Ds is 4yrs old and we want to take him to his first farm experience. I'm not sure if we should go Bundoora park or Collingwood farm.

I'd say Bundoora - I find it more hands on for the kids (feeding the lambs/goats), and can go for a tractor ride & horse and cart ride. There is also a great park there too...

I haven't been to Collingwood but can second that Bundoora is great. They can touch the animals, there is feeding times, tractor and pony rides. Great playground in the farm and one just outside called play space. The cafe isn't great but everything else is! You can take your own picnic anyway!

I much prefer Bundoora over Collingwood.

Thanks all. I'm thinking Bundoora now. What's with all the hype about collingwood?

Depending on where you live, Chesterfield Farm (ferntree gully rd, near eastlink) is great!

Tomorrow is family day at the collingwood farm, would that make it better?

Collingwood good but gets super busy and parking is annoying I've found, Bundoora is good too and I just found easier for us. Both great farms though and worth a visit.

So, we went to collingwood today because I thought that we can go to Bundoora anytime, whereas the Collingwood family day doesn't happen that often.
It was brilliant, the kids had a ball. We parked in the all day parking for $6, entry was $16 for the 4 of us, the kids went on a pony ride for free, tractor ride for free, pat/milked a cow, patted (and fed hay to) goats, chased chickens and ducks, cuddled a guinea pig and sausage sizzle for $2 a sausage. I would love to go back!
The atmosphere is beautiful.
