A school excursion that engages all the senses: touch, feel, play and learn!
Why learn inside when you can experience nature’s ‘outdoor’ classroom?
Animal Land Children’s Farm offers one of Australia’s best school excursion programs. Our school tours cater for boys and girls from Kinder to Year 9 and offer your students a practical, hands-on learning experience. It’s one of the most authentic education experiences available outside a classroom.

Our highly educated, trained and dedicated tour leaders encourage interactive discussions with the students and cover a wide range of important topics delivered in a fun, engaging and hands-on way. The children will learn about the various animal species, get an insight into how a farm really works, understand the interplay between the farm and the environment and learn the importance of the natural environment to the community.

All tours are tailored to meet the children’s ages and class room requirements and they’re delivered in a way that will have your students laughing while they learn.

For teachers wanting to offer their students an exceptional educational experience, wrapped up in a dynamic and fun package, this immersive farm tour cannot be matched.

All our tour leaders have their ‘Working With Children’ ticket.
