Looking for something to do these school holidays? Then look no further! Animals 2U will be at Carrum Downs Shopping Centre during the first week of the school holidays, bringing their friendly farm to the city.

Everyone gets an opportunity to touch the beautiful animals, as Susan from Animals 2U explains that a hands on approach and caring guidance help children gain valuable confidence and knowledge about animals.

The small animals are taken out of their transport cages and placed in baskets so that they can be nursed, brushed and fed safely on laps.

Chicks and ducklings can be wrapped in soft white towels for easy handling and to keep them warm, or they can simply be fed in their cage.


This free event is available for all ages.
