Farm animals have taken over Alexandra Park this week with Old Macdonald's Travelling Farm setting up camp for this week of the school holidays.

Owner Karen Campbell said the Fernery, near the Alexandra Park rotunda, was full of cute creatures ready for a cuddle or two.

“We’ve got lambs, goats, pigs, chickens, ducks and rabbits,” she said.

“The two baby goats and the chickens are definitely a favourite because the children can pick up the chickens if they’re not in timeout and the baby goats love to play.”

Karen said she had been part of Old MacDonald's Travelling Farm for five years and loved every second of working the animals.

“I love animals and I love seeing people happy with them,” she said.

It was a sentiment echoed by Bundaberg resident Imejine Cutler, who was at the fernery this morning with her children to check out all of the cuteness.

“I love that Old MacDonald's Travelling Farm come every year and that it's free for the kids,” she said.

“It’s something to do on the holidays and the kids love it, especially the goats because they seem to interact with the kids a lot more and they just chill and climb around.”

Old Macdonald's Travelling Farm will be situated at the Fernery in Alexandra Park this week until Sunday from 9am to 3pm.
