“Kids loved it”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

Kids loved the animals. Lovely scenic walk.

Only thing that seemed a bit silly was there was not a fully functional cafe to dine at. You drive all this way and want to spend a while there and it would have been nice to have a proper espresso and something nice to eat.

“Gorgeous lion cubs”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

The host at the desk was very friendly and helpful, what a cheerful person, she got us excited about being there even before we started the tour. Animals are just as friendly, goats, donkey, wallabies come right up to the fence to be fed by hand, which you are allowed to do with the food you buy at the desk. Heaps of trout, lovely bush walk and even got to pat the two lion cubs which was a once in a lifetime experience. My 11 yr old son loved it so did his mum & dad.

“Very small.... but the drive is beautiful”
Reviewed December 5, 2011

Drive is beautiful but the route doesnt have signboards guiding to it. Luckily I had GPS.
Not many animals but patting the lion cub was the reason for me going to it.
Otherwise nothing much.
