Event Packages

For public events, our small animals are safely placed in runs where children can reach in to pat and feed them.  Our larger animals are available for bottle and hand feeding.  Staff are available to help with feeding and patting.  For longer events, we bring along extra animals and particularly on hot days, the smaller animals are kept in an air conditioned vehicle and alternated to avoid heat stress.  This means alert animals all day for your event!

We have two packages to choose from:-

Event 1 enclosure – small animals placed in 3 runs, up to 8 larger animals in central area (lambs, kids, chickens and ducks)

Event 2 enclosure – small animals placed in 5 runs in one enclosure and several larger animals in 2nd enclosure

“Barnyard Buddies are absolutely amazing! It has to be the best petting zoo hire I have encountered. They came in and delivered an outstanding and personal service at our Bunnings family night, entertaining 300 people with their wide selection of furry friends, the adults and kids adored the close interaction with the animals. What’s more, the girls arrived early with beaming smiles and set up super efficiently. The entire service from start to finish was flawless and I am extremely grateful. Unlike many other petting zoo hires in Perth, the animals were awake and approachable and there was a high level of interaction including feeding and cuddling. Needless to say I will definitely be using Barnyard buddies again and I will continue to rave on about how wonderful they are, keep up the great work girls!”

 

FAQ:

What are your prices?  Please fill out the form on the contact us page and we will e-mail you details of availability and pricing within 24 hours.

We don’t have grass, can we still book?  Yes!  We can set up on grass or concrete.  In the case of concrete, we bring along a tarpaulin to put on the floor and hay for the animals to eat.  When we’re finished, we fold it up and take it all away, like we were never there!

What if it’s raining?  We have waterproof shelters for all of our animals.  Alternatively, you can put us under your patio or in your garage.  However, rain could cause a problem for pony rides.  If you have a sheltered area for walking a pony, Great!  If not, we wait for the rain to stop or refund the difference if they don’t happen.

How much space do you need?  Our enclosures are flexible and we can set up in most spaces.  If shade is needed to be provided by us, our shades are minimum 3m x 3m.  Please let us know if you are worried about the amount of space you have.

What age group is this suitable for?  Any age.  If you love animals, age doesn`t matter.  However, not any child.  Please think whether this is suitable for your child.  We encourage parents of younger children to come into the enclosure with them.

How many people can go into the enclosure?  For the best experience for your child, we allow maximum 10 children into the small animal enclosure at any one time.  This means they can have the experience of holding a little guinea pig, rabbit or chicken, whilst we are ensuring theirs and the animals safety.

Can we feed the animals?  Yes!  Our guinea pigs love carrots.  The sheep and goats loves carrots too and we bring food in plastic cups.  Lambs and kids usually drink around three bottles each.

Can we have the party at my local park?  You’ll need to check with your local council.  Often, it’s just a case of filling out a form.  They will ask for a copy of our Public Liability Insurance, which we will be happy to send to you upon request.

How are you different to other petting zoos?  Our first concern is ensuring everyone has a great time, whilst ensuring our animals health and wellbeing.  For you, whether it’s a birthday party or a big event, this is a special day.

All of our packages are very interactive and we use positive praise and continuous interaction as a means of ensuring everyone has a good time.  We don’t simply stand in a corner and watch.

We keep small and large animals separate.  This works well for children who want to cuddle the smaller animals and take their time around the larger animals.  Also, the larger animals are not shy about taking food from the smaller animals if they are put together.

We have a genuine care for animals and do everything we can to protect them.  Some quick examples of which are putting our small animals in an air conditioned car for the journey; bringing extra animals on hot days so we can alternate them regularly; ensuring children are sat down before being handed an animal;  our cuddle bags for our small animals are very popular, to help keep the children and animals safe.

 “We had Barnyard Buddies – They were very professional  and well organised, they were able to interact with the children in a positive way. Their time management skills were great and they were quick at setting up and packing away and were friendly to approach.  I would recommend this company again as the children had tonnes of fun and enjoyed it. We will hopefully use Barnyard Buddies again throughout the year :) Thankyou again :)”  Bianca – Sanctuary Child Care
