Marshall’s Animal Park (McLaren Falls Park, Tauranga, NZ)

The mint family went out for a long weekend in Tauranga and decided to make the most of the clear skies by visiting Marhsall’s Animal Park.  It was a nice end to our weekend as it was in the Kaimai’s on the way out of Tauranga. We turned off SH29 and followed down a windy road for a few k’s until we got to the car park.

Initially it reminded us of Kiwi Valley Farm in Henderson Valley (Auckland), but on we soon realised it was on a larger scale.  My little mint enjoyed petting the guinea pigs with Mr Mint, but she wasn’t keen on the pony rides this time.  I love how my little mint changes her mind 🙂

We didn’t get a chance to go on the flying fox, but there will be a next time.  My little mint had so much to see and do, which guaranteed a solid night’s sleep!
