Event description
Come out to Cranky's FARM for the day. Meet the residents, the people and find out what we do and why we do it!

About this Event

Due to insurance requirements EVERY Open Day visitor MUST HAVE A TICKET (including children between 2 and 16).

**TICKETS ON SALE FROM 8AM SATURDAY 9/3/19**

Please note: To protect the security of the residents the exact location of the sanctuary will be released closer to the date.

Come out to Cranky's on Saturday, 25 May and spend the day with us.

Cranky's FARM is situated on 200 acres of beautiful Australian bush land at The Summit, one of Queensland's highest suburbs.

What the day has to offer:

  • Meet and get to know the residents up close and personal
  • Entertainment - performances include the soulful tunes of Robbie Thompson and Rob Rhodes
  • Food and drink - a variety of food will be available for purchase but you are more than welcome to bring your own (vegan only)
  • Guided bush walks up to our summit which is a whopping 930mtrs above sea level and offers an outstanding view of the surrounding area
  • Cranky's FARM merchandise will be available for purchase (all profits raised go directly to animal care and rescue)

STAYING OVERNIGHT

Cranky's FARM is located at The Summit which is approximately 2.5 hrs south west of Brisbane. For those wishing to make a week end of this event and stay over night there are several options:

  • CAMPING ON-SITE - you are more than welcome to camp on-site at Cranky's FARM, however, all camping gear must be supplied by you. The only facilities on-site will be a porta-loo hired for the event. There will be no lighting, electricity, running water or other facilities. **Think rustic!**
  • CAMPING OFF-SITE - there are at least two caravan parks in Stanthorpe town.
  • CABINS AND MOTELS - there are a large number of cabins and motels situated within a short distance from The Summit/Stanthorpe.

TRANSPORT

In order to reduce this event's carbon footprint we encourage visitors to car pool where possible.

In the event that we receive enough requests we will consider hiring a mini-bus to transport people to and from Cranky's FARM (from Brisbane). This will incur an additional cost to be released depending upon numbers.

SOME RULES FOR THE DAY

  • All visitors must present a ticket to gain entry.
  • Children must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.
  • All visitors must wear or have available enclosed footwear which must be worn when meeting the residents.
  • The residents of Cranky's FARM are to be shown respect and tolerance at all times by all visitors to the sanctuary.
  • Out of respect to the residents of Cranky's FARM and because we are a fully vegan sanctuary no animal products (including food or clothing) is allowed to be brought onto the premises.
  • If you go through a closed gate, make sure you close it behind you.
  • The directions of the Cranky's FARM personnel are to be followed by all visitors at all times whilst at the sanctuary.
