  • The Zoo is not very large but if you find all the typical animals of the region. There is way to much interact mainly with the kangaroos, but not with koalas. If you want to touch, no Petting or upload, you have to necessarily pay $20 for a horrible photo. It is not worth if what you want is to be with koalas. The staff of the place is not pleasant. The bathrooms are in poor condition and the coffee is bad and expensive.

  • Stopped here ~1 hr during small group Blue Mountain bus tour. This was most enjoyable, educational Australian wildlife attraction during our entire 1 week trip - Koalas, wombats, wallabies, Kangaroos ...  more »
  • We got there when it opened so it wasn't crowded and we got to take our time walking around to view the animals. Of course had our picture taken with Noah the Koala!! Were also able to feed the kangar...  more »

  • It may not be as big as the Taronga zoo but I felt more involved as you can pet the kangaroos and feed them. There was also a huge crocodile which was awesome. I missed the shows like the croc feeding so if you guys are planning a visit, go early and get to watch the shows as well.
  • We went there last week and my son had a wonderful time in there. Staff personnel were friendly and helpful. Park has a nice array of Ozzie birds/animals/reptiles. This park has two parking spots with ample spaces for a large number of cars. Overall a very positive and an amazing experience :)
  • I LOVED the different variety of fabulous animals!!! I have never seen such rare and exotic animals!!! They also occupied me in taking lots of family photos and selfies. The cuteness and beauty made us full of wonder and excitement. The zoo staff were very friendly and patient towards the visitors. It was a great family outing. Enjoy your time there!!!
  • Loved it! It was just the right place to take family that was visiting from oversees. You are able to get up close with wallaby's and koalas. Definitely will be going back.
  • Great day out! Positives: Animals are well presented, healthy, and very close up. Zoo staff are friendly and patient. Negatives: Don't even try buying lunch here. Service is unbelievably slow and chaotic. Queued for 30 mins to buy a couple of hot dogs and chips, waited another 30 for it to arrive, cold. No reasons, just terrible organization and indifferent service from concession staff.
