Took my grand children here for lunch, we had a lovely day, nice food, lots of choice and most of all heaps to do and see, we had so much fun. Well worth the money. Thanks guys for a great day out

Another great one for the kids, with a miniature train, pony rides, farm animals to feed, a small roller coaster and more!

I love the peace and quiet of looking around all of the Crystals and gems and sitting down watching the peacocks and other animals they have there. The place is very enjoyable and in a nice setting. Even if it's raining you can sit inside and enjoy a nice coffee and something to eat under cover. Great places to take children as they can go through to the farm they have for children to see and touch the animals.

I love looking through the Crystal shop and enjoy a coffee and something to eat while watching the Peacocks showing off..

Great place for natural energy. An awesome day out for the kids with the crystal museum and agriculture! Thank you Lino!

You will go for the little "train" like bus but this is where you son upgrades to his 1st roller coaster and horse ride. Great place. Bring your own lunch. Busy days there can be big lines for lunch and the trampoline harness.

Great place to grab a coffee and take the kids. You can pick up some really nice gifts for from the gift shop for the 'Mrs' or special lady in your life.

We went to Crystal Mountain specifically to see the animals. We pretty much had the park to ourselves - surprising for a Saturday - and happily wandered around, feeding and petting the llamas, deer, sheep etc. They were all were very happy to pose for photos with us, and we even got to see some newborn bunnies. If you’re even remotely an animal person this place is well worth a visit.

This is a fascinating place to take the kids. With a petting zoo of farm animals to pat, feed and ride, a train and a mini rollercoaster to enjoy, and gold to be panned for, there is still enough time to spend admiring the incredible array of crystals in the shop - after a visit underground down the elevator! A wonderful combination of fun and learning!
