Sunflowers Animal Farm is an interactive, hands-on farm animal display with over 350 (mainly) farm animals. They are all very friendly because people feed them all day! There are always baby animals for you to cuddle and also native animals like kangaroos and an emu. Have a conversation with Pommy the talking bird! Visitors can help give a bottle of milk to our orphan babies every day at 10am and 4pm.
Entry is $13.50 per person (aged 2 and over), babies are free and buckets of animal food (carrots, lettuce, bread and grain) are $3 each. We are open every day (except Christmas Day) from 9am to 5pm.
Guests staying overnight at Sunflowers Farmstay receive unlimited free entry to the Animal Farm, a free bucket of animal food for each child every morning and every afternoon, daily pony rides for kids 6 and under, free DVDs and tractor rides for the whole family every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and some Sundays.
We all (5 adults and 4 children) had a wonderful time staying in North Unit. Feeding the animals and the tractor ride were a highlight. Was a wonderful place to be based while we explored Margaret River and surrounds. Loved the friendly atmosphere and Chili the Border Collie :)
We stay in the East Lodgings, having stayed during winter and summer here. The units are well maintained, and feel homely. Our unit has always been well stocked with basic necessities, and plenty of beds and bedding. The access to the farm itself is great, being able to wander around, go home for lunch then go back out. Like many others have said, we will return again (as we are already repeat customers)
We took our two little girls for the school holidays and stayed in the west unit which was looking out to the fantastic playground . Each morning the girls got a pony ride which they thought was a real treat . We also had a few tractor rides, collected eggs and saw a baby goats a few hours old . The best part as a parent was watching each day our 4 and 5 year olds get more comfortable feeding the animals and patting them . Day one they were so shy and scared . By day three they would let animals feed straight from their hands and give them a head scratch . Book now , it’s worth the price you pay for such a rememberable experience .
Very reasonable pricing, big buckets of food to give to animals. Recommend enclosed shoes,this is a farm after all. Nice variety of animals,watch fingers with the emu and there is one very greedy goat who is a bit of a bully. Lovely activity for the kids, nice picnic and play area.
We stayed for a weekend for my daughters 3rd birthday. Staff were lovely, great location and our favourite was the fact that we could access the farm outside of opening hours. The kids loved that all the animals were fully focused on them. We will definitely return next time we are in Margaret River.
