Craft activities

Get creative with our craft activities on the lawn near the Rail Gate entrance. Come inside the cosy Critter Craft marquee and have fun building your favourite animal or unique pair of binoculars. You can also take your master work home with you!

Play and read at the outdoor library

For those little ones that are more into reading, we've got them covered too. Visit the limited-time-only outdoor library next to the Critter Craft marquee, where kids can find a book and read about their favourite animal in a quiet space.
