You can even touch a snake, then stroll through the cooling mist of a walk-through aviary, go for a ride on the mini train, encounter George, the friendly Cape Barren Goose, who wanders freely in the Park and greets visitors. According to Potoroo Palace keeper, Gabriel, "sometimes visitors shoo George away, but he is not at all aggressive, just curious". At Potoroo Palace you can enjoy a delicious lunch and coffee at the on-site Blue Wren Café. Barbecues are also available.
