Had a lovely visit here. The owner was very passionate and informative about Alpacas, and we learnt a lot about them and Lamas. It was also a novelty to lead "Elly" the Alpaca around while on the tour. The owner advised us that October is when most of his Alpacas give birth, so I imagine this would be an exciting... More

We stumbled across this lovely farm, when looking for something to do in the bad weather. For an entry fee of only $20 for the family, the owner spent at least a good hour walking us around his farm, teaching the kids about the animals (pigs, llama, a range of birds, guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets etc.). The kids were allowed... More

One on one tour of a beautiful farm in West Ridgley, a short drive from Burnie. What a lifesaver! Not sure what to do with our 2 yr old and came across the park at the Burnie website. Our host, Phil, was a real character and provided a wonderful experience for the entire family. Well worth the trip and you... More

We visited Tasmania during a rather wet week June 2013, and despite the wet weather Phil obliged us and took us around his farm in a one-on-one tour. Fantastic set up, and well kept animals. The free roaming Guinea Pigs and Peter Rabbit was just a beautiful sight. We walked the pet Alpaca, Ally, who was a real darling, even... More

Small falls but looks beautiful. Good for family day picnic. When tourist travel from Craddle mountain to Burnie then they can spend sometime over here. It is really nice green place.

Took my daughter-in-law and 2 grandchildren. Warm greeting by Phil and Caroline. Caroline took us on a personal tour, explaining all the different types of animals. Grandchild (3) was able to lead a very quiet alpaca, very cute. The property is very clean and tidy, and well cared for. Other animals and a variety of birds to see, so a... More

This family owned business allows you to walk an alpaca around whilst you look at alpacas, llamas, birds and many other animals. Then after an hour of exploring have a cup of tea and look at the crafts. Nearby there's beautiful guide falls waterfalls which is worth looking at.
