Time Out says

It’s a barnyard bash with family-friendly activities from a simpler time

Replace those screens and gadgets with old fashioned village games, markets and farmyard adventures for a family day at Rouse Hill House and Farm. Enjoy wholesome country fare from the food stalls – think lavishly buttered scones and a hearty sausage sizzle, plus standard carnival fare like ice cream and doughnuts – while you explore the farm.

In between rounds of sack racing, maypole dancing, kite flying competitions and casual bouts of croquet, experience life on the farm. You can feed the cows, meet ridiculously cute baby animals at the petting farm and watch smaller farmhands ride a sturdy pony.

When you’re ready for a break from all the action, there'll be jangly guitars and banjos being played by fabulous folk band the Morrisons that'll sooth your weary soul. There'll also be a pop-up library and book-reading, plus a paper art workshop led by Sydney illustrator and designer Elin Matilda.

The standard entry price is $8, but if you've got a horde of youngins, grab the family ticket for $25.
