Located off the dusty roads of a small farm county called Cudgen just 15 minutes south of the Queensland border, you’ll find a sweet vegetarian cafe, farm animals and rows of sunflowers at Farm & Co.

Farm & Co welcome visitors to roam their sunny sunflower fields, see how they grow all their produce, taste fresh macadamias, visit their animals, or stop off for a bite to eat at the restaurant.

6. Liverpool Plains

Crops of yellow sunflowers in Liverpool Plains.

Nestled in the Liverpool Plains are crops of spectacularly stunning sunflowers that love to put on a show! This isn't the Liverpool we know in Sydney, but around a 4.5-hour drive up the north coast. Did somebody say road trip?

There are two sowing times per year, which result in a vibrant display of these joyful blooms around Christmas time and then again in February/March.

You can see the sunflowers from the road and sometimes there are no fences so you can get up close and take great shots without entering the crop. There are also some agritourism businesses starting up in the area, that will plant sunflowers for everyone to enjoy.

However, please note that you can not enter the crop unless you have permission. These are private farms and sunflowers are the farmers' livelihood so you have to respect their property and not trespass or damage the harvest.
