The Farm community is a not-for-profit organisation. Thanks for your support and enjoy your visit.

Collingwood Children’s Farm is 5km from the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. We aim to bring city folk closer to land, animals,

farm life and community. The Farm exists to support people in the Victorian community who are experiencing disadvantage,

supporting social inclusion by delivering a range of programs from a rustic community working Farm.

Come for a leisurely stroll or a picnic in the paddock and watch the Farm community at work.

Your entry fees support the Farm to look after our animals and run community programs.

Please note: At busy times, for our animal’s welfare, the usual access to paddocks may be closed to visitors.

On days where the temperature reaches ABOVE 35 degrees, the paddocks will NOT be open and we will not be running normal activities.

In cases of extreme weather, the Farm may close early.

Our opening times are: 9.15am - 4.45pm. LAST ENTRY AT 3.30pm 

Well behaved dogs on a lead are welcome!
