This animal park has its own character, do cares for the wellbeing of animals. Can't resist to see the wombat, alpaca, kangaroo & wallabies, as well as the chance to feed and interact with them in a stress free environment. There are still many other types on the list such as koala, pigs, the funny donkey, dingos, parrots & other... More

Great morning ending with some wine tasting. Couple of birthday parties going on at the same time which looked like fun. Kids would have loved it. Good petting zoo... More

Only went for the Segway tour but had a look around while we was there. Could see this as being a great attraction for children as there is a lot of hands on animals. You can buy bags of feed to feed the birds and some animals. The Segway tour was awesome. Never been on one before but will again... More
