For a one-of-a-kind feel-good encounter, camel cuddles might just be the answer. That’s right – we're talking about camels cuddling you!
“What makes us unique is we’re the only certified organic camel dairy in the world. The camels are part of the family – they all have names and unique personalities. We know what they like and who they are. They’re often misunderstood but if you treat them with love and kindness, you’ll receive it back.”
- Lauren Brisbane, Owner of QCamel
QCamel - the world's only organic camel dairy
A friendly interaction like no other
QCamel is the world’s only certified organic camel dairy producing and manufacturing high quality milk, feta and skincare products but the real highlight is its ‘Camel Cuddle’ experience which takes place every Saturday. When the farm gates open, QCamel’s furry family welcome visitors and put their quirky personalities on show.
Enjoy a snuggle while taking in the sweeping views to the western horizon over the nearby Glass House Mountains, which provide the ultimate backdrop to this heart-warming meeting.
Taste next level organic camel milk and feta
While a highlight of the QCamel farm experience might be their camel cuddles, the fun doesn’t stop there. After a cuddle, enjoy morning tea while gleaning insights into the farm’s dairy operations and sample the variety of camel milk products on offer.
Once you get over the hump of tasting camel milk, you’ll never look back. Camel milk’s tasting notes are evenly balanced with a slight saltiness and a refreshing, sweet aftertaste. Not only is it a fabulous alternative if you’ve got dairy intolerances, it’s also super nutritious and is beloved for its gut-healing properties – a win-win.
QCamel also produce their very own silky smooth, camel milk feta that takes supermarket Persian-style feta cheese to the next level.
A natural approach to wellness
The QCamel story began with a fundamentally different approach to animal farming. Understanding both the physical and emotional needs of their herd allows owners Yasmin and Lauren to produce the world’s only certified organic camel milk. Like much of Queensland’s Sunshine Pantry, the dairy's operations are deeply rooted in organics and sustainability, following a circular economy model with QCamel committed to giving back to the land that sustains them.

As innovators in organic farming and food, their story also continues with innovation in skin health. QCamel’s skincare range represents years of research into the therapeutic benefits of camel milk, both in the body and on the skin. Their products are a fusion of ancient cultures, native ingredients and an ethical approach to skin health and wellness.
Yasmin and Lauren love sharing their knowledge with visitors and are passionate about making sure each visitor walks away with both a deeper understanding of their four-legged family, and visitors are guaranteed to leave feeling better after a cuddle.
