We conduct our educational activities on the property itself. The farm is a well maintained, enclosed and secure facility. Teachers and students will come in contact with farm animals during their visit. The environment includes open paddocks, bushland and gravelled pathways.

If have any accessibility needs, you can get an Access Key to the farm.

Group sizes

Myuna Farm can accommodate a maximum of 4 groups (or 120 students) per day. Larger numbers/ groups can be accommodated upon request.

Hands on Farming and Education for Sustainability programs

Our activities under these programs are divided into groups of 20 to 35 students. We need at least 18 students in a group for these programs to go ahead.

Animal Husbandry program

Our activities under this program are divided into groups of 10 to 15 students, with a minimum of 10 students and a maximum of 40 students per booking.

Environmental Tour

The Environmental Tour allows for a maximum of 20 students per group and is facilitated as a 2 hour walking tour of the farm.

Clothing and footwear

We take care to provide the best conditions for students and your program. Because our activities happen outside, please make sure everyone wears:

  • sturdy closed-toe shoes or gumboots if it has been raining
  • sunscreen and hat
  • a waterproof jacket and warm jumper, particularly in cold weather

Packed lunches

Please bring plastic tubs or zipped backpacks to store lunches in. The crows at Myuna Farm enjoy a packed lunch and have a habit of tearing open plastic bags and stealing food.

Medical needs

You will need to be aware of any special medical needs and allergies of your staff, students, and helpers.

Our staff have level 2 first aid training and a well maintained first aid station, but they do not have access to your students' medical records. Please inform us of any severe allergies before activities begin (particularly with relation to contact with animals, milk products and hay).

You have the primary duty of care over your students while at Myuna Farm.

Extreme weather

We have undercover areas and a few activities can continue during heavy rain or in extreme hot weather. If you are concerned about the weather (rain or temperatures in the high 30s), please phone 9706 9944 on the morning of your visit.

If you need to change your booking because of extreme weather, there will be no extra charge.
