Animal Land Children’s Farm – an authentic farm experience for children and families.

We offer public tours, student groups, children’s parties – all just 30 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD.

Animal Land Children’s Farm is Melbourne’s premiere farm experience. For more than 30 years this unique attraction has offered visitors to the only truly authentic, first-hand experience of a working farm.

Animal Land has been specifically set up to give children a tangible, practical farming experience. Unlike other animal attractions and zoos where visitors simply observe the animals from a distance, our visitors get to hold, pat, feed, ride and immerse themselves in farm life first-hand.
