Churchill Island Pics

Our day on Churchill Island Heritage Farm started out with Highland Cows and Clydesdale Horses but continued into much more.

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!
