  • Is a typical Australian farm that can be visited by tourists who arrive on this tiny island from Philip Island. There are many animals to see.

  • 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.
