Step back in time to
experience life on an 1860’s working farm at Churchill Island Heritage Farm.
Spend an activity-filled day with the family exploring historic buildings
stuffed full of olden-day memorabilia, take part in hands-on farming
demonstrations, watch working animal shows and fill hungry tummies in the café.
The Indigenous Boonwurrong people inhabited Churchill Island for thousands of
years before Europeans arrived, but it soon became a vital part of early
European settlement when the first crop of wheat grown in Victoria was
harvested here in the 1850s. Today it remains a fully working farm, with the
buildings fully restored and all are open to the public.
Good to knows
Visit in the morning when there are less crowds, but expect to stay beyond lunch to see demonstrations and shows.
