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!

Unfortunately when visiting this attraction I was feeling slightly nauseous owing too an over indulgence the previous evening, however, climbing up inside the rocking horse to enjoy the views was worthwhile. As the climb involves several steel ladders it would perhaps not be suitable for...More
