Different kind of hump day

LOOKING for something a little out of the ordinary these holidays? Why not take a trip to the QCamel Dairy where you can get up close and personal with these friendly animals?

Well known Glass House Mountains resident Ethel Burgess, who is a sprightly 85 years old, recently made some new furry friends at the dairy and was rather taken by how calm they were.

She was accompanied by Sharon Chapman who said it was incredible to see how the camels reacted to humans.

“The camels are very friendly and affectionate. They will come up and snuggle into your hand to be patted,” Sharon said.

“There’s even donkeys there who help keep away the wild dogs.”

Sharon said it was interesting to find out more about the business and how it operated.

“The friendly staff are so knowledgeable and were on hand to answer any questions we had,” she said.

“There’s also heaps of information about how healthy camel milk can be for your digestive system. It’s definitely a day out that people of all ages will enjoy.”

QCamel regularly welcomes visitors to QCamel Dairy to meet and greet their beautiful camel family for a truly unique farm gate experience.

You can learn how they produce the world’s only certified organic camel milk, as well as meeting and falling in love with their camel herd.

Camel Cuddles are held on the first and third Saturday of every month, with the next event on January 8 and then again on January 22.
