How strange, I just sat down to email you and there was a message
from you! Just thought you would like to know that last night when
was reading my Practical Parenting Magazine, you were mentioned! I
was reading an article about 50 ideas of what to do with a bored
Toddler, and number 30 something was the author recommending a visit to
Myella farmstay! Also Phil was on a flight the other day and
picked up an inflight mag. he was reading the Top 20 Destinations
see around the World, and yes, Myella farmstay was one of them!
That is so awesome, well done you!
We are heading to Baralaba onTues and will be there for 10 days, so
we will certainly see you, looking forward to it. See you soon.
We are now back in England - what a temperature difference!!
Thank you for a wonderful week (1st - 7th November) The memories will
stay with us forever. We have been telling everyone about you, and
suggesting they come and experience the good life.
When it was snowing here the other day, we watched the film of our trip,
and to see David trying to lassoo was so funny, ( I know what to get him
for Christmas now).
We are saving up for our next trip, which will include a return visit.
Thank you once again for such a fantastic time. You deserve to win
Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.
Sally & David.
P.S. If you are ever in England you are more than welcome to stay with
Kristy, Shane, Liam, Beth, Alan and Kath
We would like to say thank you for having us at your farm. Alex
really enjoyed the whip cracking even though he didn't like hitting
his foot! Krsity really enjoyed the lassoing and was really proud of
herself for being able to make the rope go around her body. Liam
really enjoyed relaxing in the hammocks but Beth thinks that he also
enjoyed going on the back of the 4WD. Shane really enjoyed the horse
We have all made a Photo Story about camp. When we have finished we
will burn them to DVD and send you a copy. We hope you like watching
our Photo Stories.
Hope you are all well out at the farm.

|Hi Everyone at
I never got a chance to see everyone before I left yesterday, but I just
wanted to email you all and thank you again for an amazing 3 days at
Myella. I had such a great time and am missing Floyd terribly
I have attached a couple pictures of me and Floyd, you could maybe pin
them up in his cage so he remembers me .. ha ha ha (only joking!!).
I hope you manage to sell my Lonely Planet to a passing guest and
add the money to the bird fund.
Thank you again for a most memorable experience which I will be
recommending everywhere I go. I really hope I may be back again
Thank you so much.

Hello Eather Family,
We had a great stay at your farm from Friday August 22nd. till Monday
the 25th of August. We went horsebackriding and Theo really enjoyed
himself on the motorbike gathering the horses with Ashley (from
Yeppoon). Also thanks to Tina and Doug, we had a great time with you at
Myella! Absolutely a place to come back to next time we visit Australia.
Thanks Olive for your great hospitality. Thanks to Trevor for the lesson
in horsebackriding and warning us! Trevor could not pronounce our names
so he called us 'Fish and Chips' and also thanks to Sharon who has a
great job at the farm but it's hard work!
See you next time.
All the best from
Fish & Chips (Gerda & Theo from the Netherlands).
This is Carina and Steffen. Unfortunately we weren't able to say goodbye
to you before we left on Monday.
I want to do that now :o)
We thank you for
everything, we really liked it at your farm and will spread the

PS: Could you please let me know what this yummi desert was called which
we had last Saturday? It was this cake with some sauce over it. Maybe
you could even send me the recipe? That would be really great! Thanks in
Sorry to hear about the
calve. Cilie cries a little but then we tell her that it's the way
nature is. She says she would have been pround having named a cow
which lived on her favorite farm of the world - and then of cause one
she helped rescure. We are still having a great time but miss Myella
so much. Saw whales yesterday and relax today. Will you please give
the best of thoughts to all from the 3 of us.
Take care out there
(This family helped
find an orphan new born calf which Young Cilie aged 8yrs named
"Skibers" and she helped to feed but
unfortunately it died after she left.)
I stayed at "Myella" in April 2002 and it seems like
listening to Shania Twain the other day and it took me back to a
wonderful week in my life and I remembered you!
The day was the 23rd of april and we were rounding up some
"loose" cattle. I was a poor rider and you put me on
"matey" and to head those "loose beasts" off I
headed them at the pass thru the tack shed and I will never forget your
laugh( I can hear it now).
I also recited a poem by my grand father called "I took my girl to
dances last night"
Listen I just hope you are well and all the best to your family it was a
great week I spent and I will never forget it!!
You signed my diary....have you made it into the movies yet?
P.S IS Matey still going
read about Stubby on your website. I stayed at Myella back in 2004 and i
think i may have a picture of him (attached)
Olive, Lyn and Peter,
quick thankyou to you and your staff for taking such good care of me
while staying at Myella. Hope all is well with you and you never know, I
might pop in again some day. Take care.
Hi Lyn, Peter, Olive and
all the staff
Just a quick message to
say thanks once again for such an enjoyable stay. We had such a good
time out on the farm and shall remember it for a very long time. I
hope we weren't too loud and outragious for you all !!!!.
No doubt if we know of
anyone looking for that type of holiday we will gladly be recommending
them to your palce.
Take care of yourselves

Hi Lyn - and all
Just returned to the Uk
after almost 5 weeks in Oz and although we saw and experienced many
things that Oz has to offer we all felt that our Myella farmstay was
way up there - a joint high point with our trip to the Reef - we
were really sorry to leave you even after just a short stay.
THANK YOU all - for such a great time - we will recommend you to all
and hope to get back there one day.
Keep up the good work
and enjoying your selves

We spent a great week with you at the end of July. Laurelle was very sad
about having to leave and so was I as a matter of fact. She still can't
stop talking about the animals and especially Bonnie and Clyde. When we
left the new calf had not yet been born, we are curious how that went
and what it's name is.
Thanks for the
wonderful time you gave us, we really enjoyed it and will be back one

|How are you
the Lyn at Myella farm? Well my friend Helena and I visited you back in
1996 and were just talking about you all and our stay at myella
which was so cool. We miss Australia, Olive' s cooking and Peter' s
beer. Hope you all are good.

