For animal lovers of all ages
Hanmer Springs Animal Park
Hanmer Springs Animal Park is a must-see for animal lovers young and old. Set on six hectares, the park is just a 10-minute walk from the centre of the village.
The purpose-built farm park allows you to hand-feed a range of farm and exotic animals including sheep and lambs, goats, pigs, ponies, donkeys, llamas and alpacas, cows, a Texas longhorn, ostrich, emu, wallaby, water buffalo and deer and wallabies.
There are also ducks, geese, chickens, guinea pigs, chinchillas and giant Flemish rabbits – Dr Dolittle would be proud!
With trampolines and outdoor picnic tables, tea, coffee, light lunch and snacks, it’s the perfect place to spend the day surrounded by furry friends.
And don’t forget to say hi to ostriches Winston and Jacinda while you’re there!
