Animal Land Children's Farm was originally established in 1985 with a goal provide children with a wonderful place to learn about farm animals.

Meet all types of farm animals, from cows, sheep, goats, pigs, ducks, chooks, ponies, alpacas, donkeys, deer, turkeys, peacocks, cockatoos, rabbits, guinea pigs and more.

Animal Land Children's Farm has been specifically set up to give children that real hands on farming experience. Children can only learn so much in the classroom. 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. Ducks quacking, geese honking and roosters crowing. They are all there to greet you. Animal Land specialise in giving you a sensory experience - you get the opportunity to get up close and personal with some really cute farm animals.

Come and milk a cow in the dairy, have a hand led pony ride, take a tractor ride to feed animals or nurse the baby animals. You also get the chance to collect the eggs from the chooks, feed the ducks on the dam, go ponding and plant a tree. Have a go at growing some seedlings or try your luck at farm sports such as poopa scooping.
