We are Changing…but in a good way!

We've come a long way in the 47 years that we've been open. There have been lots of great changes along the way and our latest plans are set to be the best yet. If you've paid us a visit during the school holidays you will probably have noticed that we've out grown our current visitor centre. The shop is too cramped to browse with a buggy and the cafe is creaking at the seams during a busy lunch time. The planned development and refurbishment is set to double the size of the shop and offer 3 times as much seating in the cafe. With panoramic views of the countryside, courtyard dining and fresh food prepared from local ingredients,...

We’ve held our first Outdoor Cinema event!

Last Wednesday, we held two Outdoor Cinema events with the help of The Alfresco Film Company. Fortunately the weather was on our side and it was lovely day, with the movies being displayed against the backdrop of stunning rolling hills and beautiful countryside. We kicked off the afternoon with the always popular family favourite, The Lion King. We were joined by the fabulous singing duo, Remix who performed a selection of Disney and Pop tunes to entertain the crowd before the film started. There was also face painting for the little ones. Once the sun went down, the fairy lights came on for the incredibly popular and Golden G...

It’s heating up on the farm!

It’s hot. In fact it’s very hot! The summer heatwave means we’re seeing lots of sun cream, wide-brimmed hats and ice-creams around the Farm Park at the moment. There are plenty of ways for our visitors to stay cool and safe in the sun and similarly the Farm Park staff are making sure the animals are calm and comfortable too. Just like us, livestock need shade and water when the temperatures rise. In the paddocks there are shady spots which the animals will seek out for themselves as soon as the air begins to warm and their water troughs are getting topped up throughout the day. There are other similarities between humans and farm an...
