About Animal Land Children's Farm
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.

It was an awesome visit and an awesome stay at Animal Land that I recently did. The kids had farm walking around and soak in the atmosphere and breath in fresh air. Kids enjoy feeding the deers, sheep, ducks, milking the cow, riding a pony and a tractor, carrying a bunny etc. We also booked a place to stay over and it was a lovely quiet farm stay just beside the farm. One of the best experience ever for sure!

Some of the animals were in poor condition; One horse had significant (what looked to be) mange(?), ducks wandering around with patchy bald spots (mites?). Pig pen required significant maintenance as it looked like it hadn't had basic cleaning in some time, extremely smelly+++ which is not normal for a pig enclosure. Basic animal husbandry which would be expected on a hobby farm had not taken place (maybe because of covid?) not a representation of how a farm should be run, disappointed, and concerned for the animal welfare there. Surprised at the cost ($15pp) for such an average experience.

Thankyou, we had a fantastic day with our four year old. Our guide was Donna and she was great. Heaps of kid and animal interaction and she even learnt the kids names. Making sure all the kids got plenty of time riding the pony, holding the baby chicks and feeding the goats and sheep. Highly recommended, great day with all the animals and fantastic value.

My four kids had plenty to do with all the well planned activities in the farm, from feeding the ducks, catching the chicken, lots more feeding of the sheep, pigs; milking the cow, handling the little ducklings and chicks. The accommodation in the farm is clean and we collected our eggs from the farm for our scrambled eggs.
