A bit about our hands-on, fun and educational experiences

that children ( & adults) love

Some people have all the luck! The people who can run their own business while doing something that they really love…  We are some of the lucky people.

Animals On The Moves is a Mobile Animal Farmyard and so much more. We provide Animal Learning experiences, Animal Care Programs and Educational Pet Parties and bring our healthy animals and reptiles to the community – young and old. Our foundation and focus is to increase children’s appreciation and awareness of animals.

Since the year 1995, Animals On The Move have allowed children the opportunity to individually interact with our Farmyard Nursery Animals and also educate them on how chickens and rabbits grow, as well as, how to milk a cow and how to make butter. Simply put, we provide a hands-on, fun & educational experience that children (and adults) love.

With eight Mobile Animal Nurseries already operating in Melbourne, our business has a strong and highly regarded presence in the marketplace. From the feedback we’ve had over the years, here are some of the reasons we are welcomed and enjoyed by the community:

  • Clean & Fun learning environment – We offer a clean & fun environment, which is carefully set up & laid out so the animal experience can be thoroughly enjoyed by all.
  • Accessible to all  – no need for people to travel far into the country, we bring the animals to you! From shopping centres and community events right through to schools, childcare centres, retirement villages and children’s parties.
  • Friendly & helpful – Our team is always friendly and happy to help! We love sharing our knowledge & love of animals. We’re also respectful, clean up after each Animals On The Move encounter, and leave the place as we found it.

We have franchisees located across Melbourne and have recently branched out into NSW, with the aim to be “moooving” throughout all Australian states in the next five years.
