unnamed (2)This Mother’s Day, escape to the country and treat mum to a day out at a rare opening of Australia’s oldest farm in the historic Macarthur region, just one hour south-west of the Sydney CBD.

Established by Elizabeth and John Macarthur in 1805, the convict-built Belgenny Farm was renowned for many years for growing wheat, horticulture and grapes, as well as producing dairy and wool. Despite the harshness of early colonial life and the long absences of her husband in England, Elizabeth Macarthur was a devoted mother to her eight children, and is regarded as one of Australia’s greatest women.

Families can celebrate their mothers at the fun family event, which will take place on Sunday, May 14, 2017, from 10am and 4pm. Activities include craft stalls, bush bands, animal farmyard nursery, pony rides, face painting, candle stalls, beauty products, gold trail re-enactments and historical tours of the 212-year-old farm.

Those from the city can get a taste of old-fashioned country life, with sheep shearing demonstrations, working dog shows, cow milking demonstrations and a series of novelty races which families are invited to compete in – including tug-of-war, egg and spoon and three-legged races.

A popular part of the annual event is a gourmet buffet lunch, served in the Granary, which overlooks the extensive Camden Park estate. Bookings are essential.Just one hour south-west of the Sydney CBD, the event promises to be a very special day for everyone in the family. Farm entry is $10 for adults, children are free. The gourmet buffet lunch costs $55 for adults and $29 for children.
