The Collingwood Children's Farm is a lovely farm located in Collingwood, which can be accessed by train and tram routes from the city. Entry is affordable, only $16 for a family ticket, $8 for an adult and $4 for children. I found it very well priced and was happy I didn't have to pay a fortune.
My boys and their cousins loved the farm, the animals were so cute and friendly. The farm offers cow milking as an activity; my eldest son really loved it, it was a lot of fun.
It has its own cafe, so you can have a bite to eat while you are there unlike some other farms. They serve a lot of healthy and nutritious food there. The range of animals on the farm include cows, goats, donkeys, horses, sheep, ducks, peacocks, cats, guinea pigs, bees and earthworms.
There's a cute cuddly animal for everyone at the farm, my kids loved cuddling the baby guinea pigs and patting all the friendly animals. Every second Saturday of the month they have a farmers; market which is BYO trolley and bags.
Parking at the farm is only $6 for all day; the money goes towards a special foundation. My experience at the farm was pleasant, fun and I was glad to see the kids so happy. It's worth the trip and good to give different farms some business.
