Overview

Step back in time to experience life on an 1860’s working farm at Churchill Island Heritage Farm. Spend an activity-filled day with the family exploring historic buildings stuffed full of olden-day memorabilia, take part in hands-on farming demonstrations, watch working animal shows and fill hungry tummies in the café. The Indigenous Boonwurrong people inhabited Churchill Island for thousands of years before Europeans arrived, but it soon became a vital part of early European settlement when the first crop of wheat grown in Victoria was harvested here in the 1850s. Today it remains a fully working farm, with the buildings fully restored and all are open to the public. 

Good to knows

  • Visit in the morning when there are less crowds, but expect to stay beyond lunch to see demonstrations and shows.
  • There’s plenty of free parking on site.
