Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a disappointment!
The “waterpark” is tiny, the playground is hardly adventurous, and the $5 per person, including kids lasts a mammoth 15 minutes…
Next time we’ll go to The Farm in Byron. At least it’s free entry!

A lot of parking. Double parking spaces perfect with trailer. Small farm, had breakfast while looking at the lamas and cows. Paid 3$ per adult to see 2 donkeys, a few goats, 2 cows and 2 lamas. At least the money helps take care of the animals. Cute playground for kids. I wouldn't really recommend this place for people without kids. Not worth the stop unless you want to have breakfast in a relaxed environment.

Attended a large family function on a Saturday. Restaurant was understaffed for the patron numbers. Guests were waiting at reception on arrival for up to 10 minutes before being welcomed and allocated seating. Young staff were polite, doing their best, with a limited lunch menu on the day.

But the big disappointment was the Macado Salad with Calamari. Roast pumpkin was sitting on a bed of greens in a bowl with just one small thinly sliced piece of avocado. Given the farm grows and packs avocados as an income stream this was disappointing. Just 4 small calamari rings fried with panko batter topping it off. The calamari was tender and tasty just not enough for the $5 surcharge.

Those who ordered the roast of the day got a huge helping of pork and veggies that few could finish. Fantastic you like pork.

Summerland Farm , is great spot to visit .. specially with younger children - due to the children’s playground & petting farm

Both times I’ve visited Summerland Farm .. I’ve enjoyed having brunch at one of the two cafes located on the farm

Also check out the shops , with mostly local produce & products .. as well as the small plant nursery

We ( a friend group) had a good breakfast here last week. Very good value and fresh ingredients. There is an indoors and an outdoors section for eating, a lovely garden area, play area for children and various ‘farm shops’. Well worth a visit.

We had a marvellous meal at the restaurant. Food was very reasonably priced and the serves we're very generous. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The farm shop was stocked full of delicious gourmet food to buy and take home. The kids playground and animals looked like a lot of fun too.

Nice activity for the Scenic Rim visit. Interesting tour with some tasting. Didn’t know we didn’t know so much about camels. Restaurant is good too for cafe food with beautiful views.

Stopped in today while on holiday and we were so pleasantly surprised by this whole facility. Our lunch at the restaurant was beautiful, very affordable, fulfilling and the service was great. The farm and playground were both fun for the kids and very well kept. Make sure you read about “Our Story” before visiting as it makes this place even more special. Well done to all the staff - it is a terrific spot and we would highly recommend it to anyone.
