Pony rides are also $3 per person and occur between 11-3pm, though there are only two ponies so the line can get quite long. Note you need to pre-purchase your tractor and pony ride tickets at the ticket office at the entrance.

Right near the pony rides is a playground, including the Myuna Maze.

You’re welcome to bring your own picnic or barbecue (barbecues are free and larger groups can book a gazebo). There’s also an onsite Myuna Farm Cafe that sells hot chips and sausage rolls, sandwiches, coffees and snacks. It’s pretty uninteresting fare but will keep little tummies sated.

Myuna Farm is a great day out for families who want a hands-on experience of farm life. It’s handy if you live in Melbourne’s south-east but if you want a children’s farm closer to home, try Bundoora Park Farm in the north and Collingwood Children’s Farm in the inner north/east.
