    Came for lunch, so glad we did. I had the calamari burger with aioli on sour dough. It was the nicest tasting burger I have had in a very very long time! My daughter had the special, blueberry pancake...  more »

    We stopped here for lunch-afternoon tea and to sample the delicious pancakes. One should be warned to go hungry. These pancakes are huge and there are three of them. We shared one serving and walked a...  more »

    Grabbed coffee and breakfast here and it was great, with mountains of bacon. Coffee was good. Service was friendly and helpful. I haven't been there for 20 years and it was still as good as always. Lo...  more »

  • Nice staff. Lots to buy. Cool theme. Basic kids animal park. Bit pricey. Hot food. Local produce. Great picture next to the giant Knight outside. Can't hold a koala :( saw goats though...
  • Had amazing pancakes at the cafe! I would definitely recommend but be prepared the portions are huge! Definitely a great value for the money. Also check out the flavoured macadamia nuts. The garlic are my husband favourite.
  • Didn't go into the actual zoo, although went through the gift shop. Cool novelty gifts and treats. There were fresh roasted macadamia nuts for sale. Got a bag of the wasabi, honey and lime pepper ones. Delicious! The place seems a little run down, but maybe that's the actual look that they are going for (Medieval style).
  • Don't waste your money. We came here last week and were extremely disappointed. It cost $55 for me, my husband and our three year old to do something that basically took about ten minutes to look at and experience the attractions. It was a rainy day and we asked the guy on the desk if there was a reasonable amount of cover. He assured us there was, but it was basically completely open air. We got soaked (umbrellas were supplied which was great, but it was still full of puddles and rain blowing everywhere). The attractions consist of a few miserable looking animals in tiny pens or cages. Helping feed the animals took a couple of minutes max, which is not helpful for any families with small children who love to do that kind of activity (it is done as a timed activity at certain times of the day so you can't just go and do that or pat animals whenever you want to). The train ride they make you pay an extra $2 for each and all that it does is ride you around on a cart a few times in a circle around a few of the exhibits while exhaust blows in your face. The mini golf was pretty basic. The whole place is staffed by unfriendly teenagers. If the entry fee had been about $5 or $10 I wouldn't have felt so ripped off but as it was, it was all we could do to stay there for an hour and a half to try to get some value for money. The playgrounds were all under water. Our daughter couldn't use any of them. It would have taken about five or ten minutes to do the whole place, really not worth the money. There are so many wonderful things to do in this region, seriously don't waste your money on this. As my husband said when we were leaving, the only thing missing from the Macadamia Castle was a moat to throw everything in the said castle in on the way out.
  • Free Supercharging. Interesting and fun place for kids. Mention that your are supercharging and you can going in for a look around before continuing on trip.
