Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ's

How can I visit?


GPS is a private residence and we're not open to the public on a day to day basis. However! We love welcoming visitors for group tours and fundraising events.

Group tours are held twice per month on either a Saturday or Sunday.

Can I bring my children?


Absolutely! Our group tours are suitable for children, however they must be under strict supervision at all times. We aim to show children the true personalities and value of farmed animals and how they’re not so different to the animals we share our homes with.

Greener Pastures Sanctuary is not a petting zoo and nearly all our animals are adults with their own quirks, but we love and care for them regardless.

Note some events (i.e. our Nup to the Cup) are adult only events. This will be specified on the booking page, but reach out if you have any questions.




What is the disability access at the farm?


As the sanctuary is located over 100 acres of gravel, dirt, grass and mud it can be tricky to maneuver wheelchairs and walkers. However, we are proudly an inclusive organisation and can curate private tours specific to individual needs. Please contact us to discuss this directly. Note, our toilet is accessible.




Can my dog visit?


We kindly ask that you please keep your companion animals at home. Caring for the rescued animals in our care is our priority and whilst you may trust their temperament around other animals, our residents can become frightened by new animals.




Can we bring food to the sanctuary?


Out of respect for the rescued animals of Greener Pastures Sanctuary please do not bring meat, dairy or egg products to the sanctuary. We do not have picnic facilities, however we do recommend a visit the local Drakesbrook Weir, for a picturesque lunch on the water. On tours, you will be able to feed our rescued bobby calves, Mowgli, Baloo & Bagheera.
We love when tour attendees bring donations of fruits and vegetables. After you book your ticket, you will receive an email with our residents preferred snacks!




How long do your tours go for?


Our tours are 2 hours in length.
On the tour we make our way around the 100 acre property meeting nearly all of our rescued residents and hearing their stories.




Can you take my animal?


Please note due to financial constraints we have had to make the decision to cease intake of new animals for 2022.

Currently the sanctuary costs in excess of $130,000 to run each year. As we are run by volunteers and run solely on donations from the public, this is a tough job for those who keep GPS afloat.

Our friends at 'Rescue and Rehoming in the Valley of Hope' may be able to assist you.
