Kids really enjoyed getting up close to the 1 week old piglets,catching eels in the creek and feeding the animals.. Plenty of shade and things to see and do. A great place to visit

We loved the cuddles with the 9 day old piglets. The children enjoyed the sandpit and ice cream. Unfortunately it was unbelievably windy which made us not want to spend a huge amount of time there. Be prepared to walk some distance.
