PLEASE NOTE: The Landsdale Animal Farm has changed management since this review and there have been many changes. We will update this review as soon as possible.
The Landsdale Animal Farm (also know as the Landsdale Farm School) is actually a farm school that is open to the public. Located around 30mins drive from Perth City, The Landsdale Animal Farm School, is good value day out and brings a little piece of the country to the city.
There is so much to do here, the kids will love it. The farm area is mostly pram and wheelchair accessible (including the toilets), and there are a large range of farm animals for the kids to walk around and see. You can find a daily schedule of activities on the Landsdale Farm website (link below). Other activities may also be held in the school holidays and weekends, so make sure you check the website to find out what's on.
Enter the chicken coops and see how many eggs the chickens have laid.
As you wander round there are some free roaming farm animals mainly, goats and chickens.
How cute are kids? Goat and human variety!
There are lots of varieties of animals to see as you wander round
After exploring the farm the kids might like to have a play. The large playground is well shaded by a shade cloth dome. It only has one entry/exit point and there are lots of chairs at this point so you can sit back and have a coffee & watch the kids without worrying about them running off.
If you want to bring along a packed lunch or snack, or enjoy a BBQ, there are lots of areas to picnic and three barbeques available.
There are also some aviaries at Landsdale Animal Farm - check out Joey he's a real chatterbox!
The kids will also love this cute little Gnome School on a small grassed area outside the farm area. It's a cute little cubby house set up like a Gnome classroom, our kids love playing in there and it's a nice spot to enjoy your packed snack or lunch.
And if all if that hasn't completely worn the kids out there is also a Gnome Trail that's included in the entry fee. There are two Gnome Trails to follow, you are given descriptions of the gnomes and you have to run around and find out what their names are. Our son absolutely loved this game. It took us over an hour to find all the gnomes and was a great way to check out the features of the garden.
Landsdale Animal Farm is easily one of Perth's best value days out (see website link below for up to date entry fees), so you must put this on your list of things to do in Perth with the kids. The kids will want to go back again and again!
