Really great historical walks over a truly incredible island. We took the whole day and really made the most if it. Nice cafe on the premises too. Delightful farmers market and Highland cows roaming free!!!

Had a great time watching a Draught horse being trained. The Thai curry pie I had at the cafe was scrumptious. Just the right amount of ginger and chilli with a nice endorphin boost from the not too hot heat of the chilli to boot. Perfect!

This attraction was a part of the package we got so we visited. I feel that this would have been a good educational visit for those with interest in the history of Phillip Island. The ground of the park was nice and beautiful.

The scenery certainly is beautiful with the waters of Western Port forming a beautiful backdrop to the farm. I hope you managed time to see the daily farming activities as well as the restored homestead and cottages. Thanks again for your review. Kind... More

Brilliant day for toddlers to pre-teens. The kids had a go at milking a cow and riding a wagon, lots of displays to watch too. Well maintained historical houses and plenty to look at. We would definitely go back. Take a picnic as the restaurant is quite small and has limited space.

The history of the property was interesting. Lots of different animals to see. Old gardens and trees. Take a walk around the island is a must. And the cafe is worth a stop, lovey scones jam and cream

We visited this attraction with our children at 10am when it opens, only to discover that none of the activities start until 1.30pm - more than 3 hours after opening time. Without the activities there isn't enough to do for an hour so our children were left really disappointed and to be honest bored. When we gave feedback (on exit... More

We went there over Easter and whilst it was very busy the whole farm was amazing. There are wagon rides pulled by 2 draught horses, cow milking, sheep shearing, working dog demonstrations, plowing display, wood turning etc. We had a coffee in the gift shop. All kids should go and see how life on the farm really was back 150... More

From the time we drove over the small single lane wooden bridge to the island, we were impressed! The heritage farm with original buildings sit amongst well tended gardens, sprawling grounds and beautiful scenery. We enjoyed the homestead and the experience of life in the 1800s. There's also plenty of fun for the whole family, with sheep shearing, cow milking,... More
