Paddock to Plate & Train Experience at Platform 1

platform 1 school holidays


How many stomachs does a cow have?
What is the name of a female sheep?
What does hay taste like?
How do you know if your horse is happy?

All these questions and many more will be answered as the Farmer’s wife shows you around the farm.

Make butter, grind wheat, collect the eggs and help shear a sheep. Discover about the food chain and find out why poo is an important part of a healthy farm. Walk the lush green paddocks and learn how Mother Nature prepares itself for the hot summer months.

The children will be learning about farms and farm animals without even knowing it; they will think it is all fun.

Have a train ride, play on the hands-on railway displays and have a go at the outdoor old fashioned games. Then feed the friendly farm animals, blow cow horns, walk the open paddocks and then warm up in the undercover picnic area with yummy homemade pancakes.
So bring your hats and coats and wear your walking shoes.
