I enjoyed this so much, a lovely experience - not too many tourists and plenty of animals. Gorgeous cafe, a real authentic experience. Do not feed the pigs by hand though - we learnt the hard way!!

We took our three year old out to have birthday party out there and it was fantastic fun for them. So much wildlife to interact with for kids, and it was pretty non threatening for the kids - nothing to get too scared of. It's a bit of a mission to get to, but worth it.
