A couple has offered their unit for a vacation getaway to give farmers affected by the drought a respite from their concerns.

Jen and her husband Tim Peut have invited struggling farmers to stay at their Sunshine Coast rental property for free.

Ms. Peut grew up in the New South Wales region and has experienced the consequences of the drought firsthand, reported Sunshine Coast Daily.

While Ms. Peut acknowledges that a vacation getaway to Mooloolaba will not solve her problems, she believes that a temporary distraction is a good thing.

"The current rental of the property is coming to an end and will be vacant until the new tenants move in, so we can not miss this wonderful opportunity for a farmer to pass by," Peut said.

The furnished family unit is pet friendly and designed to relax.

Ms. Peut said she is fortunate to be in a good financial state and did not want to miss the opportunity to help someone in need.

"I know some of these farmers have not had a break in five years, they heard about the suicide rate and it's heartbreaking," said Ms. Peut.

"The community is really coming together, we are feeling their pain."

Australia is currently experiencing one of the worst droughts of the last century. The whole of New South Wales and 57% of Queensland are currently in drought.

While Ms. Peut knows that it will not solve the problems of the suffering farmers, she hopes it will distract someone who is struggling
