Opportunities for city children to explore the world of farm life are few and far between unless you are prepared to travel.

Conveniently located in the northern Perth suburb of Darch, approximately 25 minutes from the CBD, Landsdale Farm School is a hands on learning experience for children.



Run by the West Australian Education Department, Landsdale Farm School is classified as an Education Support School; however, they are open to the public for visits on most days of the year.

The Farm maintains an interactive environment with fenced off areas allowing a small number of animals such as sheep, chickens, ducks, and kid goats to walk freely amongst the visiting public.

Larger animals are contained within their own securely fenced yards that are easily accessible for viewing via a network of paths. For safety reasons entry into large animal enclosures is restricted to Farm staff.



Should your children find rides appealing there is a mini tractor-train doing circuits of the area. The first ride comes free with entry; subsequent rides are by gold coin donation. There is room in the carriages for adults should you wish to ride along with your little ones.

The Farm also boasts an accessible, sun-safe playground. Ramps within the playground mean that mobility challenged children are not left out of this fun area. Shade cloth covering the playground provides protection from harmful UV light and the intense heat of the summer sun.

Although not as interesting to children as the playground, the herb and vegetable gardens will appeal to mums and dads. A stroll through the gardens can be highly educational and relaxing, and don't forget to get the little ones to keep an eye out for gnomes...

Landsdale Farm School is also home to the Haystack cafe where diners can enjoy a delicious alfresco meal. Alternatively, those seeking a more rustic, time honoured tradition can bring along a picnic blanket and make use of the numerous shaded lawn areas. Barbecues are available on site; however, it is recommended that you bring your own barbecue tools.

If you fancy waking up to the sounds and smells of the farm accommodation is available on site at a rate of $30 a night for adults and $16 a night for children.
