Only went for the Segway tour but had a look around while we was there. Could see this as being a great attraction for children as there is a lot of hands on animals. You can buy bags of feed to feed the birds and some animals. The Segway tour was awesome. Never been on one before but will again... More

Oh my goodness I had the best time here!! A bag of feed and send me on my way! I met rabbits (a big deal for this QLD'er where they're illegal to keep as pets), highland cattle, buffalo, pigs, donkeys, sheep, llamas, a very cheeky ostrich, emus, kangaroos and a few lambs.

This place is well worth the small fee! closeup animal feeding experience and petting, beautiful surrounds with a well setup venue, friendly staff, and great for a whole morning or afternoon. Something for every age with animals, segways, wine tasting, mini golf! Had a great time with the kids and grandparents too.
