During a recent rainy day, we decided to go for a drive and ended up at The Big Rocking Horse. This "big" attraction is located at 452 Torrens Valley Rd, Gumeracha. Open most days, it offers several attractions.
There is also a café, where you can sit and eat a light meal while enjoying the view. We were very impressed that one corner of the café was dedicated to a kids play area with toys and miniature rocking horses available. We ordered from the lower end of the menu, I enjoyed pancakes and syrup, while my friend had a hamburger.
The toy factory is home to a range of unique toys made from wood and other novelty items. If you have children or grandchildren, beware. A strong heart is required or else you could shop until you drop with fun and educational items all on display!
If you haven't been by there recently, you may not realise that entry to the animal park is now virtually free! We were able to enjoy its attractions for a single gold coin each. Animals included alpaca, peacocks, swans, sheep talking cockatoos and more!
Staff provided us with huge umbrellas so that we could enjoy visiting the animals even though the day was cold and miserable. I have to say that this was all pretty fantastic.
