Give the kids a taste of life on a farm
Animal lovers young and old are in for a real treat at Brisbane's Mini Farm, located in the Logan suburb of Greenbank.



A relatively easy drive predominantly along the motorways will see you arrive at the farm where a whole host of creatures will be waiting.

Although 'mini' by name, the farm is far from mini in terms of its wonderful assortment of animals. Among the eclectic collection, you're likely to find horses, cows, goats, sheep, pigs, alpacas, ponies, a donkey, plus the usual farmyard birds.



The best part is, visitors can get up close to all the farm residents - in fact, they'd love nothing more than to have a pat and a handful of food. Conveniently, cups of feed are included in the entry fee (refills will set you back $1), so the animals will be - literally - eating out of your hand in no time.



If you've got littlies then make a beeline for the baby animal zone, where you'll find a selection of adorable creatures including piglets, lambs, kids, ducklings, chickens, and even some cuddly guinea pigs. Just make sure you don't forget the camera!

Other highlights include pony rides ($5 extra per child) plus a brightly coloured inflatable maze, perfect for the children to burn off a little bit of excess energy.



Feeding the animals can be quite hot work, but respite is available in the form of several wooden picnic tables scattered amongst the pine trees. Bring your own refreshments, or pick something up from the onsite mini cafe (and yes, they do have coffee).

During the school holidays they usually up the ante, adding such attractions as camel and tractor rides, and even a mechanical bull as part of a mini rodeo. Just check the farm's Facebook page for all the relevant details.



Entry to the Mini Farm costs $5 per person (babies under 12 months are free) and includes a cup of feed.

Always check the farm's Facebook page before visiting as it can close at short notice due to factors such as adverse weather conditions or sick animals.
