So we finally got around to visiting Collingwood Children's farm after 7 years of living in Melbourne, and I can't believe what we've been missing out on! It was a fantastic experience for all of us. Our children got to pet and feed lambs and baby goats, and chickens. They also got to hold and cuddle guinea pigs. They walked... More

I'm not sure if we just went at the wrong time (later in the day - cafe was closing up), but I have no idea why this place gets such great reviews!? Absolute snoozeville. Nothing seemed to be going on, no close encounters, animals mostly just in their big yards.. No pleasant feel to the place. It was a real... More

We have wanted to take our daughter here for over a year, and it was extremely disappointing. Great value as a family is only 16.00 entry but then when you are wandering around it makes you then wonder what for? The day we went was gorgeous so there were people everywhere. There was one paddock that you could get into... More

Excellent place by the river with heritage farm buildings. There is a market selling fresh produce held on the 2nd Saturday each month.

Loved the experience and so did my little girl. We saw cows, sheep, ducks, chooks, pigs, horses, etc.. had tractor rides and sausage sizzle. Amazing to have that land and experience so close to the city.

Wanted to get the kids out on a sunny winters day and this is the only farm we havent been to. Parking was a bit tricky as it was so busy and you do need to pay for it so keep that in mind. Unlike the other farms we have been to we were not given or able to purchase... More

Wow- anyone who can keep 14 2-4 year olds engaged for over an hour deserves more than a gold medal. Great value for money children's party where you can order catering from cafe or bring your own food. Cafe offered to cut and plate our byo fruit for us! The perfect peaceful party for little ones- thank you farmer Andrew... More

This is a great value family attraction. It is only 21 dollars or so for a family of 4 to visit. Children are actually able to pet the animals - plus abbotsford convent isn't far away for some extra sight seeing and lunch at Lentil as Anything.

We live in Melbourne and visit this farm from time to time. The kids love interacting with the animals and being in the middle of the city but feeling like they are in the country at the same time. One thing I consistently find with every visit is how rude and dismissive the staff can be. It's actually quite embarrassing... More

All this so close to the city. Took my kids here for my daughters second birthday and before she went to bed she said 'I had fun with the animals'. I think that sums up her day. We went through the farm twice as the kids just loved the animals. Trying to chase the ducks and roosters. In the big... More
