Fodor's Review

About 10 km (6 mi) north of Murchison this rustic, rural cafe also has a small farm park with sheep, goats, donkeys, and emus. There's a small fee to go into the actual animal park (NZ$5 adults, NZ$3 ages 3 to 15, free for under 3's); however there are also little animal hutches on the expansive lawn—a great place for the kids to run around after a long spell in the car. There's both indoor and outdoor seating and they offer the usual cafe food, either off the blackboard menu or from the cabinet.
