Description

Proudly sponsored by Eltham Paediatrics we are offering another Sensory Friendly Farm Visit these holidays tailored to suit children on the Autism Spectrum.

Join the farmers to meet some of our friendly animals, in a small, sensory friendly sized group.

 

Depending on the weather and the needs of the group you will meet some of our animals in a quiet space on the farm or in their enclosures. Animals you might meet could include guinea pigs, chickens, sheep, goats, alpacas or our calves.

 

The 45 minute activity costs $8 per person (no charge for parents or carers) and is suitable for all ages.

 

Bookings are essential.

 

Children must be accompanied by an adult.
