Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Not only sheep sheering show, it was so nice to see how the dogs do their herding work. I think it is fun and also educative, great to bring kids here to learn some new things.

A waste of time and money. Glad I purchased my tickets on a deal so didn’t waste as much as I could have.
Literally a dozen different types of animals in paddocks or pens that you could barely interact with. Service and food offerings in their restaurant/cafe were well below average as well. Couldn’t even get anything suitable for the kids to eat. Hello... it’s a farm why else would you be there??? For kids - so why wouldn’t you cater for them as well. Whilst the scone in the $7.50 Devonshire tea was ok the jam and cream which wouldn’t even be a tsp worth was barely enough to cover both halves of the scone. Would never go back there nor recommend it to anyone!! We were there for well less than an hour including our time sitting in the cafe.

I am sorry you did not enjoy your visit to our farm. Not sure why your kids could not choose something to eat from either our café or restaurant menu? We would have been more than happy to offer your more jam and cream for your scone if you asked.

We’re from the U.K. and took our 3 grandchildren who live fairly close by but haven’t been before . We went late morning mid week (10:30am) & it was lovely and quiet . Decided to pay extra for the tour ($90for 3 adults no charge for kids 3 & under) which was good as got to ride in a trailer which the kids liked. They could feed calves, have a go at milking a cow, watched a sheep being sheared , quick demo of sheep dog doing its stuff then fed kangaroos and saw a koala bear and a wombat .

Nice clean place to spend a couple of hours , nice gift shop and cafe although on this visit we didn’t have time for refreshments . Didn’t see any play area though which was a shame. Best suited to primary aged children I would say .

This farm can be considered as a small zoo. Kangaroos running around, a peacock proud to show its beautiful feathers to the enthusiastic and admiring tourist and several species of large animals. It also offers a restaurant for the tired and hungry visitors.

Look, the place is beautifully maintained and it’s incredibly picturesque, but it’s pretty pricey and the food for the cost a bit basic, however the kids enjoyed it very much and we did enjoy feeding the animals and exploring at our own pace. If you’rea tourists from another country then I’d understand you wanting to do the more expensive farm tour which includes the billy tea thing and the dog and a few other things, but, being Aussie, save your money. Animals are in great nick but for one poor sheep whose fleece was blinding her/him and it was in with a goat and missed out on a lot of food. They do say the site manager’s name is on the board if you have concerns but no, it want, and when I broached the topic with the guy in the ticketing stay he didn’t really care which upset me a great deal. Lovely place but there is another one just down the road on the left and I’m sorry we didn’t get to visit it as well. Don’ty the food there and don’t pay for a farm tour if you are able to just walk around at your leisure. I believe the tour is only on twice a day anyway. I haven’t supplied a photo because they’re in the cloud but I’m sure there’s plenty on Google.

What an awful place. Animals plucked from the wild and confined in small enclosures to be gawked at by passing tourists. Emus so stressed they have worn rotted paths along the fence. Kuala on it's own with fake trees and plastic on its indigenous Eucalyptus so it can't climb out. Isolated exotic parrot. Should be a thing of the past!

An unplanned stop on the way to the airport and I couldn't have asked for a better lunch at that time. I had the Beef Roast and my husband had the Chicken. It was a typical Australian 1960s roast meat/chicken and three veg meal and it was thoroughly enjoyable. There was nothing fancy about the presentation but the beef was so tender one almost didn't need a knife and it was excellent value. It's a shame this establishment is owned by foreign interests; seems they are just taking money out of it rather than reinvesting in the property. The original homestead is a wonderful building and a significant part of Australian heritage in the area; there's so much that could be done to restore this building to it's former glory and acknowledge it's history. The toilets as an example are a disgrace; clean but so tired and dingy. The restaurant and cafe would be so much more inviting with a makeover. We didn't visit the animals or do any of the tours but I feel this business would benefit from some professional marketing expertise with money spent on refurbishment rather than running it into the ground and sending the profits overseas. The staff were mostly Australian; very friendly and helpful.

I am glad you enjoyed your roast lunch, we offer a good homestyle roast and many people return just for our beef. Our homestead was built in 1906 and hopefully money in this years maintenance budget will be spent restoring it back to its glory days.

The items listed in their brochure makes it seem as though they are both clutching at straws and teasing you with happy animals in locations that I saw nothing of.

David Attenborough became a running commentary through my head during our visit:

‘Here at Warrook Farm we have unhappy animals’

‘Here at Warrook Farm we charge $35 for two adults which funds their landcruisers instead of fit for purpose animal pens’

‘Here at Warrook Farm you can complete the visit on your own in under an hour.’

‘Here at Warrook Farm the country homestead is a picture right out of a Chinese restaurant - awful wine and cheap bread rolls to match’

Here at Warrook Farm... ok you get the point. The place is so far from a working farm it’s a joke. They need to work themselves into learning how to run one.
