“Great way to start the day”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We ended up here for breakfast as we were un-able to find a restaurant open early enough to serve a vegan breakkie.

We got so much more than breakfast.

It was very difficult to put the animal visits on-hold til after we ate, but managed it.

Food was very good, I had a smoked tofu TLT, and hubby had oatmeal and veggie sausage roll.

we were further tempted by the great assortment of vegan friendly cakes on offer, so we took pretty much 1 of everything for take away for the football that afternoon.
The gals in the resto were super friendly, and once we gobbled our yums, we took a leisurely stroll checking out all the critters.

Would have loved to spent more time, but we had to drive away.

Only down side was the mother helping her young daughter choose cake and say. oh this one looks nice,, oh but its vegetarian?!?!!?, uh yeah, not seen too many meat cakes about and its a shame she didn't let her little one have it, it was lovely!

“Fantastic for small children”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

If you have small children who love animals then this is great.
Kids get to hold guinea pigs & rabbits which is an excellent touch.
Volunteers are also very polite, friendly & helpful - a lot of the staff in places we visit could learn something about customer service from them.
A lot smaller & more compact than Graves Park, less animals but better for tiny feet.
Has horses, sheep, pigs, goats, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, spiders, degus, chipmunks, ducks & chickens.
We got to see a goat give birth.
Has cafe, garden centre & childrens play area.
Completely free with on road free parking.

“I love this farm.”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

What a lovely spot in the city, with a number of rare breeds. The cafe does brilliant cakes and veggie food, and you can buy their eggs in te garden centre. It's great!

“Just brilliant!”
Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

I love Heeley City Farm and think it's well worth a visit. The farm has a range of well cared for farm animals and a small animal house where you can get up close and personal with rabbits, guinea pigs and even tickle the tummy of a ferret! Beautiful murals can be found around the farm and you can go from a sensory garden to a vegetable patch to a pond to a garden centre in a matter of minutes! It's really worth spending some time just wandering around the different paths and see where you end up! There is a small play area for the children and a quaint garden centre. The volunteers at the farm are really friendly and the cafe is well worth a visit whether you've got time for lunch or just want a cuppa and some cake. We have spent many an afternoon at the farm and have never once been bored or run out of things to do!! Don't forget to look out for the flying pig, toadstools and the popular farm cat, Jerry.
