Calmsley Hill City Farm, Sydney

4.4
#71 of 198 in Outdoors in Sydney
Experience rural idyll just outside of Sydney at Calmsley Hill City Farm. The fully-functioning farm is home to sheep, goats, cows, rabbits, pigs, ducks, and peacocks. Pet and feed animals, ride on a tractor, watch farmhands shear sheep and milk cows, and take in a koala exhibition. You can take a break from the daily schedule of activities by grabbing lunch at the cafe. The farm also offers camping on a limited number of days from October through April. Reserve a few months in advance, though, because sites book up quickly. Put Calmsley Hill City Farm on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Sydney driving holiday planner.

  • My son wanted to see cows at Calmsley Hill City Farm. Although it was a very hot day, the farmers (including Ryan) did a great job of making sure we got to pat and milk the cows as well as pat and fee...  more »

  • A great place to take the children for a chance to get close to the farm animals. The place is not that big so can be done in 2-3 hours although there were plenty of tables for picnics, a small cafe a...  more »

  • Quite expensive to gain entry. Animals are great, tractor ride was fun although it could have gone longer (at least 2 laps)...staff at the front and gift shop are quite rude to be honest. The canteen closes at 1:30pm ! And it is very over priced food for what you get (so I would suggest taking your own). Since the canteen closes early they really should provide a drink dispenser or at the very least a bubbler we were there on a HOT day and all of us where DESPERATE for water by the end of the day (we had ran out).... All and all I would recommend it as a one time adventure ...
  • A great day out for the whole family. You can bring your own picnic lunch. There are plenty of baby animals that you can touch, pat and play with. The keepers are very friendly and are happy to have a chat and let you know what is going on.
  • Wonderful farm, we had a great time! It's small, easy to get around and some really interesting shows. It was so peaceful and calming. All the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful.
  • family of 10 had a great day..lots of things to experience..very clean envirement.great sheep dog show...highly recommended.
  • Only one chance to make a good first impression. . Arrived early and was met by one of the most unfriendly ticket lady working on a kid's place ...maybe she was just having a bad day. . fortunately the rest of the staff were great. Kids loved the animal contact in the animal nursery, milking the cow (by hand) the tractor ride, the whip demonstration and the sheep dog show .. weather was good the day we were there. It's was a good morning ... but quite a long drive from the city

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
