Our original plan was to visit the Paradise Country Farm in the morning (its a half day tour included in the package) and go shopping and beach in the afternoon. But, the coach that supposed to pick us FORGOT about us!!!!
So our day plan was messed! We called the local agency and they apologised and arranged another coach to pick us up for a later timing. So we went back to our apartment and rot till its time to leave.
Its a self guided tour and the operator at the farm gave us a map each and told us the timing for the show and location and its on our own to roam around the place which is not very big. As we were walking around, little Nic found some kangaroos and without a second thoughts, walked over and stroke them. Luckily, they are very friendly.
We have to pay AUD15.00 to take this picture and for the kids to stroke the koala.
Next, we hopped over the the nursery to see the baby animals but its a disappointment. Just a few calves, lamb, kids and pigs.. hubby commented that our Singapore Zoo or even our goat farm is better than this!
The highlight of the day is the Sheep Shearing Show and all the kids were totally engrossed watching the sheep thick wool being shave! Even little Nic watched with mouth open!
Then its followed by lunch and then the Billy Tea Show which its a waste of time. But little Nic enjoyed seeing the horse chasing the cow around.
Next is the sheep dog's chance to show off. As with most farm show, they had this boomerang and whip cracking stuff and a little cow milking session for the kids to try. Both the girls did well milking the cow.
By the time we are done and back to our apartment, its already closed to 5pm and hubby took the kids to beach while I do some laundry and ironing in the apartment.
