  • What a great place to hand-feed wallabies and pet kangaroos. The animal encounters are wonderful. We really enjoyed the reptile encounter. Staff are great and knowledgeable. The park is clean and animals look and seem very well cared for. Great variety of amazing birds, lots of incredible mammals, and a very interesting reptile exhibit. If you live within driving distance, an annual pass would be well worth the money.
  • As an American tourist, this park was all we had hoped for and more. I don't expect another time in my life that I will be able to feed, pet, and be so upclose with Australian animals. We spent almost five hours there and listened to as many of the zoo talks and feedings as we could. Kangaroos, Tasmanian Devils, penguins, dingos... we even got to see the dingo puppies. The animal handlers/keepers welcomed all our questions and were very knowledgeable and friendly. My nine year old son was in heaven. Thanks for a great experience!
  • One of the best wildlife parks we have visited. The USP here is being able to strike and feed the wallabies and kangaroos and get your photo taken stroking a koala ($20 charge). Great to wander round taking in Australian wildlife. The cafe offer a wide selection but I felt it was pricey though current exchange rate doesn't help. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Great day out, thoroughly recommended.
  • Took some friends here that arrived from overseas. The team couldn't have been more helpful. Such a wonderful way to up close with Australia's iconic animals - feed touch and feel in a real life experience. Highly recommend for travellers, families and animal lovers!
  • This was the highlight of our trip to Australia. Got to hold a dingo pup, feed kangaroos and take a picture with a koala up close. Didn't expect them to all be so soft. Wonderful experience. Highly recommend doing the whole package.
