    The kids
    The Cafe was fairly priced, food was great. The tour with Emily was not only educational for all 5 of us but we all enjoyed it. I will recommend this to all I know. We were o group of 5 ranging from 6yrs too 52yrs. PWD were treated with respect and patience. She is still taking about patting and feeding on the camels. Thankyou

    camel ride fun but would like more experience options during holidays
    staff friendly, took daughters out for birthday on school holidays = was disappointed that there was no farm tour running on school holidays, nor were there samples of camel milk to try other than purchasing straight from the cafe. so don't need long there, but would have spent longer and probably more, if we'd been able to do some tasting or more kid (not just littlies, but older kids as well) activities. camel riding made easier for hubby with balance issues as there are a set of steps to climb up to get onto the already standing camels which is good. i know its a working dairy but if you want people to connect, you need to give them a bit more when they're there. i was also looking for ideas for school trip but don't think this would quite hit the mark. have bought some mince to try. wear sunscreen, and take coins for the camel feeding (luckily we had a few in the car to scrounge around).

    Terrific
    I found the tour to be most informative. Very cheerful host who knew about camels and how the whole industry works. We stayed for lunch and it was a most pleasant way to spend our time. The views of the scenic rim are spectacular.

    Fantastic experience
    We did the tasting tour and came away with a whole new respect for camels and the Summerland farm. The products that are produced on the farm are nothing short of top quality, we will be frequent shoppers at the farm for all of their products. Congratulations guys on what you’re doing there, and the camels love a good scratch and the odd hug. Awesome!

    Great educational and memorable trip for the family!
    We visited Summer Land Camels for the farm tour and tasting and thoroughly enjoyed it with our guide. She did a beautiful job walking us through the farm and explaining all areas and activities that take place, all with her baby in tow. So impressed!

    Great day out
    We took a group of Intellectually Disabled adults to Summer Land, and had a wonderful day out. We did the farm tour where we saw baby camels and the dairy. This included a tasting of camel milk, meat and cheese, which we really enjoyed. Next was the Cameleer Experience where we groomed and fed a camel. Lastly we did a camel ride which was heaps of fun. The cafe food was lovely, and there was heaps of shady trees to have lunch under.

    Camel Trail ride
    What great fun this camel trail ride was. The process of booking, travel and pre-ride admin on the day was simple and fast. My nephew and I were fortunate to be on the first camel and, once we got used to it, the ride was very comfortable. The cameleer was really interesting and the 45 minutes went in a flash. The surrounding countryside is beautiful so we also enjoyed the drive to and from Summerland Camels.

    Day out at Summer Land Camels
    The perfect way to spend a winters day feeding and cuddling camels in the sunshine. It’s easy to unwind and relax here at Summer Land … Camel Time is much more slower. My teenagers really enjoyed the camel ride and we were all entertained by the wonderful Emily and her mini sidekick Hannah on the farm and taste tour. We finished our day with a camelcino and some delicious food from the cafe and stocked up on camel milk and beauty products to take home. It was truly a fabulous day 💖

    Fabulous experience
    The beautiful views, wide open spaces and contented camels were a delight to witness. Patting the friendly camels while taking family photos was such fun. We fed the camels and laughed and chatted with other families that had come for the same adventure. The staff were very friendly and the tour guide was such a wealth of knowledge and had a wonderful sense of humour. We truly learned so much about camels and the daily activities of associated with running the farm. The food tasting was an excellent conclusion to the tour of the farm. The camel salami and the cheese was delicious and a favourite of ours. I stocked up on these products. Summer Land Camel Farm is educational and fun for all the family. Fantastic day out.

    Fun for the Family!
    We had a great time visiting Summerland Camels. We were able to feed and pet the camels. Enjoyed a nice picnic lunch with a great view of the farm. We also had the opportunity to ride the camels which was a fun experience for adults and children alike! Would definitely consider visiting again in the future.

Went to Summerland Camels on the weekend and did the Farm tour and taste. We had the amazing Emily as our guide, she provided us with a fun and engaging tour. Her enthusiasm was contagious and made the day one to remember.

We arrived for our planned 40 minute camel trail ride for my 7 year olds birthday. We arrived back in half the time and afterwards was told we had received a camel garden ride (15 minutes). It was disappointing for a birthday celebration. However the staff did apologise and offered a refund for the difference in cost but there was no offer to wait until the next trail ride to receive the experience we actually booked and paid for. Overall quite disappointing and still waiting for the refund 3 days later

Hi Stacy,Once again our apologies you did not experience our Camel Trail Ride on the day of your visit. Please know that this was an unfortunate yet simple and honest mistake on our behalf. Our Trail Rides are a relatively new experience to our calendar available at 9am and 11am on Friday's, Saturday's and Sunday's. As you were booked on the 11am Trail Ride we were unable to offer you another Trail Ride on the day of your visit so offered you farm credit or a refund as you know. At your request we have refunded you and as mentioned over the phone refunds can take between 7 and 14 business days to process through the banks, a timeframe which is outside of our control. We do hope that you and your children enjoyed our Camel Garden Ride and that your 7 year old had a very Happy Birthday.

Excellent farm, excellent people, excellent experience 🤗🤗
If you pay for the tour, they give you a taste of milk, the person in charge of the tour is excellent at her job, she explains very well and teaches every process that is carried out on the farm, she did not miss a single detail

My hubby and I took our three grandchildren out again to the Summer Lands Camel Farm. They have been asking for months to go there again. This was our 4th trip however this time I booked to do the hour tour with taste testing. They really enjoyed the day there and learnt so much. Always a pleasure going there as I have taken a couple of friend out there too, been 8 times so far, this was the 5th tour i have done! next visit I will get the kids to do the Camel Rides. We always get the Gelatos, tasted most of what's on the menu, after so many visits, something wrong if we hadn't and ALWAYS purchase the Feta Cheese. Best Feta by far! Congratulations to the owners and staff who are always friendly and very helpful and full of information. Highly Recommend Summer Lands Camel Farm.

We were looking for something different to do/visit as a family. I read about it on Google and decided to give it a try. We loved it ! The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The guide was funny and clearly passionate about what she does. The tour was very interesting and we learnt a few things!! We had a great time !
Ps: get ready for the flies as there many down there :)
