Children can let off steam exploring the real, life-sized fire engine and there's also a fun-packed adventure playground, with a real tractor and a giant sand pit with water features.
There are regular feeding times throughout the day, at weekends and during the school holidays, for the otters, meerkats, monkeys, ringtailed lemurs, rabbits, guinea pigs, pigs and coati. There are often feed time talks where children can find out the animals' names and some of their curious habits. There are special events all year round, such as Snake Days, Hedgehog Adventures and other animal-themed activity days.
