The children (9 and 3) enjoyed their visit, as anything with animals always delights. HOWEVER, the adults were horrified. The place stank of animal poo. The exotic birds were caged in such a miserable environment - only a bare branch to perch on if they were lucky. No greenery, no stimulation - nothing! The place was just so depressing - soulless and desolate. We were very tempted to report it to the SPCA. Still might. They should visit the Bulls Wool Heritage Park in Karangahake for a lesson on how it should be done.

Was looking up things to do in Whitianga with 2 kids under 10.
Such a good price for what you see. It was great and the kids loved it.
Highly recommend.

Another wonderful holiday at Mill Creek. Now with 4 children to entertain, it beats any campground hands down. Waking up to the sounds of the birds tweeting is magic.
Hot showers, kitchen with fridges for your food. No need for ice and chilly bins.
The owners, Fred and Gaye, are so lovely!
We stayed for almost 3 weeks this year and if the kids didn't have to go back to work, we would still be there.
Take your kids, take your partner. You can camp or grab a cabin. Neither will break the bank.
Enjoy the serenity that is Mill Creek.
As I write this and listen to the construction outside, I wish we were still there !

My 8 year old son and I stayed for a weekend and had a great time exploring the grounds with all the bird and farm animal life! The animals are all well cared for and the accommodation facilities excellent. The family who run this place are friendly and helpful. Highly recommend for a family adventure - the river is just across the road for Swimming too. 5 stars ⭐️

Wow! This place is so much fun!
We arrived after it had been raining so of course no one else was crazy enough to go to an animal park - but I’m so glad we did!

We had the whole park to ourselves. It was a treat! We had a good look at everything and our daughter couldn’t stop looking at everything there! All the animals were very visible which is always a bonus.

Now the ducks are something else! At first there was one who welcomed us waddling over to greet my daughter who couldn’t believe a duck actually came up to her (the food helps) Then we had a group of 5 ducks follow us around the rest of the way.

This park has everything and the two adults and 1 year old all had a blast even under poor weather conditions!

Me and my partner enjoyed our time here! Amazing animals and birds experience. I thought it was only good for families with kids but I was wrong - my inner child was super happy and excited!
