  • We went to Churchill Island Farm as part of a package with the Penguin Parade. We went there as an older couple and went in the morning. It was interesting but would have been better in the afternoon ...  more »
  • The ride on the tranquil island is already fun, upon arrival the whole free running cows and to see other animals makes it all the more enjoyable. The offer in the Café and the rates are very good and there are a lot. The animals are all very tame and partially also willing to be petted. A great destination to stay 1-2 hours before visiting the main island!

  • That was on the tour of the penguins parade of second Stop.Die farm takes you into the past... a time, that was easy. The gardens are stunning, the historical aspect is very interesting... the employees are very nice. You had enough time so that everyone could do this and could enjoy the simplicity. We have two work looked at. How to free a sheep of the wool and how an Australian Shepherd drives the sheep on the pasture on instruction of the Shepherd. Very interesting to look at. For families a top tourist destination.

  • So many flies. Very picturesque with a few kids activities and a lovely cafe. Farmer's Markets every 4th Sunday with around 40 stall holders. A lot of overpriced goods, but some quality organic bargains still to be had if you are a canny shopper. So many flies.
  • It's very pretty garden, nice view. Great history. But I think there were not enough staff to guide about information. When I was there there were so many people and it was only two staff at the ticket. Lack of providing information.
