  • What a lot of fun we got to pat and feed the alpacas, lambs, sheep and the most adorable goats I have ever seen. Well worth the trip there is a walk through pointing out the history of the mill which ...  more »
  • The public area is in the process of renovation and modernisation. Despite that it was a worthwhile visit. We were greeted just inside by 3 kids (goats) and then proceeded on a brilliant self guided t...  more »

  • Animals were great fun. Garden in Chinese is written action, breath, tree of life, tree of Knowledge, man, and out of side of man, woman. Genesis in pictographs.
  • Best thing to do here: see & feed the alpacas. Not so great: the goats and sheep that literally shove the alpacas out of the way so they can be fed. The alpacas are seriously the cutest, and nicest animals you can ever meet, plus they now have a covered area for visitors to feed them alpacas. Their shop sells a wide range of clothing and apparel, and quilts and other things. On the expensive side of the spectrum, but worth the quality. There is a cafe here, looks alright. It can get busy, very busy if there are (Chinese) tours that stop by here, so its best to visit when it isnt peak season, and during weekdays.
  • Kids loved the animals. Staff very friendly. Great australian made quality items. So more then happy to purchase.
  • Well laid out , good explanation of machine workings, final product expensive but top quality
  • Good display of how the products are made, but the information could have been better. I found it interesting to see how to commercial production worked as a home spinner, but suspect that without that knowledge the displays would not have meant much.
