When you have that urge to escape the rat race and run away to the country, if only for a day, wouldn’t it be a relief to know you could get that serenity you crave just a stone’s throw from the city?

Well, here's some refreshing news! You don’t have to travel for hours for an authentic, hands-on, farmland experience that will get you face to face with adorable animals and reconnect you with nature. Calmsley Hill City Farm in Abbotsbury is less than 40 kilometres from Sydney in the Greater West, and perfect for a screen-free family day out that is udder-ly delightful.

Only an hour's drive from the city, Calmsley Hill is a real, interactive working farm on over 500 sprawling acres of tranquil green pastures and beautiful bushland with content fauna grazing in the meadows ready to greet you. The property boasts an abundance of wide-open spaces to soak up the sunshine, take a break for a picnic and let the kids run free among their newfound furry friends.

Finally reopened after months of lockdown, Calmsley Hill is back and bursting with exciting encounters, shows and exhibits to discover at every turn - and the animals can’t wait to welcome you back.
