Last Saturday while it was on/off bucketing with rain we decided to go on a lil adventure to Kiwi Valley Farm in Henderson - Typical Auckland weather and typical me not even packing proper rain gear...
Despite the weather and the kids being a little grumpy after having quick sleeps in the car before we got there, it was a super fun day out and we will be back. Entry costs are $13 for adults, $9 for kids 1-4Y and $15 for kids 5Y and up. There are also family deals. A little bit steep for when there is a few of you but you get your moneys worth.. Admission includes :
•1 animal food bag
•Unlimited horse and pony rides
•Maze with hidden caves
•Tractor rides (weather permitting)
They do have a cafe for all those mummies who love their coffee and they do yummy hot chips!! But there is also lots of grassy areas you can sit and eat your own food - so pack a picnic. There is also a pretty cool playground.
The kids had lots of fun petting and feeding the animals, going on pony rides and tractor rides. The animals were very used to people and would come right up to the fence, eat out of your hand or the food container and lots of them had open spaces in paddocks and their pens were clean and reasonably sized - for all those animal lovers.
All in all it was a fun day out and worthwhile checking out!!
