There is an off-road car park at the entrance but it quickly fills up giving patrons a short walk from surrounding streets. After paying your gold coin entry, there is a slight downhill walk, passing through potted shrubs for sale on either side of the walkway.
The pot lined entrance path, with playground in background.
The undercover area could almost be called the food court as half the stalls were vending edibles. Everything from coffee to falafels, arancini, profiteroles, and bread. The central area was set up with several tables and chairs to enjoy those tasty morsels.
There were several unusual stalls. One that looked very colourful was Divine Mushrooms. Simply fantastic fungi is what co-owner Simon calls them and they looked fantastic with their strange shapes and colours. The public is often warned about eating mushrooms of an unknown origin or paddock picked, but Simon's are grown on his property and are certainly safe and delicious to eat.
A labrador in a leopard print coat caught my eye. He was manning a stand called Hotrod Houndz. I found out he doesn't drive hotted up cars, but sells, "Kustom Dog Wear & Accessories for the Dog Lover."
His business partner is Rachel, who makes all the products they sell. One item that caught my eye was a sort of cushion made up from strips of fabric and called a 'Snuffle Mat." Naturally, I asked what a snuffle mat was. Rachael explained that you fill the mat with doggie kibble and watch your canine friend find the treats hidden within the mat.
Ever wondered what happens to old nuts, bolts, screws, washers spanners, chains and ball bearings? We throw them out, but Tony collects them and with his welding skills turns them into recycled metal artworks.
Apart from the playground, children are also entertained by Jindi, "the zoo that comes to you." Baby goats, lambs, hens and ducks allow the kids to get up close and personal to the furry and feathered creatures. I think the animals enjoyed the encounters as much as the kids.
