Amazement Farm & Fun Park is a lovely farm in the countryside where children can interact with farm animals.
Kids get up close with bunnies, ponies, chicken, goats and sheep. They also see alpacas and exotic birds.
Lots of fun things around the site at Amazement Farm & Fun Park keep little ones busy and excited. At Bunny Burrow you’ll hold a bunny, at Goat / Sheep Station feed sheep and goats and at Pony Palace groom ponies. Also, there are pony rides and horse and cart rides for an extra $5.
Besides, several other attractions at Amazement Farm & Fun Park are great for entertaining kids throughout the day: The hedges maze, small playground and various games around the site.
At our last visit, my son’s highlight was to hold a bunny for quite a long time at Bunny Burrow. For me it was to relax in a lovely farm atmosphere in the countryside. And of course to watch the delight in my son’s face when he got up close with the animals.
Kids love it.
You’ll be given this schedule below when you pay the
admission. You’ll get to pet the animals during these scheduled activities…
At Bunny Burrow, kids get to cuddle a bunny for quite a long time, about 20 - 30 minutes. Long enough for the kids to utterly fall in love with their bunny. Love with a big L…
Good luck explaining to them why you can’t bring the rabbit back home.
Bunny Burrow occurs twice a day at 11:00 am and 1:30 pm. Head to the bunny enclosure, sit on a chair and you’ll be handed out a lovely bunny to cuddle for the next 20+ minutes.
At Goat / Sheep Station kids get to feed sheep and goats…
Sheep and goats walk freely around people... it’s cute to watch the expression of delight in the children’s faces when the animals approach them.
There are some cute baby sheep and goats as well.
Feeding happens twice a day at 11:30 am and 2:00 pm. It lasts for about 20 - 30 minutes. Head to the sheep and goat enclosure and you’ll be given food pellets.
At Pony Palace Kids get to groom ponies. Pony Palace is at 12:00 and 2:30 pm.
And as I mentioned, kids can also ride a pony and a horse cart between 12:00 - 1:30 pm for an extra $5.
In addition to the animals I mentioned above, you’ll see others around the site at Amazement Farm & Fun Park...
There are lots of chickens in an enclosure. Others roam freely over the site.
Alpacas are kept in an area separate from the main site. You have to know they’re there otherwise they’re easy to miss.
You’ll also see beautiful large exotic birds.
And at the cafe there’s a fish tank and another large exotic bird. These are fun extras at Amazement Farm & Fun Park that keep kids interested.
In the hedges maze, which is just like a maze, you bump into dead ends and must find your way out.
The maze is a lot of fun for small kids, especially if they’re smaller than the top of the hedges because they can only see inside the maze.
Adults are taller than the hedges so you can have a bird-eye view of the maze.
Moreover, there’s a small playground beside covered picnic tables.
The playground is a cubby inside which kids climb to the top to get to a slide. The slide slides very fast and that’s the fun part of the playground according to my son.
Beside the playground is a cubby house and small bikes that toddlers / pre-schoolers can use.
It’s a great spot to have a picnic while your kids are playing around the playground.
Other fun games are scattered around the site. They’re great additions as they entertain the kids in between the animal visits.
The lawn bowling game is very popular…
There’s also a checker game on the site and wooden games on the tables at the cafe. We played noughts and crosses while waiting for our food…
Never a boring moment.
Amazement's Big Barn Café is located right beside the maze and the animal enclosures so you can easily walk back and forth to the cafe during the day if you need to.
The cafe is in a large country house with a verandah that overlooks the site at Amazement Farm & Fun Park. It’s very beautiful.
As I already said there are large covered picnic tables and barbecues so bring a picnic if you prefer.
