The Wallaby Woods School Tour Experience 2017

Wallaby Woods Donadea opened its doors to the public in June 2013. We are a family run Open Farm set in 16 acres of woodland and water with a 2.5k trek through the woods.

It’s an Animal of an Adventure with 35 different species on our farm including 2 different breeds of Wallaby, Emus, North American Long Eared Owls to name but a few  and it is a truly wonderful experience for all ages.

In addition for 2017, we have on display (behind glass – Ex The Butterfly Farm Straffan) a collection of live tarantulas, scorpions, stick insects, leaf insects, millipedes and small reptiles etc. These are all housed in natural surroundings and can be viewed close up as they go about their daily lives.
