“If you have young kids don't miss this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

We had a wonderful family day out here - it's a shame there aren't more places like this around the country! Our son loved feeding and getting up close to the animals and really enjoyed his pony ride. The whole park is really nicely laid out and easy to get around. There were covered areas to pic-nic and there was a great playground for the kids. Would highly recommend to people with young children.

“What a cool place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

The kids loved it & it was the perfect time of year to visit - baby animals everywhere. The kids had great fun feeding the animals & bottle feeding the lambs. Well priced affordable outing for families.

“great day out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

different farm animals, park to play in, not expensive, great horse rides, only thing about it is, its not very big and the pony rides are very short if your children are used to horses

“Great Value for Money!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

This zoo, was excellent value for money, there were alot of farmyard animals. Ranging from Rabbits & Guinea Pigs through to Deer's & an Ostrich! I would definatly reccommend this to anyone in the Hawkes Bay area. At the shop there you can purchase food to hand feed the animals for only $1. You get to have a upclose experience with these animals.
