Animal Land Children's Farm - the ultimate family experience.

Looking for the perfect day out for the whole family, then do not miss your chance to visit the acclaimed Animal Land Children's Farm.

Parents and children of all ages are guaranteed a fantastic day out with the chance to have an authentic farm experience, packed with fun, animals and traditional country style hospitality.

What makes Animal Land so popular with families is that unlike other animal attractions you do not simply get to observe the animals, you get to actively hold, pat, feed, ride, milk and truly experience what farm life is like.

From the moment you arrive the country life experience begins as you get to meet, greet and interact with all your favourite farmyard animals including cows, sheep, goats, pigs, ducks, chooks, ponies, alpacas, donkeys, deer, turkeys, peacocks, cockatoos, rabbits, guinea pigs and more.

You will enjoy none stop entertainment as you participate in all the farms fun filled activities including milking a cow in the dairy, having a hand led pony ride, taking a tractor ride, feeding the animals and nursing the baby animals too.

Collect the eggs from the chooks, feed the ducks on the dam, go ponding, plant a tree and have a go at growing some seedlings. Even try your luck at farm sports such as poopa scooping.

Established in 1985, Animal Land Children's Farm provides an unrivalled opportunity to experience real farm life.

Located just 30 minutes from the Melbourne CBD, this unrivalled day of family fun is in easy reach.

Animal Land is famous for the sensory experience it offers visitors of all ages and a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with some really cute farm animals.
