Menozplorer - where to next then?

Now then folks, continuing the YAMtour of Sydney and surrounds, here are a few piccies from a visit I made to the 'City Farm'.  The land is state owned but the Calmsley Hill Farm has been there since the late 1880's though.  It is privately run and the animals, whilst penned for viewing and interaction during the opening hours, run free in the 500+ acres of paddock all the rest of the time.  I had a wonderful arvo there.

Sigh, if you look real close through the trailer, in the distance, suburbia is encroaching. Speaking with staff I understand that so far the farm is safe.  But for how much longer?


More views on the way!

It's a lovely area - even the new building has a good feel - not like some up the North side....
