    Very difficult to feed the kangaroos! They were as good as gold is Cuteness! With small children, be sure to take their go! Although the place is not very big, but you can go FA Kangaroo Park stub in their pictures and touch!

    It is a zoo in Sydney suburbs, train is located about an hour. Koalas are 抱kemasenn by the laws of the State, but photography is possible together. Park is very spacious and can have fun while giving the food (ice cream cone) in the Kangaroo is grazing areas. Endemic to Australia such as Wombats or Tasmanian Devil filled in otherwise have seen slow and take one day, but customers are not so much a leisurely stroll. Because there was Pokemon GO kangaskhan can kangaroos game with real photos, too!

    From the Blue Mountains came on the way to the Hunter Valley. Basic Zoo I don't much like, but here enjoyed difference with others. Cage at least, sense of distance and the animal is good furniture. Animal odors and also nothing can hand people want animal-like sounds. Worth a visit is. Can satisfy 10 minutes if you have time, about an hour and a half!

    I didn't expect much. My daughter wanted to feel a koala, so I had to get her over to this place to put her hands on it. I was impressed. They had more birds than any zoo I've been to, and very nice and beautiful birds. They had all of the animals native to Australia, and you can actually feed and pet the kangaroos. We were limited with our time but spent two exciting hours there. It was a better experience than a zoo because you can have encounters with the animals. The prices weren't that bad considering that the park had so much to offer. Probably about 30 koalas in different parts of the zoo, and I would guess at least 75 kangaroos. Very nice experience, in the middle of a not so nice neighborhood.

    One of my favorite places to go to see native wildlife. The grounds are well maintained and clean. The animals are well cared for, many are free roaming, and the enclosures are kept in a state similar to the animals' native environment. You can feed and pet the kangaroos, take a picture with a koala, and learn about native species and conservation from their presentations throughout the day. My favourite part is the variety and amount of bird species. Great place to take kids and for tourists (I always take my family visiting from the US).

    A must see zoo where kangaroos roam almost free, you can feed them (get kangaroo food as you enter for $2 a cup), pet them, take pictures with them and enjoy them for hours. Koalas are super cute and you have to really watch for when they are awake as they make really good subjects for your photos. Overall a very pleasant half-day activity for the entire family. Getting here by train is very easy and directions are straightforward.

    It's a wonderful wildlife park and with it's specialization to the Australian wildlife always worth a visit. There are several enclosures so that you have a very good chance to see one of the animals in action like koalas, kangaroos or wallabies. The photoshoot with a koala is to discuss and I don't like to see that they are flashed all the time. On the other hand, the park does a lot of breeding and has a good care program. The staff is extreme friendly and always there for a chat.

    Amazing local wildlife park and zoo. It is a small zoo but you can spend a lot of time in it, especially getting up close and personal with a selection of animals. The staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the all the animals. There is a cafe that has a decent variety of food and drink that you can order from. My favourite experience was being able to pet the kangaroos and feed them. If you plan on coming more than once, buying a season's pass may be worth your while.
