Serendipity Farm

Tel: 07 54629171


It's best not to use GPS because it's not often accurate. The farm is located at 383 East Haldon Rd, Junction View.

If you are coming from Brisbane, take the Gatton exit off the Warrego Hwy. Go through Gatton and turn left at the 2nd set of lights. After Lake Apex turn left towards Mt Sylvia. Follow this for about 10km then turn left at the Tent Hill Hotel. At Junction View State School, bear left and this is East Haldon Road. They will be the high set white house on your left.

Where are we going today?

We just love animals at Family Days Out, and if you are an animal loving family, you should love Serendipity Farm.

At first glance, Serendipity Farm looks like any other small farm. It has sweet camels, adorable lambs, clucky chickens, beautiful donkeys and noisy pigs, just to name a few.

But if you spend time and take a closer look, you'll see some of the animals there haven't had the best start in life. It's the cold hard reality of life on commercial farms, that sick or injured livestock are usually put down to save on expense and time.

Serendipity Farm can't bear the thought of this (and neither can we!) so they've become a refuge for animals rejected by farms through no fault of their own.

Animals have their own personalities and feelings, and deserve the same chance of life that we have.  

It's quite common too for animals that have also ‘out grown’ their families to join the farm.  They  are often taken into homes as pets and the owners are not aware of the sheer size that some of these creatures will grow to.

If you visit early in the morning or late in the afternoon you can help ‘feed up’. Depending on what animals are here at the time you could be feeding anything from horses to bottle feeding calves or goats. Cute!

There's also egg collecting, hunt the veggies, and plenty more lovely little farm jobs that kids' will love to help with.

Don’t forget your towels as they also have seasonal swimming holes!

If you want to celebrate your next birthday with all of the animals, why not bring your friends down and spend the day with them! You can never have too many animal friends at a birthday!

A fun day out for the family, and a great eye-opening experience for kids on the importance of looking after animals.
