If you've never been to a farm before then you'll probably love this place however it is pricey for what you get. The food however is great!!! more »
Just spent 5 nights with our caravan here with our 12 & 14 year old. They had a great time with all the animals and the shows. Amenities were prestige and clean. Food at the restaurant was amazing. Highly recommended.
This is a great place to go up close and interact with sheep, kangaroo, koalas, birds, ponies and cows. A wide variety of shows are available. Most of the shows are well made and entertaining. The Shaun the Sheep show is particularly entertaining for small kids. There are many Shaun the Sheep Easter eggs scattered across the park, which was pretty cool. The burgers and chips from the Farmhouse Restaurant were very tasty and fresh. I highly recommend them. Overall, this is a great laid-back park for animal-loving families to visit.
