This is a park for young children. It has animals and a train ride and old farm machinery to climb on etc. There is a nice cafe and restaurant as well

Plenty of activities for youngsters - farm animals, clams, mules, etc. plus good playground for youngness in a safe environment - and the miniature train ride!! Also a mecca for horse riding in the equestrian circle. Plenty for oldies to enjoy - cafe, tavern and restaurant.

This is a great little spot to stop if you are looking for a coffee or a beer, for high end art or local crafts. There is a playground that was very popular with children when I visited today and a couple of families were enjoying the farm park area which has a great assortment of animals including donkeys, llamas and pigs. After a look around the Art Gallery I had a delicious cup of coffee and a very indulgent ginger slice at the cafe. Yesterday afternoon I enjoyed a glass of wine with family at Smiths bar and thought we must come back again!

Great play area, cafe and free animal park. Lovely art Gallery with New Zealand Artists.

Resturant opens after 4pm so don't go for lunch.
