Churchill Island Heritage Farm Tours

12 reviews
Clinging to Phillip Island by a single bridge, the tiny Churchill Island is one of Melbourne’s most unique attractions - a scenic patchwork of farmlands, heritage gardens and wetlands, where time appears to have stood still. Despite encompassing a mere 57 hectares, the small island boasts a significant history, as one of the first agricultural developments of European settlers back in the 18th century.

Today, the historic farmhouses and lands have been preserved as the Churchill Island Heritage Farm, a working farm where visitors can discover pioneer farming techniques and learn about the island’s long history. Visitors can follow the walking trails around the island, watch traditional activities like cow milking, blacksmithing, sheep shearing and working dog demonstrations, peek into the cottages and outhouses to gain an understanding of the lives of the early settlers, and even purchase local produce at the monthly farmers market or gift shop.

Practical Info

The Churchill Island Heritage Farm is located on Churchill Island, around 130km south of Melbourne, and is open daily from 10am-5pm. Adult admission at the time of writing is AU $12.25.
