The Good Life Retreat is a unique, idyllic setting with beautiful views, where you can get up close and personal with a variety of hand-reared animals. The furry and feathery family currently includes alpacas, ducks, Valais black nose sheep, miniature goats, Flemish giant rabbits, a chihuahua named Dolly, cats – Kevin and Martha (all bottle-fed babies) and chooks.
The retreat is home to a beautiful garden and orchard with views across the Waikato. There is also a duck pond, beehives, grapevines and more – all of which you will view as you wander the property and meet the animals.
The Tour is by appointment only, and usually available 7 days a week. You will be able to get up close with the animals, hand feed them and have ample time for photo opportunities. This is an outdoor tour so a raincoat may be required, and sensible outdoor footwear is recommended. You will need to be able to walk up and down a small amount of stairs.
