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.

This was a great place to visit for both young and the older age group. Loved the displays that were happening throughout the day.

Arriving at the farm, I expected to just see some animals. However, I did not realise that there was a farmers market, a monthly event! I bought many things there, saw many farm animals and saw a blacksmith in action! Definitely would visit again!

We went as it had been included as part of our Penguins and Koala visits...Was nice to get out but was a little underwhelming as an attraction in its own right. Glad we went but wouldn't rush back.

The Churchill Island Heritage Farm is one of the oldest functioning farms in Victoria. The homestead dates from the 19th century, in Australian tems it is very old. You can also see some wildlife. To get to Churchill Island, you must cross the bridge from Phillip Island. There is also a m Marine Park close by.

What a fascinating insight ínto the lifestyle and challenges that some of Australia's early pioneers faced in farming is these isolated locations. It makes you appreciate the soft lifestyle we live nowadays compared to the way they lived and worked,

The cottages and homestead and very well preserved and provide a clear vision of life in early Australia.

The range of animals and displays of shearing were interesting and the demonstrators informative.

Entry fees were reasonable and it was good to know that you were contributing to the preservation of this unique island retreat.

This farm enables visitors to experience elements of a time gone by. We saw whip cracking, sheep shearing, sheep dog working and were able to see inside buildings used in farming in the area in past times.

Churchill Island is a working farm, much like it was in days gone by. The island had Victoria's first European vegetable garden. The historic buildings make for an interesting contrast wiwth the comforts that we have today. The homestead dates from 1872. There's also a heritage cafe. Don't expect to spend all day on Churchill Island, it's rather small; it fits in well with visits to other sights on nearby Phillip Island.

We spent a lovely time walking around the working farm and historical buildings beautifully maintained complete with historical information and delightful staff. Finishing with coffee and cake overlooking the inlet.

Went in the morning when there are no activities scheduled so not much to see and do for more than an hour. Animals in their pens. Heritage house. Lovely gardens with a cafe on site. Service slow and it was quiet. Went there on a four ticket pass to island activities.