Thank you so much for that fun holiday we really enjoyed it and

The food was amazing and so was my horse Quantas!
We shall definitely be coming again.

Wilson Family send a huge thank you to all that helped make the weekend
with you the best family holiday we have had.
drive home was the worst part.
We had a 7.5 hour drive home to Strathpine with two petrol stops on the
way. (so you can tell others)
dogs were very happy to see us home,
again for an enjoyable stay. (we are already planning the next
How are you all? Jason and I are getting married in July.
I have just finished the painting of the Myella sunset.

I never expected to hear from Baralaba again until my next stay in
Australia. But now the "spider invasion" in the hospital of
Baralaba have brought your town into the German news!! Have a look:
("Australian hospital closes down because of spider invasion")
I hope everyone of the Myella team is fine? I must admit I was terribly
afraid of the huge huntsman spider which we met in a very smart-looking
apartment in the Blue Mountains on Christmas 2006 until the housekeeper
told us it is absolutely not dangerous...
I stayed at Myella together with Anja in November 2006 when we travelled
around Australia for nearly 3 months. It was a great time - well, maybe
not for one of your small kitchen knives I used for the gardening, and
for poor Rebel trying to teach me horseriding... ;-) Yes, and we were
really proud of finding free Koalas in the trees later BEFORE we reached
You see, I fell in love with the continent and visited Sydney, Brisbane
and Melbourne again during a 2-weeks stay with a friend in August 2007.
I hope I can bring more time and visit you, Peter and Olive during my
next stay. Take care!
Regards from Frankfurt, Germany
I came to Myella on a scout camp June last year and I just want to say
thanks for making my time at Myella a fun and memorable time... i would
love to add some photos of my time with everyone, well thanks again for
a great time
a really good time at Myella and wanted to thank you for your company
and the good job you do!
I wish you all the very best for the future and your projects. If you
ever wanna come to Switzerland and need some information or a guide
(!), please don't hesitate to ask me :)
Take good care!
Ps, please thank Nicky as well. We didn't see her much but we all
appreciated what she cooked though!

Teacher found us...
Hi, Peter, Olive, Ken and Lyn. You probably don't remember me but
I was a teacher at the school from 1979 to 1981. I got to
thinking about Baralaba and if the accommodation had changed after all
these years and your website came up and I was just curious to see how
well you all were and if you have weathered the drought, so to speak.
I remember young Lyn, young Barb and young Ken quite well.
My very best regards,
I'll definitely keep in touch. Watch this space!

Hello Lyn, Peter and
It's Barb Harriman from
Canada just sending a friendly "hello", or in your lingo a
"g'day mates". I often tell people about my visit to your
farm (July 2005) and they enjoy the stories of the kangaroos, horses
and me learning to lasso. I don't need to look at my photographs as my
memories are as vivid as if I was still there and I love that. I enjoy
looking at your website and reading what's new with you.
Since being in Australia I
have had a fantastic trip to Alaska. It was snowing when we were
there in Sept!! My 2 sisters and I went together. The True North
has amazing natural beauty. I think my heart will always belong to the
"Land Downunder" and meeting you and your family and being
at your home has a lot to do with that. Thank you again for the
If you ever get a chance
to come to Canada, I'll be your tour guide.
Wishing you continued
success with your farmstay and happiness always.
owners of Myella Farm.
In December 1999 I visited Myella farm for five days with my boyfriend.
We both had a wonderful time. Your farm and our stay made a big
impression on me. I remember that I fell in love with one of your horses
- Roy. I decided that when I had finished studying in Denmark I would
come back to Australia and have more time to see and experience the
country. I am now seeking employment in this field.
I'm looking forward to hear from you
Best regards, Sidsel Windinge
Just a quick
question....Where did you get the name Myella?
Thanks in advance!!
My father made it
up....however we have met a girl called Myella who's family told
her it means little girl in Aboriginal. Also there is a
mussel in Equadore called Myella. My dad saw the word
morella on a sign post in NSW while driving one day and it
inspired him to call his new purchase of land Myella.
Thanks for the info...I
have two grand-daughters, one is Ella and one is Myla so I joined
there names for my purse business which is called Myella purses!
I was so surprised that I found your website. I live in Michigan
in the USA. My brother and his family spent 3 years in Sydney
for work and they loved every minute of it!!
Thanks again, Laurie

In july 2007 we stayed a
couple of nights with you and your family. My daughter Dorien is still
crazy about the small Kangaroos. Lovely picture I enclose.
Regards to the family and
trevor. we enjoyed it very much.
Frank de Reu
finally found the time to select some pictures I wanted to send you.
Andreas and I stayed at Myella for a few days beginning of December and
we enjoyed it very much. It was a definite highlight of our honeymoon
and much better than I had expected. Alf from Crossroads
recommended Myella and he told us a bit about the acivities you
offer but actually experiencing it made it special. We felt so much at
home that we would have stayed longer had we not booked other activities
already. Thank you so much for your kind hospitality and give our
regards also to Olive, Peter and Trevor. I hope you like the pictures.
We had a really great day! It was fantastic to see and feed the baby
Thank you very much and say hi to Mustard for me...:-)
