Kids will love their stay here, which includes a post-dinner campfire, sunrise farm activities including animal feeding, cow milking and egg collecting and an all-day entry to the Paradise Country farm and wildlife park. Parents can relax with a sunset wine tasting on Fridays and Saturdays and, after a day of activity, the whole family can enjoy dinner at the Farmhouse. Best of all, kids get to eat for free if they are staying overnight
