Back to Nature holiday fun
Edendale Farm offers free and inexpensive holiday programs, starting from $4 per child, these school holidays.

Creepy Critters Art
[ADVERT]Offered on Wed 25 Sept at 10, 11.15 and 1pm.
Following a habitat walk to learn about insects, an artist will work with children to create creepy critters from found and recycled materials. Masterpieces can be taken home or added to the display at the farm.
Wildlife Xposure Creepy Crawlies
Three programs on Wed 2 Oct at 10, 11.15 and 1pm.
Designed to help children learn more about invertebrates, their life cycles and survival skills. I hate to imagine how this one is interactive. Insects maybe, molluscs okay but my mummy modelling is challenged when it comes to going close to arachnids.
Farmers conduct guided farm tours everyday of the holidays from 23 September – 4 October. Children can feed the chooks, pat the guinea pigs, milk the goat and feed the baby goat kids. Suitable for three year old and older.
Bookings are essential and can be made by calling 9433 3711 but you can pay on the day. Or you can just turn up at any time and enjoy the farm at your own leisure for a gold coin donation.
My daughters love going to Edendale Farm, especially the guinea pig patting and baby goats. Well worth the drive and now they have a cafe so you can relax with a cuppa! With the adventure playground just a short walk across the creek it makes for a great and cheap (if you take a picnic lunch) day out with the kids.
