There are a few important things to consider when you visit our farm.
Do not climb the trees as the risk of falls and injuries is too high and the nearest hospital is 45 minutes drive away
There is NO need to make a booking if coming by car, if you are planning to bring a group by coach bookings are ESSENTIAL. As weekends are so busy we do not accept bus bookings for weekends, only on week days.
There are no EFTpos or credit card facilities available
If you are arriving in a group of several cars be aware that the parking facilities are limited. Also be aware that walking from the parking area and around the farm may be challenging for those whose mobility is impaired. There are areas in our paddocks which are not wheelchair friendly.
NO dogs are allowed on the farm as we need to consider our own dogs and many customers may not be comfortable with dogs
No picnics are allowed on the farm. The nearest picnic grounds are in Mount Wilson, nearest service station and cafes are Mount Victoria or Bilpin - please check our map.
It is a good idea to bring good quality gloves to protect you from chestnut burrs and other hazards. We have gloves for sale.
Please avoid areas where farm machinery and equipment is stored or where hazard tape or rope barriers have been installed
All children must be under the constant supervision of an adult.
The map, faqs and links pages on our site are well worth a look, many customers have told us that they have been very helpful.
