A mysterical adventure

Meet the Hobblers of Hobbledown Farm. These 'mysterical' creatures moved to Epsom last July and have settled down quite nicely.

Based on the children's book by Angela Kecojevic, Hobbledown park merges fantasy with the real world, creating 'a world full of mysterical magic and fun'.

Bouncer The Wallaby

Meet Bouncer, the springy wallaby, Gibblegook, the Amazonian parrot, and Kya, the harris hawk, who gives wonderful flying demonstrations.

If you're lucky, you might see a Hobbler. Huck, Fern, Eliza and Professor Topperpot are often found walking about the park. But be careful of the Skibblers, they're always up to trouble.

There are plenty of places to explore at Hobbledown, including the Village and market, a play barn and picnic spot, and the Field of Confusion.

The Hobblers are industrious creatures, and spend a lot of time digging in the mines for crystaline. They'd really appreciate your help. If you collect 20 crystaline pieces, they'll reward you with a lollipop from the shop.

After all that hard work, no doubt you'll need a refreshment. Try their macaroni-doodle or Rumpletumb chilli. It's healthy, it's delicious, and it's available at the Hobblenosh cafe, next to the barn.

Entrance costs between 4-12.50 depending on times and concessions, but you can get in for less with an annual pass.
