Yep, camel milk is a thing so if you’re after a foodie experience with a difference, head to the Sunshine Coast’s only camel farm.
Leaving from the Glass House Mountains Visitor’s Information Centre, you’ll travel through some of the most picturesque parts of the lush Sunshine Coast Hinterland to arrive at QCamel Farm in Bells Creek.
Get up close with Maxi, Gracey and all the other friendly camels while sipping on a glass of bubbly while surrounded by the stunning Glasshouse Mountains.
The 3,000 acre farm is encircled by the Glass House Mountains (cue awesome backdrop for that straight-to-instagram photo) and home to a herd of more than 60, very pampered camels. As you’ll discover from the farm’s resident expert, camel’s milk is truly worth bottling – often called ‘white gold’ – the milk is prized for its amazing health benefits and sought-after by food connoisseurs for its deliciously smooth, slightly salty taste.
Camel milk pannacotta with fresh pomegranate is one of the delicious canapes on the menu. FACT: camel milk contains 10 times more iron than cow milk, and 3 times more vitamin C!
Try it for yourself! Enjoy a glass of bubbly while indulging in scrumptious camel milk canapés including panna cotta with fresh pomegranate, tzatziki with zaatar bread and a mouth-watering camel-milk gelato for dessert. You’ll also have the chance to get up close to these magnificent dromedaries. Forget what you’ve heard about bad-mannered camels, Maxi, Gracey and friends are curious, affectionate and only too happy to pose for a photo or have a cuddle.
TIP: If you can’t make it to QCamel farm you can pick up some delicious Camel Curd from Maleny Cheese.
Delicious canapés served up with a side of Glass House Mountains views!
