What an amazing hidden gem. It is a large area up the hill with incredible views and a lot of beautiful animals. Some info: Road is unsealed and single lane. It goes up pretty steeply. We went in with our campervan on a bright, sunny day, but wasnt really suitible. Regular cars should be fine. Drive carefully, there's animals everywhere (deer, Llamas, giant cows, goats, small horses). There are two stations where you can buy food to feed the animals. The stations only take 2 dollar coins, so bring those. One coin gives you a giant tin of food. Entry fee is $55 per vehicle (max 7 persons). We intitially thought that was pretty expensive, but turned out to be absolutely worth it.



Situated in Deer Park Heights farm, you pay 50nzd par car (max 5 people if I remember well) and can spend as much time as you want in the property. It's one of the most beautiful places I've visited and worth the money. (You can even feed the animals if you want.)
