Feels like a farm but still in the city

The kids loved this place. The kids and I actually got to participate and help milk a cow, amazing experience for those that don't have the opportunity to visit farm.

this is a magical block of land, nestled in a quiet pocket on the yarra river, basically in the heart of melbourne. the kids love seeing the farm animals and big vegetable garden. there is also a cafe to take a break at. well worth visiting with your kids.

The Children's Farm is contiguous to the Abbotsford Convent and is an absolute delight to visit. My grand kids were perhaps a little too old to get lost in the exuberance of the farm. However, we did share in the delighted squeals of younger children around us. While the farm stock was limited, the children seemed over joyed at being... More

Such a gorgeous place. Hard to believe it exists so close to the cbd. The kids enjoyed feeding the animals. While there isn't heaps of animals like other farms, there was enough to keep a 4 and 1 year old entertained. Will come again

Kids run around chasing chickens, get to hold a guinea pig, pat a horse. A farm in the city. Open cafe on the premises is fantastic. A treat!

Always feel like a kid there, good for a guinea pig cuddle. Cafe is good, but a bit expensive. Not too expensive to get in.

Visited on second Saturday of the month when they hold a farmers market as well. Definitely the way to go to grab some fresh produce as well as only $2 per adult rather than regular charge of $18 a family I think ( which is still cheap ) lovely cafe great food. A really nice way to spend a couple... More

Paid $18 for 2 adults and a child to visit the petting zoo. Couldn't pat anything and unable to get really close to any animals in the zoo. The best contact was with the donkey and sheep that were accessible without having to pay to get in. My suggestion for anyone visiting is to do this and enter through to... More

Good afternoon outing with our son and his grandparents. Good variety of animals to see, touch and smell. We took our 6 month old son he didn't get a lot out of it yet but I'm sure he'll get more and more out of the experience as he gets older. Grandparents enjoyed themselves and with the cafe there it was... More
