Hello and Welcome to Mini Mates Miniature Horse and Pony Farm!

Mini Mates was established in 1990 and what started out as a Hobby Farm for breeding small ponies and Miniature horses soon turned out to be one of Brisbane's most talked about children's farm visits for Birthday Parties, Horse Riding, Playgroups, School Excursions, and School Holiday Farm Days. Over the last years of operation, we have made Television appearances on Great South East , Talk to the Animals with Dr Harry, Brisbane Extra, and Totally Wild.

Mini Mates operates Birthday parties every Saturday and Sunday, Pony Rides and Group appointments by appointment only.

Our farm consists of the Round Yard - where our led Pony rides are held. Connected to the round yard is our main barn, this is where children have the opportunity to feed, brush, and pat the Ponies. Next to this area we have our second barn, this is the location we use in case of wet weather.

Our covered eating area has plenty of seating and tables for parties, and room for the adults to sit and relax, with a lovely view of the rest of our farm, out to the lake, gazebo and field for the Ponies.

Mini Mates provides picturesque photo opportunities to keep some amazing memories of your family. Surrounded by trees and landscaping, Mini Mates provides a true and exciting Farm experience for the children and adults alike.
