Dad and Miss 7 visited the Macadamia Castle this week and were very pleasantly surprised with a really fun afternoon out together.
Do you drive past the signs to this place all the time and say “We’ll have to pop in there one day……..” Well make these school holidays THAT day cause it’s got LOTS on offer for the whole family.
The Macadamia Castle is situated on 6 acres of beautiful grounds. There’s mini golf, train ride, tree house playground and our highlight the animal farm, where you can pat kangaroos, feed lorikeets, watch free flight bird show, learn about night creepers in the nocturnal theatre, cuddle a baby croc, check out the frog pod and lots more!
