Gledswood Family Farm Day
Gledswood is an authentic Australian colonial farm with many of its original buildings from the 1800s. Spend a day at Gledswood to experience an Aussie experience.
The farm day activities start at 11am when you meet a stockman by the drovers' campsite where you will have billy tea and damper by the campfire listening to his stories. You will then take in Australian farming history, see the kelpies round up the sheep and bring them in for shearing, see the stockman in action as he shears the sheep, learn about how wool is classed and try your hand at boomerang throwing. The stockman will demonstrate how to crack a whip as he tells you of his travels across our great land.
Due to the popularity of the event, it is recommended to pre-purchasing tickets online before the event. There is a maximum of 500 cars, and once this is reached, the gates will be closed. This is to ensure everyone has an enjoyable day and things don't get too crowded.
Gates open at 10.30am.
