A really great half day adventure, fresh air, grassy paddocks and only minutes from the city.

The Collingwood Children's Farm is a little slice of country life right in the heart of Melbourne, only 4 kilometres from the CBD.
It's a magical adventure for city kids to delight in farm life, hang out with the ducks, pat the goats, bottle feed the baby lambs and milk the cows.
Situated on 7 hectares of land just 4 kms from Melbourne’s CBD, the Collingwood Children’s Farm provides a unique, educational and fun country experience for city kids and their families.

There's lots of farm animals to meet and greet, from pigs, ducks, geese, horses and can even mingle with the goats in their paddock.

Family Day

The First Sunday of every month where you'll find hay rides and pony rides, a BBQ and kids activities.

We like venturing to the farm when the farmer's market is on, only $2.00 entry and that gets you all day access to the farm too.

For a flat fee of just $2 for adults (free for kids), you can visit both the animal farm itself and the farmer's market too.  That's pretty cheap considering that normal admission prices are $16 for a family. Certainly, a delightful way to spend a Saturday morning!

The Farmers' Market

The second Saturday of each month from 8am - 1pm, a chance to mingle with the country folk and purchase some wholesome organic food.

If you need a bite to eat, the farm has its own cafe serving delicious breakfast, brunch and lunch. There's even blankets to keep your feet warm in the crisp winter sun. Here's the rundown for The Farm Cafe.


Don't forget to bring along your wellies (gumboots), the grounds can get pretty muddy and take some sunscreen and a hat - you know the drill: slip, slop, slap and all that!


Collingwood Children's Farm, 18 St Helliers Street, Abbotsford 3067.
OPEN EVERY DAY from 9am to 4.30pm.

Entry to the farm is

  • $20.00 for Families
  • $10.00 for Adults
  • $5.00 for Children
