Owner description: Tame Flemish Giant rabbits roam free on our course; you compete against living obstacles on the greens! Native New Zealand birdlife and ring-necked doves make their homes in our trees and our resident Rainbow Lorikeet serenades you while you play. Waterfalls cascade into glistening ponds full of a variety of goldfish. Mini Golf at night is a whole new ball game! Our course transforms into a magical wonderland amidst thousands of twinkling lights. Fog machines, laser lights, bubbles and great music all add to the evening. Bring your own ‘fish n chips’ and treat the family to a special and unique night out. It’s the perfect spot for a romantic date, or a fun night out with your friends. Always wanted to drive the Bathurst racetrack? Now you can! Fitted out like a real race car, complete with full roll cage and race seats that move for more sensation, our V8 Simulator offers an incredibly realistic drive of the Mt. Panorama racetrack.

“Good family fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

The minigolf is pretty fun. After reading some of the previous reviews we were a bit concerned if the golf area is really dirty but it's actually not too bad consider it's outdoor with animals running/flying around.

Overall it's a good and cheap fun activity for both adults and little ones.

“Mini golf easy but OK, car simulator terrible!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

The mini golf was OK, but could have done with a clean of the course in some areas. The rabbits leave behind a mess on the course and some courses are under trees so there is a lot of debris. Other than that the mini golf was nice, but maybe a little easy.

The car simulator was definitely a waste of money though. We paid for two but after my partners go we asked for our money back for the second ticket.

“Need more maintenance... ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013 via mobile

My girl friend and I was here today to have some relaxing and fun time together. We played the 18 holes but the golf areas wasn't clean so very hard to shoot straight and also very rough surface.

We did the combo for 25$

I was the first one in the simulation and my girlfriend as passenger.
I have never tried anything that bad before and i have done lots of simulators.

I asked for a refund but only got it for my girlfriend.

Thank Kjeldstrup

The golf is fun but not very hard! There's lovely bunny rabbits hopping about! I do not recommend the car "simulator" at the entrance though, it's rubbish and a waste of money!
