To be honest, I was not expecting what we found - a beautifully kept farm and woodland full of cherry blossom prettiness! After parking up, we made our way in through the cafe. Our entry was €18, with prices €6 p/person and under 2's free. After admission, we were led to the start of the farm by a very pleasant staff member who gave us some information about the grounds as it was our first time. We began at the toddler play and party area which was surrounded by picnic tables. Even though there were other families and a party there it did not feel crowded. In fact, from start to finish it felt like this as there was so much space.
Our path then led past the obstacle course and into the exhibition shed where we were greeted by a friendly and cheerful young employee who told us a little about the snakes and rabbits, both of which we got the chance to pet. He made it so relaxed that both of the girls were brave enough to give it a go (the corn snake was a different story though - that was a job for super Dad!)
We continued on through towards the playground - but not before whispering in the wishing well and saying hello to the emus and wallabies! We then followed the forest trail around the grounds spotting some animals and even a fairy cottage. The girls were in their element running around freely and safely through a little person's dream! Everything is so clean and kept so well, it was the perfect place to explore with little legs beside you. Even though there were many families and a children's party on site during our visit, it never felt crowded or rushed. The grounds are so well kept and spaced out you can explore at your own pace (with lots of cute photo ops along the way!)
As they say; "a Sunday well spent brings a week of content," and after our trip to Wallaby Woods, I am expecting contented little faces to surround me for the next few days - such a gorgeous place that we will definitely be revisiting!
