What a great family day out! I don't think that our children (10, 8 and 2 years old) stopped smiling all day. Lots to do and see and very interactive. A great way to share some special experiences with your children.

Yes you can feed the Kangaroos but not the Wombats and Koalas as they on a special diet. We also have a huge range of other animals you can feed including, Lambs, goats, ponies and our camel to names a few.
