Australia, HOLIDAYS, Perth PERTH: LANDSDALE FARM SCHOOL 8 February 2014

If there’s something that just feels SO typically outdoorsy and Australian, it’s the Landsdale Farm School in Perth. At just AU$6 per person for entry, it may be not as epic as a zoo, but is just as engaging and fun for the family.

It’s a beautiful place to pop into if you have a couple of hours free, and even more fun if you pack along a picnic blanket and lunch, so you can sit and eat under the trees.

But let’s cut to the chase: Hunter’s #1 favourite attraction there was the mini tractor ride! A real tractor pulls along three little colourful carts, and it’s free to hop in for a ride. Hunter couldn’t get enough of it!

And… ummm.. frankly I look pretty darn pleased with myself too in this photo below 😉



There is also a buggy that was sitting right there under the trees. The kids could climb on it and “drive” it. It was a real show-stopper for all the boys!



But we came for the animals, right??

Most of them were roaming around, and the kids had a blast following them around and stroking them. They were super tame! Guess they’re used to being man-handled by kids galore.



A pic dedicated to my mum-in-law, cos she likes ducks!



And an ultra-rare vain shot of myself. Dad told me “Go stand by the tree”. So I did!

    […] Landsdale Farm (80 Landsdale Rd, Darch WA 6065) – a small farm that knocks many other larger animal farms out of the ballpark. At only AU$6 per person, it’s an amazing deal. Check out all the farm animals roaming around freely or their Sensory Garden for herbs and vegetables. They even have a large playground with a shaded dome over it, that’s contained so you can throw the kids in there without worrying about them running off. There’s a cafe there with lots of high chairs too, and full washing-up and changing facilities. (TIP: bring a blanket and have a picnic under the trees whilst the kids run around on the grass!) […]
