The farmyard and playground entrance is located at the top of the main house car park and is accessible by a paved walkway that is on a slight incline. We have installed induction loops at the farmyard entrance and welcome assistance dogs to both the farmyard and playground.


The farmyard is situated on two levels that are accessible by a lift. The paddocks, bird hide and picnic area are accessible via a gently sloping footpath. 

An accessible toilet and toilet with a baby change facility are available in the farmyard near the entrance.


The playground is accessible via a paved footpath with a steeper gradient. Please be aware that the playground is a woodland site with uneven terrain and a soft bark surface with areas of sand. 

An accessible toilet with a baby change facility is available in the playground via ramp.
