Echo Farm Tours provide an authentic, behind the scenes experience on a small old-style Australian farm. Take a step back in time, explore the farm, interact with animals and reconnect with nature while visiting Echo Farm, Mount Gambier.
The Farmers, who live and work on the property, will introduce you to animals and recount stories about the farm, the district and some local history while you stroll around the Farm to feed and pet the animals.
Animals change from time to time but you will normally be introduced to Tony the Donkey, Emmett Emu, Daisy Pig, Dudley Goat and Carl the Dog along with many other farm animal characters!
Echo Farm's original cottage and outbuildings were built in the 1890s and are included in tours. The cottage museum and outbuildings, restored and furnished with antique and vintage items will capture your imagination about pioneer Australian farming families, especially as you use some of the old equipment inside the cottage.
Echo Farm Tours offer a Behind the Scenes Farm Tour and a Campfire Experience as well as tours that can be tailor made for schools or larger groups on request.
