Extremely affordable place to visit that will delight whole family. Apart from a petting zoo it’s also a great educational centre. An unexpected delight is watching the trains go past over back fence

Visited here with a friend and noticed now family friendly it was. Good size carpark and free. Plenty for the children to do and learn how food is grown, and where it comes from - animals and vegetables.

Edendale farm is a lovely farming complex in the Eltham green area. It was disappointing though to find the advertised cafe running out of a caravan. I did however, have a coffee and a lovely freshly made muffin. Sadly, seating was rather grim with a...More

Took my three primary school aged children here this afternoon, and we had a lovely time! I held a stick bug and got to pet a blue-tongued lizard. There were lots of other animals around too and good activities for the children.
