Tick off an essential kiwi adventure as you experience typical rural farm life at the beautiful Bullswool Farm Park...
Bullswool Farm is a slice of Kiwi paradise and a must-do for those wanting to experience typical Kiwi rural farm life.
Perfectly positioned just minutes from the famous Karangahake Gorge walking tracks and set amongst wild and beautiful landscapes with stunning views, this unique working farm is the perfect way to disconnect in the peace and tranquility of nature.
You'll get to meet many rare-breed farm animals which include; miniature horses, emus, goats, alpacas, llamas, deer, paint horses, kune-kune pigs, miniature cattle, rabbits, rare breed chickens, ducks, pheasants, coloured sheep and donkeys. All the animals are friendly and well-cared for so you can get right up close and hand-feed them - even the biggest animals!
The kids will absolutely love the play area, with wooden play structures built by award-winning sculptor, Tony Howse. When you feel like exploring, there are many walkways to roam at your leisure offering amazing farmland and bush views, or you can check out the native bird reserve and the Gold & Kauri Museum.
To top it all off, why not bring lunch and enjoy it at one of the several picnic areas? There really is something for everyone!
Opening Hours: Open from 10am - 4pm.
Location: Bullswool Farm, 240 Rahu Rd, RD4, Karangahake Gorge, Paeroa.

We are an attraction that caters for all age groups, which happens be an excellent facility for children. However, we have lots of adults without children visit us, who enjoy the farm animals, beautiful setting, Native Bird reserve, and our museums. We also have lots of adults who bring their children, and choose to fully experience the farm themselves, and participate in all that is on offer, rather than just "watching over" them. Farm parks are labour intensive and expensive to run, and while you might regard our admission price "needlessly expensive", we couldn't possibly cover our operating costs if we only charged $5 per adult. We think we offer fantastic value for money. There are only a handful of visitor attractions in surrounding regions - Auckland, Waikato and Rotorua, where visitors can occupy themselves for 3+ hours. We are one of those few attactions, and to the best of our knowledge, we are the also the cheapest.
