Overview

Animal Land was originally established on 15th October 1985. Our Goals are to provide children a wonderful place to learn about farm animals. Animal land has been specifically set up to give children that real hands on farming experience. Children can only learn so much in the class room. Here they get to scratch, feel, smell and hear all the experiences of life on a farm. From the moment you arrive, you will be treated with that friendly country welcome. We started opening only in the last term of the year with a couple of kinders and schools. Now we have over 7500 visitors per annum. These include schools, kinders, playgoups, social groups, birthday parties, Christmas break ups and open days to the general public. Over the years there has been a lot of changes and we have plans for more. Check out some of the old and new photos we have found in the photo gallery. If you have any old animal land photos you would like to share with us drop us an email and we will include them.

Love it. We love when adults have more fun than the kids. We get so many uncles, aunts, friends that have to borrow kids so they think they can come to the farm. We are considering adopting kids out for farm tours (lol). Great to...More

Thanks Victor, with early bird family passes you can save even more by pre booking up to 24 hrs ahead. By pre-booking it allows us to organise staff and help keep our costs down. We hope to see you visit again soon.
