MonkeyBirds Zoo & Restaurant
Featuring all your favourite members of the animal kingdom, a leisurely stroll through the MonkeyBirds Zoo is the ideal activity for animal lovers and animal impressionists alike. With well looked after animals looking to meet you up close and personal, gather a group of fellow animal lovers and make MonkeyBirds Zoo your next stop.

Be sure to spend some time with Bobby and Katryn, two very entertaining black-capped capuchins who simply love to entertain people. Some of the very rare species also include Geoffreys marmosets from the rain forests of Brazil, and black and white lemurs and ringtail lemurs from Madagascar. As far as the feathery friends go, there are some super rare Major Michelle cockatoos.

The different rose varieties are cultivated with the utmost precision and tedious dedication to perfection. These flowers are sold not only on the farm, but also at Summerfields outlets in White River.
