We’re regular visitors at Macadamia Castle, because it is perfect for my young children. They love all that the castle has to offer - including the animals, the feeding/petting, shows, the playgrounds, the mini golf and the milkshakes! The staff are always friendly to us,...More

You can see the park is suffering from a downturn in visitors now there is a highway bypass so they don't get as much traffic driving past and stopping for food. We started with lunch and food was decent. We both had burgers and chips....More

Today visited the Castle expecting it to be about the manufacturing of macadamia nuts but was actually an animal park with games whereby interest was more focused towards children. They have a shop selling numerous novelty items and several flavoured types of macadamia nuts which...More

Enjoy walking around the animal park. The kangaroos are tucked off in the rainforest walk, but are friendly and do come out for a pat or food. Have been three times over the years, but only managed to get to pat the rabbits once. I...More
