The Animalarium is a collection of farm and domestic pets, many of which have been rescued or rehomed. We offer an up close and personal experience, where you can pet and feed most of the animals here.

Six days a year we are also able to open our exotic collection which includes reptiles, wallabies, emus, racoon dogs, silver foxes, palm civets and rhea. Dates and details for these very special days will be advertised on our website.

We also have outside play areas and animal handling sessions that are available daily.

Our cafe is open every day.

Because the welfare of the animals is foremost, the Park reserve the right to change, alter or withdraw attractions or events in their daily programme without prior notice.
