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

Lovely small farm with lots of chooks more than any other animals. There are also cows, sheep, lamb, ducks, horses and guinea pigs. Good for entertaining kids and hanging out with friends and family.

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

A farm experience for the little ones brought out squeals of delight over patting the farm animals that were roaming freely on this farm. The chubby chickens were quite a sight, the goats were too cute, ducks and peacocks were spotted and our little one...More

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.
