The Big Rocking Horse And The Toy Factory

Landmarks and Buildings

Bring the children to see the world’s biggest rocking horse.

You can climb to the top of The Big Rocking Horse, which stands at 18 metres high. Then visit the seven-acre animal park where, among other things, kangaroos and wallabies can be hand-fed. Relax and enjoy a meal or coffee in the child-friendly cafe, outdoor patio or shaded picnic area.

Wander through the Toy Factory to see Australia’s largest range of quality wooden toys. A huge range of locally manufactured and imported, educational wooden toys are available, as well as an impressive supply of souvenirs.
