Bundoora Park is extensive and diverse. From the road a large natural park with loads of play equipment can be seen, but behind this the park includes so much more. Coopers Settlement includes a heritage village, wildlife reserve, community gardens and children's rides. Children can feed and handle animals and have pony rides at the children's farm. Bundoora Park offers a great holiday program for primary school aged children where they spend the day on the farm.
Gumbuya Park is family theme park set in natural bush land. This is a great family day out for relaxation, education and fun. Take time to see the Aboriginal Centre, native animals and birds. Wildlife tours are available, free BBQs and a cafe is on site. Allow all day to enjoy everything Gumbuya Park has to offer.
Collingwood Children's Farm
Unbelievably the Collingwood Children's Farm is open every day of the year. They offer close up animal experiences including cow milking twice daily. The Collingwood Children's Farm also hosts special events such as the Farmer's Market every second Saturday of the month. Every first Saturday, Family Day includes horse and tractor rides. You can milk a cow, cuddle a guinea pig and feast on an inexpensive BBQ lunch.
School holiday programs, kid's parties and the café make this an appealing venue for a family day out. The Collingwood children's farm is inexpensive at only $4 per child or $16 per family.
