COVID 19 UPDATES

The NSW Government has announced that businesses can now plan to reopen in October, once the state reaches the 70% vaccination rate. In line with this guidance, Calmsley Hill City Farm is excited to be working towards a reopening date of Wednesday 13th October, for guests who are fully vaccinated (note: children under 16 years & guests with medical exemptions will not need to be vaccinated to visit).

We continue to implement a range of health & safety measures that are in line with Government advice, and all of our plans and visitation guidelines are subject to NSW Health Orders at the time of reopening.

Please scroll down for more information, including new opening times. We look forward to seeing you soon!

NOTE: The government has announced an upgrade to the Service NSW app from the end of October, which will allow guests to both check-in and show confirmation of being fully vaccinated using the Service NSW app. Our current rules are subject to change in line with government advice.

Do my kids need to be Vaccinated?

Children 16 years and over are required to be double vaccinated unless they have a medical exemption.

Will your staff be double vaccinated?

All of our staff will be double vaccinated unless they have a proof of a medical exemption in line with the NSW guidelines.

What if I’ve only had one vaccination?

Only fully vaccinated people, children under 16 years & guests with medical exemptions are permitted to enter our attractions, according to current Government guidance. Unfortunately, we cannot make exceptions for those who have received only one vaccination.

When will I need to wear a mask?

Masks will need to be worn while watching shows, inside the gift shop, and inside the nursery.

Will your staff be wearing masks?

All staff will be wearing masks except whilst performing shows or driving the tractor. As the state reaches the 80% vaccination rate, we will have staff wearing masks indoors only.

Annual Passes and Gift Certificates

All annual passes and gift certificates purchased before the lockdown will be automatically extended by 6 months. You do not need to do anything to make this happen.

Prior to your Arrival

At this time, you do not need to make a booking to come to the farm, however we will be monitoring numbers to allow for social distancing.

The tractor rides tend to sell out fast, so please arrive as early as possible to ensure you get a seat!

We politely request that you refrain from visiting our attraction should you start displaying any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19.

Upon Arrival at The Farm

Please ensure you check in using the QR codes before you enter the Farm.

Please have your vaccination certificate and ID ready to be viewed.

Guests will notice new information signage informing them of key safety messages and instructions.

Social Distancing Measures on The Farm

We have reduced the number of passengers on each tractor ride to allow for social distancing.

The cow milking show will be a demonstration only until further notice.

We have limited the number of guests allowed in the nursery at one time, however we will still ensure that everyone gets a chance to feed and pat the animals.

We have suspended some experiences to ensure that social distancing is suitably maintained, this includes the Koala Talk and the Animal Petting Show.
