Family Day (Meet the Rats!)

  • Collingwood Children's Farm 18 Saint Heliers Street Abbotsford, VIC, 3067 Australia (map)



The Australian Rat Fanciers Society are having a ‘Meet the Rats’ day, and are bringing their furry critters down for a day out in the Barn in front of the fire. 

They hope their rats can meet other friendly rats and new people, even ones who may have never thought of themselves as Rat Fanciers before!

Come along and see rats in a way you have never seen before, or if you are already well versed in the idea of rats as pets, come a meet some sweet and curious rats and talk to their people about what it takes to provide a home for a healthy happy rat.

They will be here between 10 and 2pm.

There are pony rides (10.30-2.00, not on school holiday or during Term 3), tractor rides (10.30-2.30), guinea pig cuddles (11.45 -12.15, 1.30-2.15 and 3.15-3.45) and an affordable BBQ lunch that starts at 11.30 am until sold out. Help milk the cow at 10 am and 4 pm.
