A lovely spot to mellow out and enjoy some sunshine, fresh air and animal life. The coffee is good, and the cafe menu looked good, although we brought a picnic on the day we visited. I've eaten there years ago and enjoyed the meal. Current menu looked a bit pricey, given that it's a family venue, but it's also easy... More

Great views from this place however, we are a bit disappointed that they do not sell long knock beers any more. Expensive drinks, but view is great. Would recommend going somewhere else for eats but starting there for drinks 😊

Had heard good things about this place and the online reviews were promising. Right from the start, the woman at the ticket booth snatched my money with a look on her face like she couldn't believe I had the audacity to interrupt her lazy day reading a book. Walked past the cafe which has outdoor tables. There were server stations... More

It's hard to believe you are in Collingwood when you visit the Children's Farm. It is a little slice of farm life right in the heart of Melbourne. Our kids loved milking the cow and cuddling the guinea pigs. It is so peaceful just strolling around with the chooks looking at pigs, horses and sheep. The cafe serves lunch and... More

This was a lovely little outing even on a cold winters day. The kids enjoyed cuddling the guinea pigs amd milking the cow. Cafe was lovely, delicious fresh food, good coffee. Not much else to do, perhaps not amazing for older kids but we were happy for value for money with younger children.

We cycled here and stopped for brunch. Was lovely sitting under the huge trees watching the passing parade of people enjoying themselves. The grounds are magnificent to wander around. Coffee is perfect. We'll be back.

For kids big and little who enjoy touching and looking at animals, this place is fun and educational. There is a café for sustenance. And once a month on a Saturday there is a farmer's market on the site. From timber walkways and lookouts you can see the river (downslope from farm entrance). If you don't want to pay to... More

A beautiful place to enjoy with the family! The convent grounds are beautiful, there is a café and a bakery you can go to for breakfast. The farm is cosy and the kids love it. There is a farmer's market on the last weekend of every month as well. Parking can be a bit crazy so go early especially on... More

Collingwood Children's Farm is a little oasis in the middle of the city. A really nice place for visitors to Melbourne to see a different side of Melbourne. As well as the farm (entry is free but you need to pay for parking), there are a few places to eat including the lentil place where you pay what you think... More
