Fun Kids Farm Adventures in Melbourne

Looking for things to do in Melbourne with toddlers? Discover the city’s most-loved farm experience; from long-standing paddocks to action-packed toddler playgrounds – e-i-e-i-o!

                          

Farms are Fascinating

Farms are a magical place to get active and explore. Not only can kids pat adorable animals, but there’s also so much to learn, like problem-solving skills and storytelling. Toddlers can begin to identify different animals through words, sounds and other senses. Plus, they can become more connected with nature and food.

 

Rain, Hayne and Shine Farmyard

The Farmyard is located in Balnarring, on the western side of the Morning Peninsula. Here you’ll find plenty to cuddle, pony rides, and often a baby animal in need of a bottle feed. Make a day out of it with a family BBQ using their onsite facilities.

 

Animal Land

Riding tractors, milking cows, collecting eggs and of course – cuddling! This busy family-owned farm has been around for more than 30 years and welcomes thousands of visitors each year. Get ready for an authentic and immersive country life experience.

 

Myuna Farm

Venture out to Melbourne’s south-east, where you’ll find this lovely community farm alongside the Dandenong Creek. Besides the usual farm escapades, kids can have a chat with the resident cockatoo, Joey Davis. Hop aboard the farm train to discover the intriguing wetlands.

 

Chesterfield Farm

Billed as an ‘educational animal tourist farm,’ this gem dates back to 1838. Kids can meet and feed unique animals like deer, goats and emus. Pack a delicious picnic and make sure not to miss Chesterfield Farm’s sheepdog show.

 

Collingwood Children’s Farm

Pigs, geese, ducks, goats, horses, chickens – and even a couple of cats, peacocks and guinea pigs! Located 15 minutes from the Melbourne CBD, this popular not-for-profit farm tends to draw local crowds coming in for weekend strolls, farmers’ market activities and animal hugs.

 

DUPLO® Farm Adventure

For something unique and special, did you know that LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Melbourne (the only one in the country) has an immersive farm made out of big soft bricks? Tiny tots can play with life-sized pigs, cows, large soft bricks, and a soft, squishy playground so little toddler heads stay bump-free.

 

Suitable for children aged 1-5 years, here little builders can let their imaginations run wild. Build a colourful DUPLO® flower for the garden. Climb and crawl through the barn. You’ll discover how LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Melbourne beautifully encourages collaboration, creativity and problem-solving.

 

And if you know Melbourne, you’d know the weather’s not always sunshiny. But not to worry, because this is an all-weather attraction; rain, hail or shine, it’s the ultimate indoor playground. How so? Soft play zones, millions of bricks, creative workshops, friendly car races, a 4D cinema, rides and more. It’s one of the funnest things to do in Melbourne with the whole family.

 

Plus, don’t worry parents – there’s an onsite cafe, so you can get your coffee fix before play. And be sure to check out the latest school holiday news and events – there’s always something new happening at LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Melbourne.
