Spend a couple of precious hours at Echo Farm with your family, friends or someone special. This interactive pioneer farm experience has the familiar and not so familiar when it comes to animals. Whether you’re a self explorer or like to get full experience, there is something to for everyone..
Take your time to explore…
Enjoy a self-guided walk around the old-style farm at your own pace. Feed and pat some of the animals and explore the 1940’s farm house cottage museum. This option is perfect for families with very young children or elderly guests. As part of your entry fee, you will be given animal food to feed and interact with the farm animals and native animals. We suggest you allow at least an hour for your farm visit.
Experience the real pioneer farm experience…
The ‘Behind the Scenes Guided Farm Tour’ will have you helping the farmer feed the animals, collect the eggs, and give you access to some areas and animal enclosures that are off bounds to other visitors. You will also enjoy hearing stories about the farm and the local area.
The ‘Campfire Experience’ offers you a real pioneer farm experience! Help the farmer feed, check and put away the farm animals and stoke the camp fire. You will also be able to help make some damper in the 1940’s kitchen, before cooking it outside over the coals. Finish your visit enjoying more stories next to the camp fire, tasting the damper and some billy tea – a couple of traditional Australian favorites!
Guided Tour and Camp Fire Experience are limited to a maximum of 10 people per session.
