Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Out & About With Jade From Tourism Whitsundays 

In our ‘Out And About’ segment with Tourism Whitsundays, we showcase the team and share how connected they are with local tourism. 
In this feature Jade Richardson, from Tourism Whitsundays invites you along with her as she takes trips around our beautiful region and shares her experiences with you.
In Tourism Whitsundays Out and About segment this week, Jade enjoyed visiting Oh Deere Farm Stay in Calen.

This farm offers camping and experience-based activities focused on the Cane industry.

Visitors can learn about the industry in-depth, including sugar cane preparation, growth, and harvesting. But what makes Oh Deere Farm Stay remarkable is its owner, Karinda Anderson.

Her story of resilience and determination is truly inspiring and reminds us to chase our dreams, cherish every moment, and find strength in adversity.

The farm also boasts a John Deere Collective Museum, a cane maze, a love swing with a breathtaking view of the outback scenery, as well as an awesome little gift shop.

Overall, Oh Deere Farm Stay offers a unique and educational experience for all, where you can learn about the cane industry and be inspired by Karinda's story while appreciating life's precious moments.

Jade was thrilled to visit and highly recommends the experience to anyone looking for an experience that inspires and educates.
