Cruden Farm is one of Victoria’s most exciting green spaces. It is a place of public recreation, located less than an hour from Melbourne.

Visit Cruden Farm – a special place left by Dame Elisabeth Murdoch for the people to enjoy, that is now managed by a charitable trust.


Cruden Farm welcomes visitors Monday – Friday (excluding public holidays).  However, some days it is not possible for us to open the property; on occasions of high winds or other dangerous weather conditions, a decision to close may need to happen swiftly.

Please call 03 9789 1676 in advance of visiting.

Cruden Farm will remain closed to the public during COVID- 19 restrictions (hopefully reopening 4 November 2020).

If you have any queries, please contact us through the normal communication channels.

Cruden Farm cares deeply about the health and safety of our visitors, the broader community and our staff. We acknowledge that the suspension of normal operations is unfortunate but it is essential that we assist in slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Meanwhile, we hope that you and your loved ones stay safe.
