It is so exciting to see the animals and visit with them. This is a nice little farm that the children can learn about animals (children of all ages, that is...). They not only have their own animals but also borrow some from zoos and other farms so that you can have a variety of animals to view. You can't beat the price, either. It's FREE. Easy to walk to from the Ferry and/or from the Hotels that are close to the location...
Located at the back of the hotel at the end of the main street in old town, this small free local anmial display is worth a visit if you are in the area. It features camels, kangaroos and other surprises, in a clean, spacious, up close and personal environment. Animals are sourced from the SPCA and other groups worth supporting. If you have children, it might even be worth going out of your way!
Before I give my review, I would like to say that I am not a huge fan of animal farms nor do I have children. However, we visited the farm because we stayed at the hotel associated with this farm, the Hotel Manisses (which is a wonderful place to stay). I do not think of this farm as a tourist destination, but a nice place to stop if you are staying at an inn/hotel in the area. There are llamas, cattle, bulls, chickens, goats, sheep, camels, and kangaroos. They are just all lounging in the same large pen. And while they look well taken care of and happy, you can not do anything but look at them. They do not get close enough to pet, and some are not even accessible. There are no pellets to feed the animals, and it really is not suggested anyway. The interesting thing that they did have were posted sheets with a picture, name, and information/origin of each animal. This attraction is free.
