You will explore Killara Station starting with a tour through our organic gardens, meet our animals, hike the hills to our historic sugar shack, take in the view over Pocket Lake and then back to the farm to collect eggs, give the animals a treat and meet Edward the Emu. This is a working farm so please have your dog on a leash as the chickens don’t like to be chased. If you would like to feed the animals feel free to bring apples or carrots. Suitable for adults, teens and children. Dog friendly ‐ on a leash.
