Amazing place

Really good value for money and a great stop over to Tauranga from Auckland. Very interactive and our little boy could have stayed for hours.

Perfect for families

We are regular visitors here. Always so warm and welcoming. Plenty to do, it just feeding/petting the animals but little playgrounds, nice bush walk and even some little race tracks. Highly recommend

Great Experience

Our son (nearly 4yrs old) loved the experience! As well as feeding the different animals, there was lots of activities to do as well. Eels and ladders was super fun! There was plenty of food in the one bucket we got aswell. Would definitely come again :)
