A country farm in the heart of the city.
Located in Canberra . . . within ‘Cooee-distance’ of Parliament House.
The Farmyard Nursery is a family owned and operated business, designed to provide city children with an opportunity to experience a glimpse into life on a country farm.
The family operated and managed an Australian Lowline cattle stud for over 15 years and has a wealth of experience in animal handling and management. In recent years we have provided a hands-on, work experience facility in cattle handling and husbandry for veterinary students from Sydney University and local high schools.
With the opening of The Farmyard Nursery we now offer a venue where young children can come to learn about farm animals and the products they produce.
We offer an educational and fun-filled, hands-on experience with a variety of baby farm animals (and their mothers) that will delight and entertain children . . . and their parents!
