I went to the Fairy Park when I was a child and I took my daughter there. As a child, she loved it and thought that following the path was fun and the play park outside was terrific. But....some of the puppets limbs were falling off, eyes popping out, cobwebs everywhere. Even though it bought back childhood memories, it needs a spruce up and a coat of paint.

We took our 2 year old here and he really loved it. There is a bbq area outside in the car park area along with a fast food van. You take the main path in and follow it around looking at all the different sets of fairy tales. Its very oldy worldy but this gives it a nice atmosphere and appeal. Some of the displays are quite old and some are really pretty looking such as the Dragon. My sons favourite part was the indoor model train set! The playground was also very good and all the kids seemed to be enjoying themselves. I would recommend taking your own food as the fast food van has very limited choice. A good day out.

Had a family reunion here and it was fantastic. Quite steep but there are rails and good paths for prams etc. walk around and view all the fairy tales In little houses with music etc. fantastic playground at the end too and a lovely model train display. We paid the extra for a BBQ under cover area and this was good value for elderly parents etc. entry is $16 for adults and $8 for kids and we stayed all day. Drive from city is just over an hour. Very clean, happy place for whole family

We have visited the fairy park on a number of occasions, it is very clever and creative and the playground is a must do! Disappointing to see the cafe at the top has closed down. Still a lovely place to visit but no decent food available there.

Went there on the weekend with my 3 year old and the little one (whos still in a pram). There was only one path around which was great - you follow it up and you follow it down. The attractions all worked and did entertain my kid quite a bit.
The playground at the end was a ton of fun and we stayed there for around an hour. My suggestions for improvement would be:
- You should have a wider selection of food there - we drove over an hour to get there and ended up eating sandwiches. Theres only a cafeteria and one overpriced food van.
- You should get some staff walking around - better if they were dressed up - the kids would love that
- Perhaps some areas where you can walk in and look at attractions - like snow whites house perhaps.
Not something I would do again anytime soon - but worth the visit.
