A great place to spend some hands on time with some cute & cuddly farm animals while you are in Echuca. Let one of our friendly assistants introduce you to Daisy the duck, Chocky the sheep, Janet & Roxy the silky chickens & all their friends. Children love the hands on experience with the baby animals. Purchase a bag of feed to roll down the chutes to the Farm Yard Animals. Most of our baby animals are for sale. If you are looking for a well handled kitten, puppy, rabbit, guinea pig or even a goat give us a call. Our usual Animal Nursery Times are 11.00am, 1.30pm & 3.00pm. Please note that these are subject to change, so if during the week out of school holidays, please phone ahead for availability to avoid disappointment.
Horse Drawn Museum
Enjoy a guided tour through some early Australian memorabilia. View items such as the Apple Cart originally used in Harcourt. 100 year old bales of hay that are held together with wire instead of twine. View a side saddle and wonder at how the ladies stayed on jumping over hunting panels!!!
Our bigger animals are also available to be viewed in this area. Punkin the Donkey, one of our calves & our friendly goats. You can also take a walk through the Frisbee Golf area and see Wilson the Emu.
Mobile Animal Nursery & Pony Rides
Billabong Ranch also has a fantastic Mobile Animal Nursery. A wonderful addition to any Christmas Party, Fete in fact any event that involves children. The animals can also be used for TV Commercials, Television Series and Movie Work. The larger animals roam around while the smaller animals are presented to the children to hold & pet by one of Billabong’s Animal Nursery staff. The enclosure is adjustable & therefore can be made to fit most areas. Ponies of varying sizes are also available for pony rides.
