Macka’s Farm @ Great Ocean Road, Australia


Our 2-nights stay at Macka’s Farm remains to be my son’s most favourite part of our journey.

We took the in-land route from Melbourne and stopped over in Geelong for grocery to make our own breakfasts.  It was roughly a 3-hr drive.  For dinners, we went to Port Campbell which is just about 10-mins drive from the farm.

Macka’s Farm is a working dairy farm and they also keep a number of other animals in their barns.  There is animal feeding twice a day and in the evening you could also try to milk the cows.

We were lucky to be able to see and feed some baby and newborn animals.

There were also new born buddies that were so tiny and small.

There must be at least 5 or 6 cats living in the farm, plus there were two litters of kittens when we were there.

And of course we wouldn’t miss milking time.  It was much easier than I thought, probably because the cows have not been milked for the whole day and they were well fed.
