  • Really enjoyed our day out here, the staff really make this place. Chris was so informative and we saw all the animals awake and active. Great to feed the animals and pet them safely and compassionately. Brilliant! Would have loved a tractor ride, but this seemed to just be reserved for coach bookings, which was a shame.
  • Fantastic day out here. Good price for entry and we had a great afternoon walking around the park. We also did the guided tour and learnt so much with the wardens. They also have loss of kangaroos in the park which were fun to feed.
  • A lot nicer than looks on the outside! Staff are extremely friendly and informative, and the animals are truly amazing! From albino hawks to Tasi devils to wombats to learn about and stroke, to the kangaroos, birds, white peacocks and geese wandering around for you to feed, this place is a great place to spend time with the family!
  • Had a great time here. Friendly staff and good tour guide around the animals. Was good to see the Tasmanian devil feeding time and learnt a lot about them. Friendly kangaroos that eat out of your hand. They were really friendly. Some of the birds, cockatoos and parrots, will talk to you as you walk through the enclosures. They were very cute. Just about all the animals are rescue animals and look very well kept and healthy. One of the best animal parks around and not a zoo. There is a big difference. Had lunch in the restaurant which was very good. My partner and daughter both had a burger which had a freshly made patty and fresh salad. Excellent value for $10 each. I had wedges with chilli sauce and sour cream which was also great value at $8. Coffee was good and the gift shop wasn't too expensive for a tourist place. Quality shirts starting around $25 which is pretty good for a gift shop. Can remember the park entry price being reasonable but can't remember how much exactly. Is worth visiting as it's more of an animal sanctuary and not a zoo. Feed bags for the animals only cost $1 at the shop. It's worth getting a few bags to take around as the kangaroos always seem to want more and there a plenty of them. Great experience for young kids as the kangaroos are patient and friendly. They love a good scratch and rub behind the ears. Would visit again when in Bicheno.
  • About the best place I've seen to view "wild animals" in a contained area. Wallaby and Kangaroos are quite tame. Good staff tours. Large and worth the price.
