Mowbray Park Farm

There’s no better way to experience what happens on an Australian farm than a visit to Mowbray Park. With a rich history dating back to the early days of the European settlement in Australia, the Farm has been running since 1822 and shares both traditional and modern farming with visitors. There are a number of activities and experiences offered at the farm for every member of the family!

A Day Visit

A day visit to Mowbray is full of fun for the whole family and a great learning experience for both the little ones and those not so familiar with life on the farm. The day will start with being picked up on a tractor and includes learning all about farming, helping to milk cows, collect eggs and depending on the time of year watch as the sheep are shorn of their woolly coats.

You’ll also get quality time with all of the animals including donkeys, alpacas, sheep, pigs, ducks and enjoy a scenic horse or pony ride. If you are super lucky (and come at the right time) you might even get to see baby animals in the nursery.

There are also activities available in the afternoon such as archery, canoeing, tennis, swimming, bush walks, fishing (BYO rod) and mountain biking (BYO Bike).

The day visit experience has two lunch options; fully catered with local produce (dietary requirements are welcome) or a BYO picnic.

Horse and Pony Rides

Experiencing the farm by horseback is one for the memory books and there are options available for kids through to adults.

The hour long horse ride will take riders (over the age of 8) through the farm trail on one of Mowbrays gorgeous and friendly horses. Helmets are provided.
Please note there is a minimum of 4 riders at a time.

Pony rides are an important experience for young ones to grow a love of horses. Rides are available for kids under the age of 8 and Tillie, Bonnie, Jamie or Bella will take great care to walk at a steady pace to keep the kids feeling safe. Helmets will be provided (and don’t forget the camera mum!).

Mowbray Park Farm also caters for school trips, larger group visits and private events and functions. A range of accommodation options are also available.
