Lots of animals to feed, kids love it. The property is set in early 1900s environment and is great learning resource for young people to see how their grandparents lived in that era.

Had a great time with the family. My kids (9,7 and 4) loved seeing and feeding the animals and loved going through the homestead and seeing technology from a very different time. Would thoroughly recommend a visit. Great value for the family.

Our visitors enjoyed seeing the Australian farm and animals. Lots of intersting equipment and farm house is a museum. The new owners have some great ideas to build on this family friendly experience. We will be back soon.

Visiting from Cairns. Echo farm is like stepping back in time. Great place to wander and reminisce and have a pot of tea while kids go and check out the animals. Well worth a visit.

We loved this hidden gem. Kids loved being able to see all the animals and feed them (its not a petting zoo). Highly recommend you check this place out for yourself. Amazing service and so much to look at. 10/10

Went to check out the new look of Echo Farm and was pleasantly surprised. New Owners were very attentive and friendly. Look forward to another visit with the grandchildren and see their vision evolve.

An interesting gem on the outskirts of the Mount. Like going back in time. Good for young and old. Bruce and Linda were excellent hosts. I recommend it for locals and tourists alike.

Hi, We recently visited Echo farm near Mt Gambier SA, and found it a great little side trip. I understand that new owners have just taken it over, but the set up was really well done. I learnt a lot about early Australian life and...More
