We are unable to accept bookings for commercial activities or exclusive use of any one area. Please note that we do have guidelines for events held in the park - for example, nothing is to be pegged into the ground or tied/stapled to trees.
Farm Animals & Wildlife
For their protection and yours, please do not approach or touch any of the animals, particularly during lambing/calving season. Remember this is a working farm! See See & Do.
Dogs are welcome in the park, but must be on a lead at all times. This is vital to protect our animals. During lambing and calving season we also do not allow dogs in certain areas, which will be signposted and displayed on Park Updates.
Trails & Paths
There are trails and paths to explore throughout the park, which are marked on the map. Most pathways are easy and do not require advanced levels of fitness. The eastern side of the park is more accessible. See See & Do or download a PDF map above.
BBQs are available free for use on a first come, first served basis. Gas and wood are provided, you’ll just need matches or kindling to get the fire going. Please show respect for those waiting, and clean the BBQ and surrounding area after use. You’re welcome to bring your own portable gas BBQ (no charcoal or coal allowed), but these must be on legs and positioned away from the trees. Download a pdf park map for bbq locations.
You are more than welcome to bring your own food and drink into the park and set up a picnic for a moment or the whole day.

Please note that we do have guidelines for picnics held in the park - please be aware that you are able to bring one 3x3m gazebo per group but please use weights, we do not allow pegs to be used.
