Make a splash at Rancho Texas Park
A day at Rancho Texas Park will no doubt be a holiday highlight. This Wild West-themed park is a must-visit for families here. A short journey up the coast and you're in for a fantastic day out. The best thing about Rancho Texas Park is that it's actually two things. You'll see all sorts of fascinating wildlife, from friendly parrots and sea lions to exotic tigers and komodo dragons! There's plenty of great animals to see, all under one roof, and don't forget to check out the petting zoo where you'll be able to get up close to some of your favourite animals. As if that wasn't enough fun, swap your shorts for your swimming gear and head over to the other side; a water park! Here you can let loose in the sun and cool off with some great attractions, you can even try your hand at canoeing. And the fun doesn't stop when the sun goes down. In the evening, don't miss the Wild West dinner show at the Wild Horse Saloon. You'll be treated to an evening of great barbecue food, your favourite drinks, music, dancing and everything cowboy including horse-riding displays and lasso skills. You'll feel like you've walked into another era.
