This place is amazing. Its set in the bush, so you have nature all around you, including the river/stream, rocks for kids to explore, ponds full of birdlife..... so beautiful, and great photo opportunities. The farm animals are friendly and the little pigs that roam around are too adorable. My boys loved being able to cuddle bunnies, and we all enjoyed walking through the historic buildings and seeing the old tools. The goats were too funny, jumping and walking along the tops of fences!! Cafe was a nice spot to rest and grab a coffee. Boys loved the swing bridge. Can easily spend half a day here, if not most of the day. Highly recommend visiting this place.
Attended a birthday party here yesterday in a roo. At the end of the cafe - great party highchairs provided for my two boys and lovely staff. The drive is slightly daunting and although it's only about 20km from Upper Hutt allow plenty of time and take it easy is a beautiful drive with some tight turns!
My favourite place to go! I generally go atleast once a year. You can purchase food for the animals and trout as well as marshmellows to cook on the fire. Beautiful place. They also have a free tractor ride that goes through a river! . Great for kids or any animal lover. Springs the best time to go because of all the new baby animals. They have a cafe but you can also bring your own picnic. Careful in the deer park. The goats try to take your bag of food. A fun outing to spend hours!.
Animals youll see: ducks. Swans. Kia. Peacocks (even a white one). Guniea fowl. Chickens. Guese. Kune kune pigs. Sheep. Donkeys. Horses. Trout. Rabbits. Guinea pigs. Deer. Goats. Bulls. Turtles. An lots more!. If its wet wear gumboots!.
An absolute must do attraction for family members of all ages. We adore staglands and could easily spend half a day exploring everything on offer. The only thing stopping us from holding an annual pass each year is the road access. It is a difficult and often dangerous road to reach the park, not a great experience if you have car sick prone children.
Staglands has lots of animals( pigs, peacocks, chickens...) just walking about! there's also a fun tractor ride that's on on weekends. The cafe is relaxing and has some nice food. The road going on the way to Staglands is very narrow and quite a long ride but it's definitely worth it!!
