The farm was in a beautiful location, and the people very friendly, but we only stayed literally 20 mins as there was not a lot there. Animals were in small pens and only a few of them.

We were not expecting this visit in our day trip to the Philip Island. There's much to experience here but have little time, from whip cracking to milking cow, and from working dog show to sheep shearing.

We had our own private ranger (who was lovely and knowledgeable) take us around this working farm. Our main interest was seeing the sheepdog do its job with a flock of sheep. That was the best part of the visit albeit a very short exhibition....More

Well timed farm activities. Nothing Amazing to shout about, but a good 2-3hrs visit for kids with wool-shearing, whip cracking, sheep-dog demo and cow milking. Didn't go on a wkend for the wagon ride for kids. Definitely, a great open spaced farm to walk about

We missed the cow milking presentation but were able to watch the sheep shearing demo whip cracking demo n farm dog at work. All demos were engaging and entertaining as these activities are not available in city life. Farm spans over a big field with...More

I grew up in farming area so this place is a tad boring. My toddler loved all the animals. The walks around farm along coast are lovely and shows are kind of entertaining.

A combined visit here and phillip island. The heritage farm is very tranquil and picturesque. A snapshot of life for the early inhabitants. Wander through the homestead and a chance to pet some resident animals.
