Where are we going today?
The Big Rocking Horse Toy Factory and Wildlife Park offers a full 7 acres wildlife park contains a variety of native animals such as red and grey kangeroos, Bennets wallabies, Swamp wallabies, Tamar wallabies and emu’s. We also have some farm animals such as goats, alpacas and sheep. The ponds are teeming with native and domestic ducks and geese. And best of all, entry is free! Animal food is sold in the shop, so you can hand feed the tame and friendly animals.
They do offer guided tours of the Wooden Toy Factory facility, where they talk about the timber and the various processes involved in making the toys. The tours are aimed at school age kids, and school and OSHC groups are welcome to book tours as part of the overall experience!
And off course there is the world’s biggest Rocking Horse! Climb to the top and get a certificate of completion, and enjoy the fantastic view from the Horse’s head. The first viewing platform can be reached by steps. However the next platform and the top of the head can only be reached by climbing a series of steel ladders. This means that all children MUST be supervised at all times!
