Gledswood Farm Day
A great family day out... once a month, on a Sunday... see you soon!
Gledswood is an authentic Australian colonial farm with many of its original buildings from the 1800's. Spend a day at Gledswood to experience an Aussie experience. Read the review written by Shayne Denford from WeekendNotes. It says it all really!
The farm day starts at 11:00am when you'll meet our stockman by the drovers campsite where you will have billy tea and damper by the camp fire listening to stories from our stockman. You will then take in the history of Australian farming, see our kelpies round up the sheep and bring them in for shearing, see our stockman in action as he shears the sheep, learn about how wool is classed and try your hand at boomerang throwing. Our stockman will give you a demonstration on how to crack a whip as he tells you of his travels across our great land.
Following your day on the farm, why not drop into our cellar door for some lunch, an Australian wine or boutique craft beer.
You can pre-purchase your tickets here NOW, or pay at the gate on the day!
Farm Activities: 11:00am - 2:00pm
Price: $5.00 per person
Due to the popularity of the event, we do recommend pre-purchasing tickets online prior to the event. There is a maximum of 500 cars and once this is reached,
the gates will be closed. This is to ensure everyone has an enjoyable day and things don't get too crowded.
