Nothing as happy as a kid in a candy store
Want a break from wine tasting? Need a sweet treat to bribe the kids? Just want a good coffee pick-me-up? Make sure you swing by the Hunter Barn.

This pretty cafe offers something for everyone - if it's not too hot outside, enjoy the scenery or play a game of giant chess. Escape the heat by relaxing on the comfy lounges in the coolness inside, while indulging in some sugary satisfaction.

The kids will love the quirkyness of the place. There is the World's Largest Kangaroo made of lollies, destined for the Guiness World Record, made of 12, 788 jelly beans.

However, the attractions don't stop there! There is a giant gumball machine, a vintage car from the cane fields, a tank and oddly, a seaplane.

Obviously, the main attraction for all are the beautifully presented sweets and freshly made cakes. We spent a good half hour exploring the goodies before making our choices. My recommendation is that fresh coconut chocolate, while the kids went down the American Candy route.

Build it into an after lunch itinerary and I promise you perfectly behaved angels at the winery.
