Emu Logic


Emu Logic is a working emu farm that has a farm shop that you can buy emu oil, meat, eggs and other emu products. You also have an opportunity to take a tour of the farm and meet the emus and learn about these wonderful birds.

Located just 15 minutes from the Warrumbungle National Park or Tooraweenah on the scenic road from Dubbo/Gilgandra to Coonabarabran.
