New Zealand Native Wildlife

For the little ones (and hands-on adults as well), you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in with some of New Zealand’s native wildlife, including pigs, thar, deer and wallabies. Have a go at hand-feeding too!

Streamside Farm Walk

You can also take the streamside farm walk and encounter alpacas, sheep and goats along the way. The streams and ponds throughout the park are also teaming with brown trout. You may also want to stop and taste some of the pure spring water, straight from the spring! The next best thing would be to purchase some bottled spring water to take with you.
