What they say about The Macadamia Castle

Really cool place. Can be a little pricey but well worth it for the tourist. Exceptionally priced for locals who can get a Yearly pass. Lots of cool shows to see that go throughout the day. Lots of animals to see and the keepers are exceptionally knowledgeable. They also have a nice cafe that does great food. They even have a little mini golf course you can play on and a small train ride for the kiddies. Definitely worth checking out.

This was a lot of fun. The kids had a ball. Will be visiting again.


My family and I had an awesome afternoon here and plan to come back next time we are in the area. Although we arrived at 3pm and the kitchen had stopped serving the full lunch menu, there was a great selection of paninis and other food options. The mango and macadamia pancakes were amazing and a must for any visitor!! The gift shop is great with a wide selection of gifts and food options. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and clearly love the animals that are in their care. The area is well set up for children, with lots of shaded play areas and the opportunity to feed animals, learn about animals and ride a train around the park. We loved our time there today and would recommend The Macadamia Castle to anyone!!“.

Such a fun day visiting the animals and playing mini golf! The animals are so well cared for and the staff include you in the animal’s feeds which makes it so interactive. The two little goats there at the moment were my absolute favourite, so cheeky and naughty but full of character!”
Emma Wall

“Great venue to go with children and get them used to being up close to the animals.

Perfect opportunity to feed the kangaroos, ducks, goats, alpacas and many more.
Oh and don’t forget the pancakes in the cafe – they are beyond amazing!“

“Had an awesome day with friends and family. The kids played mini golf most of the day, even discovering a toad in hole 5 lol. We fed the guinea pigs grass, the alpaca palm leaves and the even got to feed crickets to the lizards. The kids got their faces painted and braved feeding the emu. There were kangaroos with joeys and chickens with chicks everywhere. The highlight for our day was having our picture taken with Socks the Tito barn owl. Wow!!, what an amazing animal interaction. Great day with fantastic weather. Lots to see and do. Plenty of smiles all round.“
Shona Skinner

“Had a fabulous day, lots of things for the kids to do and entertaining for all ages.
Kids played in the sandpit with equipment and also in the tree house, loved the flying fox! Had a wonderful little trip round on the train to view what was there and my just turned 4 year old thought it was magical.

We loved feeding some animals and getting up close with a turtle and some birds. My boys were amazed by the snake. Even the 4 year old stayed still for the pat with a rabbit 😍

Great coffee and chips were Moreish!
We topped it all off with an ice cream on the way out.
Well worth it for the afternoon we spent here and look forward to coming back again!“

“The kids will love Macadamia Castle which is a great hands-on animal experience, and a gentle alternative to the frantic – and pricey – Gold Coast worlds.”

“The best pancakes ever!!!! Can’t wait to go back!!!!” Totem

“Keep up the amazing work! The place itself is amazing! The free-flight bird show is as majestic as it sounds, and I’d rate the entire experience 200/10.”
