Freeman’s Organic Farm, Currumbin Valley
An easy 45-minute drive from the Gold Coast, escape the hustle and bustle of the coast and breathe in the fresh valley air at Freeman’s Organic Farm. We highly recommend taking the scenic route along Tomewin Mountain Road – it’s absolutely stunning. When you arrive, grab a coffee from the café and have a wander around the weekend market stalls. With fresh fruit in hand, settle down for a picnic at the Arthur Freeman lookout and be sure to take a snap of the incredible view!
