The air was filled with the sounds of live acoustic music and the delicious smells of sausage sizzles at Altina Wildlife Park.
Families came from Griffith, Wagga Wagga and all towns in between on Sunday to celebrate Altina's 15 year anniversary.
Altina's animal and operations manager Rebecca Surian said it was "absolutely fantastic" to see so many come out and enjoy the day's events.
And while it was clear the animals captured everyone's hearts, many kids took advantage of the jumping castle, baloon animals, as well as sitting down to watch a magic show and horse shows as well, before tackling a tour.
