  • This is a safe, somewhat confined, place to let children under age 10 run and play and feed the birds. Paths are marshy, so wear gumboots or water proof foot gear. The bird species were fairly mundane...  more »

  • A lovely place to visit with grandson. Paths not great for pushchairs. All just a little run down and tatty. Nice enough collection of birds in picturesque grounds with picnic spots and wedding photo ...  more »

  • I do love taking my kiddies here there's lots of birds and water. Water is not fenced so watch ur little ones carefully. There's a park to play and a cafe there, this place is a bit over priced for what it is. You can purchase bird food for $1.00 which is fun.
  • Be prepared for extremely friendly birds looking for food! They will come from all corners of the garden to greet you. Beautiful if it is a sunny day
  • Great day out with the grandchildren. Beautiful gardens, wonderful birds and all round great experience. Will do it again.
  • A nice way to spend some time with the kids. The tree house was a hit. The food at the cafe is great. Try the waffles. The number of chickens running about detract from the interesting birds though.
  • Great place to spend a big chunk of the day with kids. The gardens are rambling old English not formal English but suit the place.
