  • Amazing park! Lots of large enclosures, happy animals, and you can get up close and personal with some of them. We really loved our day here.

  • Liked it very much but thought it was a little expensive for the amount of animals
  • Great place to take the kids, It can be tricky to see some animals as a lot of them sleep during the day or hide from the heat in summer. Make sure you are there for the Devil Feeding times! The kangaroos down the back were a highlight as we could all hand feed them (Very gentle animals).
  • Smaller selection of animals, but very worth it. Natural enclosures and very easy to see all animals including some 40 plus Tasmanian Devils. The staff are very passionate and knowledgeable. Great morning or afternoon out for the kids. We spent just under 3 hours here. Little Tip: worth walking to the emu enclosure, but we kept walking (a long way) to see a coal mine display. You could give that a miss. A great sanctuary and worth a visit!
  • Really good experience. Lots of animals to get very close to if you have the patience. Super friendly staff as well
  • Definitely go and visit! The park is much bigger than I thought it would be. Make sure you stick around for the keeper talks. We had Dom who was patient with the humans and knowledgeable about all the animals he fed. Thanks for a great exoerience!
