a visit to this paddock-to-bottle cane farm distillery for a tour or taste of their award winning rum, gin and famous Ink Gin.
Just around the riverbend is the delightful town of Murwillumbah – a bustling Valley hub worth an explore.
The Kims’ final destination was 10 minutes past Murwillumbah, at Stokers Landing.
Hosanna Farmstay is country camping at its best – offering plenty of large camping and van sites, huts and cabins for glampers, awesome farm experiences, onsite dining and acres of country charm!
It’s a perfect home away from home in the Jayco Conquest.
The Motorhome home is self-contained and off-grid friendly, there’s a roomy ensuite, a brilliant kitchen and an electric bed which is an awesome space-saver.
With virtually no set-up, there’s more time to explore.
Hosanna is a free-range farm in every sense.
Kids can roam free and enjoy some good old-fashioned fun. Get hands-on with farm animals at daily feeding sessions, milk a cow, swim or kayak on the dam or try the giant waterslide.
The coffee shop and BBQ Shack are favourites, as are the weekly BBQ nights with live music by the fire, under the stars and festoon lights.
Hosanna also offers Day-Visit passes, making it a perfect pit-stop on a road-trip.
If a road trip is calling you, then give the team at Brisbane Camperland a call – they’ve got a caravan or motorhome for all needs and budgets.
