Take a Tour of Farm Animal Rescue - Farm Animal Rescue

Meet the chickens, goats, sheep, cows, pigs and other happy animals who have a forever home at the Farm Animal Rescue sanctuary!

Booking a tour on a Farm Animal Rescue Open Day is a great way to meet animals that have been rescued from the agriculture industry, hear their stories, and spend some time with our amazing residents.


Under proposed Queensland Government rules all tour visitors over 16 years must provide evidence of a current covid-19 vaccine on arrival at the farm. As a registered charity we are required to comply with government directions. Any tour visitor over 16 who is unable to provide evidence will be required to leave the sanctuary.

You can establish evidence of vaccination by:

Presenting the green tick on the Check in Qld app
Providing a copy of your immunisation history statement
Presenting your covid-19 digital certificate

Evidence of age must be presented for those aged 12 to 16 years of age, if proof of vaccination is not provided.

Here are the details!

•The farm is open from 10am to 2pm
•Our Walking Safaris will depart the visitor area promptly at 10.30, 11.00, 12.30 and 1.00 and take around 90 minutes. Guests must be accompanied by a guide when visiting the animals. There are steep hills at the sanctuary and there is a significant amount of walking involved.

At the conclusion of the tour you will have the opportunity to purchase FAR and partner merchandise. We will also be offering pies, ice creams and drinks to take away. You can preview our merchandise options in our shop.

Many of the sanctuary animals come from intensive farming and other cruel situations. You will be required to sign a liability waiver when you arrive at the sanctuary.

For the animals and volunteers
Donations of fresh fruit and vegetables for the animals are welcome. We can only accept donations of apples, watermelons, bananas, grapes, strawberries, pumpkins, pears and carrots.
Food donations will be placed in our food store and must not be fed to the animals by visitors.
Donations of packaged frozen, refrigerated and shelf items for the sanctuary’s interns are also welcome. All donations for the interns must be vegan.

Important Notes
The sanctuary paddocks are hilly and there are rough paths. Visitors need to have at least an average level of fitness and good mobility to successfully complete the tour.

While visitors of all ages are welcome, tour content is designed for ages 13 to adult. Guardians of younger children must be prepared to take additional steps to ensure the safety of their children, and need to be aware that the tours contain accurate stories of each animal’s history, which some may find distressing.
