Group Booking


The Funky Farm Petting Zoo is a great venue for Group booking for all educational programs. We have a variety of animals that the children can pet, cuddle and feed, sometimes we have baby animals to bottle feed.


Our facilities consist of private undercover areas, which can be booked, hand washing areas, toilets, change table, high chairs, outdoor shaded areas, indoor and outdoor tables and chairs, bbq hire, toys and outdoor play area.


We have a colouring sheet and worksheet that we can email to your school upon request for you to print out for your students. They can complete the worksheet before during or after the farm visit. We can also provide you with an answer sheet. The colouring in the sheet can be done before to get the students prepared for their visit. Feel free to bring them in so we can put them up on display at the farm.


On the day of your booking, we will have staff situated around the farm to help the kids feed and pet animals. The staff are more than happy to answer any question your staff or pupils may have about the animals. It is suggested that you have enough staff to split into groups to move around the farm.
