“Visit Jimmy the Parrot in the aviary and say hello if he is in a good mood he will say hi back or ask you what you are doing. We have a great kids playground with paddle pool and picnic areas with BBQ's.”

Other Great Outdoors
“The limestone formations at Elephant Rocks are a site of fossils. In 2005 they were the backdrop to the Walt Disney film The chronicles of Narnia. They are situated near Duntroon, a 40-minute drive from Oamaru. Don't miss this special place. You will want to wander around the rocks and have your camera ready for spectacular scenery. Worth the drive just to see this but also for the country side on your way there (if you take the scenic drive via Weston).”
