This weekend we took a family trip across to Altina Wildlife Park just outside of Darlington Point. We had booked into the 1pm tour so we took our time getting ready at home and started the journey from my parents house just an hour away. The wind was freezing with rain on the way but we were all rugged and comfortable and nothing could dampen the kids spirits.
The tour via horse carriage went for 2.5 hours and was absolutely packed with so many animals to see. The park was huge and all of the animals came up so close and were all in big, clean, well maintained paddocks just like you would find them if you had seen them in the wild. We are a bit of a expert on zoos and wildlife parks having lived all over the country and visited most of the australian ones but Altina takes the cake it really was fantastic for everyone from babies to the grandparents, just awesome.
We arrived home just before dark. Absolutely exhausted but totally satisfied. I bet my kids would happily jump in the car and go again tomorrow.
