“Best of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2014

This place was truly awesome! I spent two weeks here and it was one of the best moment in my life. You got to meet a lot of animals, which they are all friendly, you can play with them and even feed them from your hand. The bird park was simply amazing! The birds were beautiful and looked after really well. I have to admit I've fallen in love with some of the birds! :) Kids can come along with no problems at all, they can play with the friendly birds and animals there. Not to mention, get a cool train ride! In addition with the hospitality that you get from the owners, Fred and Gaye, you will truly enjoy your visit. All in all, the beauty of this place can't be captured by words. Definitely worth a visit!!!
