We took our 18 month old to meet some animals, although the weather was freezing we had a great time walking around the paddocks feeding goats, sheep, baby goats followed us around it made our little ones day. Then we got to the barn where children can pat and cuddle animals watch out for the piglets they love shoelaces! Our little one just loved the baby goats, rabbits and more baby goats! Will definately return as the kids actually get to go in and touch the animals. Show is great for older kids! seems very interesting and interactive!

I took my 3 year old here a few weeks ago. She really enjoyed feeding the animals and watching the stage show. Holding the rabbits and patting the lambs was her favourite thing to do. She was hesitant about milking a cow. The older kids were right into it. About and hour was all the she needed. Im sure older kids would last longer. Just beware of the emus, they will take the food out of the kids hands and they can reach a fair way.
