Echo Farm will be closed for self-guided visits from 26 Jul - 24 Sep 2021 due to winter maintenance. Pre-booked Guided Tours may be available during this time.
Enjoy a self-guided stroll around our old-style farm at your own pace, meeting lots of animals who will enjoy your attention as you feed and interact with them.
Food for the animals and a walking trail map are included in your entry fee.
Book your arrival time and stay as long as you like until gates close at 3pm. The end time on your booking is only a guide, but we suggest you allow about an hour for your visit.
The animals, which usually include donkeys, goats, pigs, cows, sheep, chickens, ducks, geese and emu, can be fed by you using the food provided by us as part of your entry fee. Most of them love attention and let you pat them if you want.
Explore the farm's historic displays and out-buildings, many built over 130 years ago. The front part of the cottage was built pre-1890 and the back part over a century ago.
A self-guided visit is the perfect option for families with young children or those with mobility issues, as you can take as long as you like. Private guided tours and customised visits for large groups or schools are available by prior arrangement.
You may be walking through paddocks and grass so we suggest that you wear covered shoes if possible and clothes to suit outdoor weather conditions. We sometimes have baby animals born here that you may see, but it is best for them to be cared for by their mothers who may not want you touching them.
Extra feed can be purchased for $3 a portion and a limited range of soft drinks, snacks and souvenirs are available for purchase.
Last admittance 2:15pm; gate closes 3:00pm.
