Visit an Emu Farm, near the Warrumbungles, New South Wales

Have you tried emu? Not tried riding one, I mean eating one. Or an emu egg scramble? Well you can at Tooraweenah, in New South Wales. Little did we know as we travelled through the Warrumbungle National Park, between Gilgandra and Coonabarabran, that we would find a emu farm.

It was great to meet the family, check out their birds, and learn about benefits of emu oil. They have been farming emus since 1995 – and now have over 1200.

We were lucky to see these little chicks – they normally hatch early July. They are hand raised.

The farm shop was full of interesting things! Tours operate 11am and 2pm, unless pre-organised. You are best to book ahead. You can even request lunch or morning and afternoon tea with emu on the menu! Try the eggs in season and emu meat.

I wasn’t sure about an omelette or the jerky…at least they would feed the whole family.

We thought this map was very interesting! It is not something we have ever thought about.

Opening times for the shop do change depending on the season. If you see the open sign, come on in!

We just couldn’t drive past this sign, and we’re glad we stopped. We brought home some emu oil and emu soap to wash the dog.

Find Emu Logic at 2404 John Renshaw Parkway, Toorweenah – just west of Warrumbungle National Park. Or call (02) 68254346 to book at tour. Nearest campsites are in the national park and the Tooraweenah Caravan Park, find then in the CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE App and guides.
