Annual Farm Day - Held in May Annually

photoBirdwood Primary School has become famous for its Annual Farm Day which is typically held in May. Open between 10.00am - 4.00pm it is set in the beautiful Mount Crawford Forest, just 10 km from Birdwood. This setting makes it ideal to bring all the family for a fabulous day out!

2016 Farm Day will be held on Sunday the 15th of May.

First held in 1973, Farm Day has become an integral part of the school and the local community. Although originally conceived as a fundraiser it has grown to be much more. The Farm Day regularly attracts crowds of 5000-6000 people who enjoy a family day in the forest with a farming flavour.
