We had such a wonderful day, on July 20th. our tour guide was brilliant too. We loved the wildlife park and feeding the kangaroos, The homestead farm was really interesting. The penguin parade, was all my penguin mad daughter, had dreamed of. just one small criticism, we felt we had to rush off at the end, it would have been better to have left at 7.30 rather than 7.
