We do not have a booking system, so if you just turn up on the day you can pay upon entry. We do have an on-site capacity of 150-200 people, if we hit this there may be a short wait as we wait for other visitors to leave. On average we found this to be 10-15 minutes waiting time.

Yes! We have a designated undercover picnic area, and several benches around the park. There is also a grass area between the baby seal pool and the penguins, which is perfect for picnics in good weather!

Natureland does not have a car park.  A council run pay and display car park is 100m North of Natureland.  There is limited on-road parking on the opposite side of the street outside Natureland.
