Leave Melbourne for a day and experience life on a real Australian farm. Get a taste of Australian farming life at Warrook, a 120-hectare cattle farm, located an hour from Melbourne. Explore this historic farm property with its antique furniture, take part in a countryside trip in a hay cart, watch the sheepdogs in action, or try milking a cow. After this day on the farm, finish with a visit to Phillip Island to watch the very popular Penguin Parade.
