Things to Do

Just a short drive east of the city at Fern Glade, you can view wild platypus in the tranquil retreat for picnicking along the banks of the Emu River. Up the hill is the Lactos Cheese Tasting Center.

Penguins are another attraction here. Visit the Little Penguin Observation Center to view these lovable creatures. A great place to visit with the whole family.
