NDIS Approved - Animal Farm Program

As an approved NDIS provider, our aim is to assist NDIS participants with ongoing ‘Capacity Building’ focused on self-determination skills and development of independence. In short, we work with clients to achieve their specific goals & outcomes with progress reports available. Our staff are experienced with delivering special needs’ education and we tailor each participant’s regular visit to help them develop life-skills based around "caring" for animals. Examples include communication and practical hands-on skills like feeding animals and simple task responsibilities in a friendly, affirming, educational based environment.
Types of Activities available
The farm has a wide range of animals which includes horses, chickens, guinea pigs, rabbits, goats, turkeys, alpacas, pigs, sheep, donkeys and a cow! Below is a list of activities:
- Interact with our alpacas, cow and goats
- Learn to lead and groom our mini horses
- Feed and pet our pigs & donkeys
- Cuddle and groom our guinea pigs & rabbits
- Wash the various animals (seasonal)

The two-hour sessions are available both morning and afternoon with the standard price per person being $80 (GST free) with a minimum of two people per session including carers. If payment is completed by a register NDIS coordinator then an invoice can be provided (excl. GST). In addition, a further 5% discount is offered to regular clients who book with us via email and are invoiced monthly or quarterly in advance (instead of booking online). Participants will be moving around on the farm, so come prepared with hats, sunscreen, closed in shoes, long pants if doing horse riding and enough drinking water (as this is not provided). The farm is closed on Sundays & public holidays.
