Edendale Farm is a champion of sustainability and education. This community space in Eltham is great little place to take the fam and learn about farm life, our local wildlife and our much loved farm buddies. There is no set price for entry but donations are greatly received in the donations boxes dotted around the farm. There are a handful of bigger animals, a stack of chickens in every variety going around and some guinea pigs and rabbits that get a cuddle each school holiday! It is so laid back here. You can check out the kitchen garden, looking for worms, waving at some goats or playing in the sandpit. You can also have a turn of milking a cow or a goat - but these guys are safe, just a little stiff.
The information centre will inspire as well as educate with interactive displays and activity sheets to help as you run around and explore the farm. Don't forget to see if there is some chicken feed when you there! The cafe on site operates 7 days of the week but you are welcome to bring your own 'rubbish free' picnic on site as well.
Mamma's special mention: The Diamond Creek Trail runs parallel to the farm is a wonderful family bike track and gets you right to the NEW Eltham North Adventure Playground.
CELEBRATE the Winter Solstice HERE on June 22. From 3 - 9pm. There will be live music, delicious food, kids’ lantern parade, mulled wine, pony rides, fire entertainers and of course - the enormous, sculptural bonfire! Click here for ALL the details including links to book your tickets.
