Farm Fun for Kids!
All farm activities are exclusively for the house guests of Narnu Farm, therefore we don’t offer day visits or horse riding for visitors. So why not stay with us and get to know all of our adorable and cheeky farm animals and join in on all the fun!
Horse riding is always a favourite activity for Narnu Farm guests and can be arranged for ages 3 and up. Our options focus on providing a ‘horse riding experience’ for children. We largely provide riding for ‘first timers’ with no experience and have a number of riding options to suit younger children, through to walking forest trail rides and riding lessons in our indoor riding arena.
Narnu Farm’s horses bring many smiles to children’s faces!
|¼ Hour Trail Ride||3 yrs||$25.00||Ideal for younger children, this lead pony ride meanders around the farm|
|½ Hour Trail Ride||4 yrs||$35.00||Walking trail ride accompanied by Narnu staff on foot to offer assistance and travels through a forest|
|1 Hour Riding Lesson||5 yrs||$55.00||This option consists of half hour riding instruction in our indoor arena followed by half hour forest ride.|

Our horse riding is designed for children and bookings for adults are limited and cannot be guaranteed. We have a strict 85kg weight limit.

Animal Farm for Children
For our guests, children and adults alike, we offer complimentary farm animal feeding twice a day.
This activity is hands-on and highly educational and is one of the many highlights of a stay at Narnu Farm. Guests can get involved in feeding deer, emu, guinea pigs, chickens, goats and sheep. We also have year-round baby animals to bottle feed including lambs, kids, calves and piglets. We also can’t forget about collecting the eggs. All our animals are friendly and love a pat and cuddle. Kids eyes will light up with delight as they fall in love with our adorable animals.
In our hatchery, we incubate eggs, hatch and raise chickens. This miracle of life is easy to see through our viewing window and glass-sided incubator so if you’re lucky you might get to watch these little chicks peck their way out of their shells.
Kids will also get the opportunity to hold these cute and fluffy little chicks!
‘Elsie’ Bedford is our big red restored truck with high seats and sides. We take guests on a meandering tour of the farm meeting all of our horses up close. With buckets of carrots provided, children can feed the horses from the safety and comfort of the truck. An adventure of storytelling, galloping horses, sensational views and up close carrot crunching fun! $10 per person (under 3 free).
Please note: The truck ride for our guests is run in the afternoon on Saturday and on certain days mid week during the school holidays. Not available on Sunday’s or public holidays.
Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
