We went with Pete's mum & stepfather which the kids were thrilled about. We'd been thinking of the wildlife park but they suggested Churchill Island which turned out to be a perfect way to spend the day.
We enjoyed a lovely stroll around the grounds, finding many interesting things... the kitchen garden, animal nursery and the original well. It was perfect weather, barely a breeze, warm not hot and just enough sunshine. We stopped for a picnic lunch at a table by the ferrets cage - they've been introduced to the island in recent years to help keep the rabbit population under control. Very cute to look at but apparently they bite so I won't be getting one any time soon!
Here are some of my favourite things from our day
|This one room cottage was home to a family of 5!|
|Standing at one end inside the cottage, facing the kitchen end. Behind the door is the inside woodpile|
|The butter churn was one of the many cool things we found inside the 'half cellar'|
|This was MOST fascinating... a collapsible high chair with wheels!!|
If you're ever down Phillip Island way (Victoria, Australia), then I highly recommend a visit to the Heritage Farm!
