Who knew there was a farm within a 30 minute drive from Brisbane? I certainly never did! As someone who loves all animals, from dogs to snakes and everything in between, I was super keen to go. It's also pet friendly, a great plus for me (and Eddy!)
Here's some background information. All the animals at Serendipity Farm Animal Centre are rescued farm animals. I found it amazing how so many different types of animals could cohabitate the same area so peacefully. They are all obviously well-cared for, and have plenty of green space to enjoy - lucky them! Entry to the farm is only a gold coin donation, with all donations going towards the costs of maintaining the farm, so its all for a good cause.
Here are some of the animals that Eddy and I got to meet. Please note, I didn't get to take pictures of all the animals, as I was too busy trying to stop Eddy from eating all the different types of animal droppings... I definitely don't have photos of the camel, pigs, ducks, hens, and lambs, but I'm sure there are others. Go have a look for yourself, they are open every Sunday from 10am to 2pm, rain or shine.
All in all, it was a fabulous way to spend our Sunday. This would be a great and budget-friendly place for families to come and enjoy a day - there is lots of fun to be had! Eddy was exhausted in the car on the way home...
Little Eddy was absolutely shattered. Time to catch up on some zzz's!
My 3 year old son and I visited this farm today at Upper Brookfield. It was awesome! All the animals had so much space to roam around in. I was also really impressed with the hand washing station & sunscreen that was provided free of charge! They also had this great swing set & my son loved sitting on the old tractor. We loved it & will definitely be returning & recommending to our friends. The only improvement could be that a larger donation box should be provided cause we wanted to put in a $5 note because it was such a bargain day out, but the small donation can only allowed for coin donations. A larger slot should be used because I think they would get more donations. Such an amazing day out!
