Awesome Place
Awesome place, every animal imaginable, great for families to visit for the day with a picnic lunch. Children can purchase a small bag of food to feed the animals. You can interact with the birds and have you photo taken.

Such A Cool Place!
Such a cool place! So much to see and do! Heaps of different animals and there's even a playground, a train ride and a mini putt course!

Super Place To Take Young Children
Super place to take young children. Great for adults too. The pigs wandering around are gorgeous and the playground is huge. All the animals were lovely and the cost made it very affordable. I would definitely come back for another visit.
