Hanmer Springs Animal Park offers a unique and enjoyable and educational experience for
all ages. We have a range of interesting and interactive animals including some exotics such
as Tibetan yak, chinchillas, water buffalo, emu and wallabies.
Children are welcome to bring lunch to the park or you can book a catered lunch through
our café.

All our animals have signs with informative and interesting information and children get a lot
of enjoyment from hand feeding them.

Basic Package is $8 per child and includes a bag of animal feed and a group information
gathering exercise. We recommend a minimum of 1 hour for this. If the children bring lunch
then allow at least 1.5 hours.

Educational Package (coming for the 2018 school year) is $11.50 per child and includes all
the above plus a presentation on wallabies and some of our other pest species and their
impact on the NZ environment. We recommend a minimum of 1.5 hours for this. If the
