Hi, I am sorry for your less pleasant experiences when coming to visit us later in the day. It is totally unacceptable and will be addressed with the staff involved.

The drive here alone is worth it. We went with our young children because they wanted to climb the rocking horse. All the activities were cheap to do and the cafe was very family friendly. The kids were well occupied during our visit. You could...More

Lovely animal farm where you can hand-feed the local birds, alpacas, kangaroos & wallabies. Toy factory & the giant rocking horse worth a short visit as well. Watch out for the ibises!

Seen plenty of 'Big' things around Australia, like the Big Banana at Coffs, Big Galah at Kimbah, Big Strawberry at Koonoomoo etc etc. Gumeracha's Big Rocking Horse is neither better nor worse than any of these, with one niggle I didn't like...asking $2 to climb...More

I can understand the appeal of this place. There's not many places left that don't charge a fortune for entry. It costs $1pp to visit the animals and $2pp to climb the horse. The animal park is a bit tired and grotty, but the kids...More
