Animal Farm - Visit our modern, interactive, family-oriented farm park!
At the Animal Farm, you'll enjoy a variety of hands-on activities including bottle feeding (in season), llama walking, donkey riding, catching and releasing native crayfish, and much more. In the petting area, you can stroke the friendly goats, sheep, pigs, donkeys and mini horses - plus there are lots of rabbits and guinea pigs to cuddle.
When you visit Animal Farm, you'll meet a wide range of very friendly farm animals including rare breeds from New Zealand and around the world. You'll love feeding them - and they love to be fed. They all love attention!
There's always something happening at Animal Farm! Join an activity, wander at your leisure, relax and enjoy your surroundings, or do a combination. You're welcome to bring your own picnic, or you can order lunch, snacks and drinks from our cart.
There's always something new to see and do at Animal Farm. We're constantly working on ways to make your visit even more fun - and our range of events, activities, themed days, changing breeds and new baby animals means that no two visits are ever the same. That's why having an annual pass comes in handy.
We're passionate about giving children outdoor learning experiences and enjoy working with school and preschool groups to enhance children’s education.
We feel it's very important to save rare animal breeds, and are members of the New Zealand Rare Breeds Conservation Society. Alongside the farm park, we run a 45-hectare farm that's focused on breeding many of the animals you'll see at the park.
And don't forget to stay current with changes at Animal Farm. If you want to be informed of new events, check the What's on page, on our website, follow us on Facebook or contact us.
We proudly claim to be New Zealand’s ultimate hands-on farm experience, and look forward to sharing the farm with you!
