A Day on the Farm

Tractor leaves BBQ area at 9.15am

A day in the life of Mowbray Park Farm

It’s pretty action packed in the morning with supervised activities up until lunch time. Be at the BBQ area for tractor departure 9.30am we’re away to the animal nursery the kids get busy here, feeding some Alpaca’s, even a Donkey or two an annoying sheep and good old Scooter the Goat. Tomtom the shed cat might come out and say g’day then we have milking, getting grass for the bunnies, see if the Chickens laid some eggs ? From the nursery it’s time for the pony rides for our youngest guests on the farm after this we’ll squeeze in another activity before lunch.

 

After lunch you can plan your afternoon around doing as much or as little as you like with much self supervised fun to discover such as; archery, swimming, tennis, canoeing. bushwalks, fishing (BYO rod), cycling (BYO bike)  find a quiet spot to read or play some games down at the sport field.

Each day on the farm has been designed to ensure you get to see and do lots of different activities. Our mission is to make sure you get to the end of your day with a big smile, lots of great memories and a heap of photos.
