Explore the Farm

There are plenty of things to explore and learn and experience on a working farm - check out some of our ideas below.

Walks and Wildlife

 

Walking on and around the farm is safe, however it is a working farm so please remember to watch out for heavy machinery which may be operating in the area. Also remember to take a hat, water bottle and always keep an eye out for snakes - particularly in warm weather. There are also umbrellas provided for inclement weather. If walking on the road, just keep to the side and you will be fine.

 

We have 3 different walks we recommend when staying at Redwing and details for these are provided in the guest compendium.

 

During your stay on the farm you can view some of the extensive wildlife in the area. The following is a list of some you may see: Grey Kangaroos, Foxes, Rabbits, Hares, Deer (escaped from a nearby Deer farm), Brown Snake, Sleepy Lizard, Blue-tongued Lizard, Bearded Dragon, Parrot, Willy Wagtail, Welcome Swallow, Barn Owl, Boobok Owl, Australian Magpie, Australian Raven, Galah, Wedge-tailed Eagle and Nankeen Kestrel.

 

Feed the Animals

 

Feeding the friendly farm animals is endless fun! Guests are welcome to bring fruit, veg and bread to feed the animals too!

Redwing Fun Facts & Games

 

You can find Redwing Fun Facts at each of the animal yards. Have a read about their quirky history and characteristics, plus if you’re keen, you can use all of newly acquired knowledge to fill out the findaword, crossword or kids quiz!

Grow your own Redwing Crop!

 

A bag of seeds used to sow the crops at Redwing is also supplied to guests. This comes with some easy growing instructions, so take them home and grow your own Redwing crop!
