Take a stroll along the raised walkway past the landscaped waterfall and gardens to view the birds on display. Some of the varieties on display include Major Mitchell and Red Tailed Black cockatoos.

An added attraction is the full-sized adult animatronic Triceratops dinosaur and baby Triceratops and T-Rex dinosaurs. Children will enjoy the fossil dig table and the timber maze. Find the three stamps in the maze to win a small prize. There is also an outdoor picnic area next to the maze.

Fish food is available to feed the rainbow trout and ducks in the lake.

The café serves all-day cake and coffee. Ice creams, hot chips and nuggets, wedges, pies and sausage rolls and cold drinks are also available. The outdoor deck provides an opportunity to get up close to the native birds in the area and listen to the waterfall in the background.

The Gift Shop stocks a large range of souvenirs to choose from.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
