Great for young kids to explore.. Safe surroundings and great organic food options for adults, and a great selection of sandwiches for my fussy little eaters.. Will go again.

Collingwood Children's Farm is a good day out with small children. They can see a cow being milked, collect eggs from the chickens and see all the other farm animals and produce growing. The cafe there is lovely and very popular on weekends, especially when the monthly farmers market is held (second Saturday of each month). The scones with jam... More

This place is run by volunteers who din seem too happy. 😬 Cafe closes early. There are some goats, some big pigs, some sheep, some geese running around and some beautiful horses. Lots of flies and poop everywhere. Lots Pop over if you are nearby. Nothing much to see

The Collingwood Children's Farm is part of the Abbotsford Convent complex. Kids love the animals, of which there is a reasonable variety of farms animals. Make sure you check opening hours before you go. The Farm is close to the city, it's easy to get to.

We had breakfast here, really good. Not sure I'd want to eat here if it was raining but otherwise nothing to complain about

Great spot to take the family, but incredibly busy on weekends(expect half hour wait). But good food,good coffee and typical Melbourne prices. Service pretty good considering how busy it was

The farm is situated along the Yarra River. Lovely place to spend a few hours wandering around looking at the farm animals. Particularly great place for kids.

Great day out in the beautiful Melbourne sunshine surrounded by beautiful landscapes, animals and great coffee. So much to see in this little piece of inner city paradise.

This farm is on the outskirts of the city but once you enter the gates you feel like you are in the country. Lovely animals you can interact with including cows, sheep, chickens, ducks and guinea pigs. Check the website for cow milking or bottle feeding times. Tip: the cafe onsite is absolutely fabulous

This is a must visit especially for our children and grandchildren for a fantastic day of fun and as an educational day to know where our food comes from and a glimpse of the farm life from one perspective. It'll be sad day when our kids have lost the idea of our food as my friend's children have in the... More
