Attended a wedding under the big oak followed by reception in the Barn. Very romantic and the barn was well set up and had lovely floral decorations. Food was delicious and well served for a group of 80. Different and very enjoyable
This was one of the favourite places to go when my children were young and it has proven the same for their kids as well. It is an up-close visit with farm animals and you would not know you were so close to the centre...More
I took my 4 year old daughter and she absolutely loved it. Her highlights were the guinea pig cuddles, feeding the sheep and being able to run around with a lot of the animals. I thought there would be more interaction and animals but for...More
We came here when our kids were about 8 & it was fine. Today we brought our grand daughter 27 years later & I must say it was disappointing in fact mediocre at best.
The place is run down. The only thing they are interested...More

Cafe had no seating as you had to exit the farm completely and...More

Follow Henry R advice to get there by public transport. Otherwise if you drive take Punt Road North which becomes Hoddle Street. At Johnson Street take a right until you get 1 block before the Yarra River. Take another right then left. It's at the end of that street. Otherwise Google map it
Best way to get to Collingwood Children's farm from Hawthorn (8 Replies)
Hello, need some advice here. I am planning a visit to Collingwood Children's farm next Monday. What's the best way to get there from Hawthorn (College St)? I did a search on ptv journey planner but it suggested an almost 1 hr journey with multiple changes of tram/train. Since we will be having our rental car, is it better for us to drive there? Thanks.
