Avenue Emus, Emu Farm, South Australia

Avenue Emus is an emu farm situated between the towns of Naracoorte and Kingston in South Australia, in an area known as the Limestone Coast. For city folks and overseas visitors who don’t get the chance to see emus in the wild, emu farm is a fascinating experience to see lots of emus and get up close to these Australian birds. At Avenue Emus you can wander amongst the emus, and photograph the birds up close, and maybe hand feed an emu. There are guided tours, where your guide will tell you about the emu, its habits, and how they are looked after on the farm. During the egg laying season, you might have the opportunity to hunt for emu eggs.

Remember that this is a working farm, so be prepared to see products that come from emus! The range of emu products includes emu meat, emu oil, decorated emu eggs, emu leather products and emu skins. Products are available at the farm or delivered by mail order.

Avenue Emus also has sheep and goats on the property. During the lambing season, you can take part in bottle-feeding the young lambs and kid goats. This is a popular activity for children (and adults).

Avenue Emus is located on Thomas Road, Avenue Range about twenty minutes from Lucindale. The farm is open from 10 am to 4 pm Thursday to Monday. Visits on Tuesday and Wednesday are by appointment only. In the cooler season from May – August, visits are all by appointment. The farm is closed over Christmas (December 24 – 26) and on New Years Day.
