It was originally an orange orchard, named Mountain Grove, which officially opened to the public on 29th July 1976 with the amphibious Army Duck tours and the Colonial Restaurant. woodward family 40 years later, the park now has 3 key experiences - the Koala & Wildlife Park, the Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience and the Army Duck rainforest tours. Charles and Pip's three sons, Michael, Ben and Peter, grew up on the property, spending a lot of time in what's known as Woodies Treehouse. Not a bad way to grow up! woodward family These days, along with their parents, they each play an integral role in The CaPTA Group as it is today.
