A visit to White Ridge Farm, Elimbah
Like many parents, my partner and I share common childhoods set within farming cultures, and while life choices moved us into suburban living, giving our children the opportunity to engage in a rich and meaningful farm life experience continues to be important. A day out at White Ridge Farm Elimbah provided the perfect opportunity.
Where is White Ridge Farm?
White Ridge Farm is located an accessible 60-minutes from Brisbane at Elimbah on the Sunshine Coast, five minutes from Caboolture and eight minutes off the Bruce Highway.
The animals you will meet
White Ridge Farm offers families and kids of all ages the perfect hands-on farm experience. Visitors are given the opportunity to learn about, feed and pat a range of animals including goats, sheep, geese, alpacas, llamas, horses, cows, chickens, piglets, and “Gypsy” the friendly camel. There is also an enclosure of baby farm animals, rabbits, and hamsters, where families can sit and pat the newest members of the farm. Children are also able to learn about the life cycle of chickens up close.
A tractor ride
Following the animal encounters, families are invited on a 15-minute tractor ride around the farm, exploring the natural surrounding land. Ability to interact and engage with the farm environment offers kids the rich outdoors and experiential learning that they naturally love.
White Ridge Farm is a family owned and operated, and run with all the genuine friendliness that farming communities are loved for. Staff members are on hand throughout the visit to chat to families, help if needed, and engage children with the animals and learning.
Room to play
Included on the grounds of the farm are both a newly constructed 9-hole mini golf area and an inviting playground with climbing frames and trucks and toy vehicles, plus plenty of picnic tables. Perfect for a picnic pit stop! The farm also includes a safe and separate toddler playground. If you’re not prepared for a picnic, Phelan’s Bakery (McKean Street, Caboolture) on the way through to White Ridge Farm has a range of fresh sandwiches, pastries, and cakes, perfect for the hungry tums.
