Enjoy Summer In Melbourne

Collingwood Children’s Farm

Located much closer to the CBD than one would expect to find a farm, it is only a short drive or a pleasant walk along the Yarra. Collingwood farm is a modern day, sustainable version of Old McDonald’s farm. Full of all the animals you would expect. The seven hectare property includes gardens, animals, markets and a café.

There is opportunity to milk cows, pet guinea pigs, ride horses, bottle feed new born animals and roam with the goat. The famer can attract big numbers of family gatherings and children’s parties. The size of the property means that there is still plenty of room to roam away from the crowds.

The food in the café is delicious, alternatively take a picnic and sit quietly somewhere on the grounds. The cafes and bakery of Abbotsford Convent are also just next door. Stay for an hour, stay for a day

Families $18
Adults $9

Kayak Melbourne

See the sights of Melbourne from the unique vantage point of gently paddling along the Yarra River. There are different tours available that vary in length and have different inclusions including yoga and the Eureka Skydeck.

Instruction will be given to newbees. Paddling is a surprisingly relaxing way to get a lot of exercise and have a bit of fun in the water. What a great way to soak up the summer sun.

For the landlubbers there is also a bike tour available.

From $72pp
