Our Farm Animals
Kangaroos & Joeys
Our Fauna Park is home to a mob of Eastern Grey Kangaroos, representing Australia's largest marsupial species. Kangaroos breed year-round, offering opportunities to spot their young joeys, either hopping around with their mothers or snuggly tucked inside their pouches.
Our Kangaroo mob is ever coming and going, with the birth of joeys, having new 'roo residents' brought in, or sending others out to various animal conservation parks around Australia to prevent inbreeding. One of our longest standing roo residents is Grandma, named for her distinctive white lines featured on her snout is one of the many members of the mob who eagerly greet our guests ready for a feed.
Meet Flipper (White) and Rico (Brown), our two beloved miniature horses. These pampered boys are inseparable and enjoy grooming sessions to stay looking dapper. Retired from their roles as birthday animals, they now relish a relaxed life at our Fauna Park. Apples are their absolute favorite treat, and they stay fit with daily runs and grazing throughout the property.
While often mistaken for ponies, miniature horses are even smaller in size. Flipper, the cheekier of the two, takes the lead during their adventures outside the park. Rico is the sweet and quiet one, content to follow Flipper wherever he goes.
CowsMeet Jemima, Dorothy, Spot, Panda, Billy, Boy, Cash, Spare Change, and George, the beloved members of our farm animal family at Tropical Fruit World. These gentle giants are beautifully natured, each with unique personalities. Cash is the wise matriarch, Dorothy a free spirit, Spot and Panda are playful, Billy and Boy are strong, Jemima has impeccable taste, Spare Change is gentle, and George, the son of Spare Change, is an energetic explorer.
Their favourite snack are our farm bananas (and we don't blame them, they're delicious!) We invite you to visit and witness their love for bananas firsthand. Whether it's watching them graze in the fields or treating them to their favorite snack, spending time with our cows is an unforgettable experience that will make your heart go moo!
Sheep & Lambs
Sheep have been vital in agriculture for millennia, and our farm hosts several breeds, including Black-Faced Dorpers, Merino, and various mixes. They spend their days either in the Fauna Park or grazing in our grassy paddocks, helping keep our orchards well-trimmed. Many of our sheep have formed close bonds with our staff and enjoy seeking scratches as much as food.
Peggy and Clove are beloved members of the flock, known for their sociability. Clove, our first-born lamb of 2023, joined our family in June and is the only male sheep on the property.
Meet Moses (Brown) & Shannon (Grey), our two miniature donkeys. These boys have spent most of their lives at the Fauna Park. They can be shy but are also known for their jealousy. If they see other animals getting all the love, they'll let out loud brays to grab your attention. Moses, the more confident one, trades pats and scratches for food and often leads the pair. Shannon is shyer but warms up quickly when promised his favourite treat, carrots of course!
Our three female Nigerian Dwarf Goats (generously loaned to us by Stoney Creek Farm) are fondly known as the golden girls. Blanche, Dorothy and Rose are some of our friendliest residents. They adore attention over food and are playful and mischievous. Often compared to dogs due to their friendly nature, these small-sized goats are perfect for daily walks around the park on leads.
Blanche (Brown and Black) is the most sociable, always eager to meet guests and receive back scratches.
Dorothy (Black and White) is the troublemaker, initiating chase games with her sisters.
Rose (Brown and White) has a reserved personality but becomes a cuddle bug once she trusts you.
Meet our goats Billy, Junior and Captain
Billy (all white) believes he's the star of the Fauna Park, always seeking attention from guests. Despite being a food lover, he's surprisingly picky, preferring hay and chaff over fruit and vegetables.
Junior (Black & White) is incredibly friendly, having been raised as a house goat. He adores scratches and cuddles.
Captain (Brown & Black) enjoys perching atop farmyard tires, offering him a great view of our visitors. Shy at times, he can be lured in with his favorite food, mulberry leaves.
Junior and Captain are lively and intelligent, often seen playing and chasing each other. To keep them entertained, we provide climbing structures made from recycled tractor tires and various enrichment activities.
Our colorful and diverse flock of chickens brings vibrancy to the park. These feathered ladies are also known for their curious and social nature. Some are curious and adventurous, while others prefer lounging in the coop or foraging for tasty morsels around the farm.
