We were on a day trip going through the Adelaide Hills and this was our first stop. My boys had a blast climbing up and down the horse and is only $2 each to enter. There are soooo many amazing wooden toys in the workshop...More

Seen plenty of 'Big' things around Australia, like the Big Banana at Coffs, Big Galah at Kimbah, Big Strawberry at Koonoomoo etc etc. Gumeracha's Big Rocking Horse is neither better nor worse than any of these, with one niggle I didn't like...asking $2 to climb...More

This place is overhyped and to be fair, just plainly boring. If you're a car enthusiast then you'll probably love it.

The Big Rocking Horse is a right of passage for all Radeladean children. Containing a few distinct attractions, ranging from the huge rocking horse to the toy shop and wildlife area, it offers a lot for kids to experience. Our kids loved feeding the animals,...More

We had 3 toddlers in tow and the highlight was the feeding of the animals in the enclosed area. Roos, geese, goats are very docile and used to human contact. There was a cafè on site and a store selling wooden toys.
