Really enjoyed our visit although a trifle expensive for a large group.The kids loved the animals. As an accountant I’m bit concerned that they only take cash and don’t provide tickets or receipts unless requested. Not much of an audit trail!

Fabulous place to visit with children. Lots to do and see. Only downside was cafe which was very limited but may have been because we went mid week. Very impressed with range of activities and would definitely visit again when we’re in the area
