The Myuna Farm in Doveton is a gorgeous little community farm managed by the council of City of Casey. Families can visit the working farm and get hands-on contact with a variety of animals and learn about farming processes, farm animals as well as various sustainability activities. Melbourne contributor @littlemonkeys.melb visited the Myuna Farm recently and was very kind to share some great pics and their thoughts on their visit.
Kids can pat and cuddle baby farm animals such as rabbits, goats, guinea pigs, sheep every day at the Animal Display Centre. Kids can also chat to resident Joey the talking cockatoo and other birds in the aviary. Visitors can get up close to Australian native animals such as kangaroos, cockatoos and emus as well as visit the reptile displays for all things creepy crawly, such as snakes, turtles and lizards.
Visitors can also walk the feed trails around the paddocks and feed lots of different farm animals.
Young children will love riding ponies too.
Families will love to sit back and enjoy the farm train as it goes past the animals and landscapes, down to the wetlands. An easy way to visit the colony of flying foxes at the wetlands a kilometre down the farm. Visitors can also talk a walk through the wetland's boardwalks and view the native wildlife that share the natural environment.
Or spend the afternoon getting lost in the farm maze and exploring the playground and gardens.
