Arrived in our campervan expecting some sort of campground. We paid for a powered site and was told to park up next to a building and they’d throw a power cord through the window for us. Shower and toilet was unwelcoming and you had to pay $2 for a three minute shower! We paid $33.00 for the night which seems pretty costly for the most basic of stays. I didn’t mind however as I had read that all of their profit goes to feeding their animals. Most of the people there were friendly but one older gentleman just stared at us while he sat on his quad bike, it was like he had never seen people before. The most upsetting thing though was seeing the birds in tiny enclosures. It doesn’t matter if an animal welfare group has said the cages are adequate. The fact of the matter is these birds should be able to fly around their enclosure and that is not possible. It is also deceiving to use the word “sanctuary” which implies they have rescued the animals there. Nowhere on their website does it mention in any more detail how they are a sanctuary and it seems much more that they just keep animals in confinement and only get them out for entertainment purposes/money making opportunities.I sent a friendly email last week enquiring about the birds/their back story and have heard nothing since. I wanted to give them the opportunity to explain and ease my concerns but sadly nobody got back to me.

For starters they need a separate page for the accommodation side of the business, the restaurant and the animal park. I only experienced the animal park and it was hands down one of the most enjoyable tourism experiences I've had in all of my travels around the world. Part of the reason is that it's incredibly authentic, and part of a working farm (I think!). I thought it would only be farm animals - but there was a STUNNING array of birds from all around the world which I wasn't expecting - as well as some foreign animals which is was so incredible to see up close and personal (not like a zoo!) Being able to pat and feed animals was also a lovely experience. From what I understand these guys opened not long before all of the covid stuff, so I can't wait to return in the future once they have gone from strength to strength. People in the area raved about the food too but I didn't get a chance to have a meal. The museum is also really well done! Thankfully I am local so I get to return in the future!

Now here was a sensational find. Hidden behind the colourbond fencing are enclosures of rescued animals that would rival more famous zoos. Run by Julie and Chris, and boasting a museum of local history significance excellently preserved and presented + a restaurant with chef Grant that serves up food you might expect in Salamanca Place ! Give this venue the time, support and financial contribution it deserves..

We ate here on the recommendation from our motel. Good range of local produce especially seafood. We had Salmon and Squid dishes. Very good service and prompt arrival of meals. Nothing wrong with the meals, a good size, but a little tasteless and quite expensive. Few other options in the area so it may just be lack of competition, but not a "memorable, let's go back again" experience.
