Garden Scarecrow – Churchill Island Historic Gardens

Featured in Retired and Happy and Country Bumpkin

The definition of a Scarecrow is a decoy or mannequin in the shape of a human which is dressed in old clothes and placed in fields to discourage birds such as crows or sparrows from disturbing and feeding on recently cast seed and growing crops.

Churchill Island Heritage Farm covers 57 hectares and boasts an historic working farm with ‘hands on’ farming demonstrations reminiscent of a bygone era. Sheep shearing, cow milking, blacksmithing and working dog demonstrations.

Churchill Island Heritage Farm has been continuously farmed and in 1872 when Samuel Amess, former Mayor of Melbourne, purchased the island for both holiday and farming use, he built a substantial house and outbuildings. The historical buildings and remnants of historical gardens are now a draw-card for tens of thousands of visitors a year.

Churchill Island Historic Gardens, Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia.
