    Really enjoyed our visit to the farm... my 10 year old son laughed and smiled throughout. 3 bags of food given on way in to feed the animals, who are very friendly. Plenty of animals to feed and pet...goats, emu's, geese, donkey, various chick's, got to cuddle rabbits. Also monkeys, llamas, deer, wallabies and more. Plenty of shelter so no need to worry about rain...we had torrential showers. Lots of great play area's indoor and outdoor. Coffee shop. Highly recommend and would return. We spend 2.5hrs there but could have stayed all day.

    Very knowledgeable guide who gave loads of information about local walks etc.
    Test you strength and lift a sword. Lots of games for the younger ones and interactive information.

    The gallery is located on the river and the light pouring in through the glass lined corridor is stunning in itself.

    The gallery features different local artists and is well worth a visit. Some beautiful thought provoking pieces on display.

    Their is currently no admission charge.

    Didn’t go inside the church, but it’s gorgeous from outside and has a lovely garden behind and there’s an old burial ground opposite.

    Very interesting. It's a mark of respect to the men of A company 35th Battalion who fought for the UN in the Congo against enormous odds. They held out from the 13th to the 17th September 1961.

    They were then imprisoned and having survived all the above they then came home to a nation that only just recently honoured their efforts.

    To go I'd advise phoning ahead, the memorial is in a working military base.

    Really worth a visit. It's simplicity, it's setting, really respectful.
