Farm Park containing typical New Zealand farm animals. Great addition when spending time at Roselands for children to stretch their legs and burn off built up energy from travelling. The farm is purposely low-stocked so the animals don't learn bad habits from having to push in to be hand-fed. Making a very safe environment for young children or people with little experience with farm animals. Free Farm Entry with BBQ Buffet Lunch purchase. Normal retail $7 per Adult, $3 per Child.

Located on top of a hill in the country above the Waitomo Glow worm cave, this is a pleasant lunch spot created by local farmers. It's a barbecue of fish, chicken or beef, but they also offer mussels--go figure. Good food with an ample salad...More
