FROM magical mazes to cuddly animals, Amazement at Wyong lives up to its name, especially for kids.
There are plenty of friendly farm animals including ponies, alpacas, sheep, emus, donkeys and Bunny World has rabbits, guinea pigs and chickens. Geese, peacocks, ducks and a great variety of chooks are roaming free everywhere.
On most weekends you can watch the Wyong Creek Sheepstakes. The sheep, Nellie, Friday and Sunday are saddled up with their jockeys - Penguin, Rupert Bear and Rabbit - and compete in a short race, jumping through tractor tyres and over little hurdles as they hurtle towards the winning post.
A top day for the family with perfect picnic settings, barbecues, and a games cafe plus the Big Barn restaurant serves lovely food - from delicious snacks to scrumptious meals.
Amazement is open at weekends, public holidays and school holidays, and by arrangement for group visits on weekdays during school term time.
