With spring in full bloom at Staglands, baby animals have arrived early this year and they are expecting more! The newborn animals that visitors can already look out for are Cape Barren goslings, a Jersey Calf, an Arapawa kid, and the adorable Kune Kune piglets!

This offer is available for kids aged 4 to 16 from 14th September to 13th October 2019. One half-priced child’s entry ticket per book on the day of visit. Not valid with any other offer, including Entertainment Book.
