Sunflowers Animal Farm

If you are looking for an attraction suitable for kids (and adults) of all ages, then Sunflowers Animal Farm, just north of Busselton, is the place to go. There is something for everyone. 

The farm has a mixture of friendly farm and native animals, and it is open year-round except for Christmas Day. We spent a couple of hours wandering around the farm talking to animals, patting them, feeding them, and making lots of lovely memories.

Our absolute highlight was being able to bottle feed the calves, lambs and joeys. These baby animals are in separate enclosures close to the entrance of the farm. Visitors can enter the enclosures to get close to the animals. We enjoyed patting and cuddling with the babies who were all super friendly and gentle. Staff at the farm are great at making sure everyone has a chance to feed an animal and are happy to take time to teach you how to do it. Feeding times are 10am and 4pm. I would recommend arriving a little earlier than feeding time to give you chance to pay and assemble in the pens.

Following the feeding we headed to grab a bucket of feed each before visiting the rest of the farm. There are plenty of photograph opportunities along the way with fun boards to stand behind. We enjoyed interacting with all the animals and I even fed a surprisingly friendly Whistles the Emu. But our favourite animal was a Clydesdale horse called Connor the Great, who lost one of his eyes to cancer. He enjoyed lots of attention and scratches and he was incredibly gentle, a gentle giant.

We found the farm easy to find just off Bussell Highway, heading North from Busselton, with ample parking. There are portable toilets including a disabled toilet and handwashing facilities near the entrance/exit. The farm is completely accessible for prams.

Pricing is very reasonable for such a wonderful experience and children under 2 years old are free. You can also buy an annual pass, which is absolutely worth it!
