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

Went to this farm recently on a market day, we had breakfast there which was very nice and the admission of $2 gets you into the organic markets which was fantastic and to the farm! The kids had such a great time with all the animals and it was fun for the adults also!

It is a beautiful environment and great for people of all ages. I really like the goats! It is a wonderful place - sp close to the CBD but it really feels like the country.

The children's farm is a great place to go with the kids. You have got old McDonald's farm here with chops free to roam, access to goats and sheep for patting. Guinea pigs to hold and much more.Cow milking demonstrations and such a beautiful and natural environment. There is a good cafe to get a coffee fix and something to... More

This place is educational and fun. It's close to the CBD but it feels like the country. Kids and grown ups can experience and observe farm life with a variety of farm animals and food being grown. Great day out. Also the attached cafe is pretty good.

Love this place. Always a fun day out with kids. Amazing that this site still remains so close to the city. Good way for kids to interact with some animals in a working farm environment

Great outing for kids. Lots of animals. Avoid the market days (certain Saturdays) if you dislike crowds and car parking. (Check their website for dates.) Market days are good if you like fruit/produce market.

Can you believe this little farm operates right here in Melbourne? It's so good! An easy walk along a path past goats, chickens, ducks, horses and cows, what a treat for kids of all ages. There's a cafe on-site which is child-friendly. Check the blackboard for cow milking times - kids even get to help out, if they'd like.

Located very near the city, this places is great place to entertain the kids. There's tons of space to run about and lots of animals to touch and play. The farm is located next to a river so take a short walk to Dights Falls located downstream of the junction of the Yarra River with Merri Creek

We went with two toddlers and I really liked how they could get close to the animals. I havent had very good experiences with previous farm visits esp with cleanliness but Collingwood Childrens Farm is kept quite clean but the most important thing for me was the the animals seemed well cared for. Will definitely be taking the kids again.
