Father’s Day family fun at Australia’s oldest farm Father’s Day – Sunday, September 3, 2017

August 26, 2017 Whats On No Comments Email Email

Treat dad to a day of family fun by celebrating Father’s Day in a colonial, rural setting on Sunday, September 3, 2017, at Belgenny Farm in the Macarthur region, just one hour from the Sydney CBD.

Belgenny Farm is Australia’s oldest farm and is open to the public just a few times each year. It was established by John and Elizabeth Macarthur on part of the original land granted to the family by Lord Camden in 1805. There, the Macarthurs successfully established merino wool production, wheat growing, dairying, horticulture and grape growing. Today, the ironbark stables, blacksmith shop, creamery, smokehouse and farm cottage remain, forming Australia’s most complete and authentic Georgian farm complex. It remains a working farm as well as a tourist attraction where those in Sydney and the surrounding regions can enjoy the country air and glimpse into the past.

On Father’s Day, Belgenny Farm will offer a range of entertainment and activities for the whole family, including shearing demonstrations, live reptile displays, pony rides, craft stalls, food stalls, steam engine displays, bush bands and the Father’s Day novelty races – a chance for families to compete in friendly events such as three-legged races, egg and spoon races and tug-o-war. Those interested in the farm’s history can learn more through farm tours taking place throughout the day.

Families can also treat their dads to a special Father’s Day gourmet buffet lunch, which will be served in the farm’s granary. Bookings for the buffet lunch are essential.

The open day event will run from 10am to 4pm and farm entry costs $10 for adults, with children 16 years and under free. For more information, visit or call 02 4654 6800.
