We had such a lovely morning with our toddler at the Goolwa Animal Farm. The owners are so friendly and helpful. It was a perfect place for children as they can feed all the friendly animals (there are a good variety of animals too), have lunch, go for a tractor ride and play in the sandpit with trucks, cars, cubby...

I have been to the farm a few times now. My kids love it. Visiting the animals, cuddling the newborns (rabbits and guinea pigs), having a pony ride, playing in the outdoor playground and taking the train carriage ride. Owners are so friendly, give helpful and honest service, true hospitality. The farm sponsored a Christmas Party for young mums from... More

This place is definitely worth a visit if you have young kids and holidaying on the south coast! Reasonably priced and good value. Small farm animals like rabbits, pigs, chooks, goats, etc, and other animals like wallaby's, kangaroos, emus, ponies. Ability to hand feed some. Can ride a pony for $5 extra, but worth it for the experience. Enclosed playground,... More

My grandchildren are 8 and 10 yrs old and love animals so this looked like a good place to take them. After 2 hours, in spite of the heat I was hard pressed to drag them away. For $8 each ($10 for adults, $8 for seniors, $35 family) it was good value. Another $5 gave them a pony ride and... More

Amazing place and great family fun. Friendly and informative owners. Loads of animals to pet and feed. We also had a chance to feed the joeys. Train ride a bonus too!

We have visited several times. The children love the hands on experiences with the animals. Especially having pony rides and a lesson. Alan and Carolyn are great friendly hosts and Lou is great with the children on the horses. It's difficult to get the children to leave. The coffee is great too.

We chanced upon Goolwa Animal Farm during our recent visit to Victor Harbour and what a serendipitious surprise it was! The hosts Alan and Caroline, and their family were warm and friendly and we at once felt at ease with them. They were wonderfully patient in answering my kids unending questions. The farm is run with very evident love; from... More

All the animals were very age appropriate and appeared really well loved and cared for. Great value for money with a variety of animals, train ride and... More
