travels: collingwood children’s farm

A taste of the country in the city.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOn New Year’s Day when almost everywhere is closed, we were glad that Collingwood Children’s Farm remains opened. There are a few farms in Melbourne but this is the most convenient, just a short drive from Melbourne’s CBD.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe farm was relatively quiet. We guess not many were aware that it is opened on New Year’s Day. We missed the cow milking session but were in time for the guinea pig petting session. I thought Elisa would like it but…

We took a leisure stroll around the farm. Most of the animals were minding their own business,  not interested in us humans…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA..except these goats. They were the most enthusiastic of the lots, perhaps because we humans kept feeding them 🙂
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis fella was crowing at the top of his lungs. When one rooster crowed, this fella crowed even louder. It’s like the roosters were having a competition. I know it’s silly, but I actually enjoyed watching them 🙂OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAlthough the place is a bit underwhelming, we still had an enjoyable morning. It was a bummer The Farm Cafe was closed that day. I read they serve very good food! And because of that, we need to go back again! 🙂
