  • Although the kids seemed to enjoy seeing a variety of different animals and the ride on the train (which is extra on top of entry) I hated this place. The koalas enclosure smells so heavily of ammonia...  read more »
  • Will start by saying check each other over thoroughly after, found a tick on my daughter when we got home! Cuddling the koala was great but $30 a pop is quite steep, especially if you have a large fam...  read more »
  • All animals area friendly, Im so freaking when the Pony followed me everywhere and run away to hide from the Goose. Lovely to hug koala, feed walabi and kangaroo. Such a good experience. 
  • Laid back environment and plenty of animals to see and touch. All the animals were placid and we got to hold a koala, very special! Friendly staff and had plenty of time to talk to people. Take a picnic and spend the day, the kids will love it
  • Had a fantastic day out at this park - held a koala, fed kangaroos and came as close as I dared to some very intimidating Emus! The staff were lovely, and very knowledgeable about their wildlife. Would highly recommend to anyone in WA, looking to get a bit of an Australian experience.
  • The best part of the trip was leaving, breathing that sweet sweet clean oxygen we so often take for granted. Nah but seriously, koalas smelt like poop and had pee stains all over them, the lady even asked if I wanted to hold and have photos with them for $40, don't get me wrong she was very nice, but I wouldn't of even touched one if she paid me $40, moving around to other animal enclosures, all of them smelt that bad it was hard to look at the animals, poop everywhere, wee everywhere. The crocodile enclosure was empty which is no Suprise, the staff probably forgot to fill his water up or something. Overall a very dirty and very smelly park, it has potential with more staff, cleaning, and more animals other than guini pigs that you can see at the pet shop. I would suggest traveling to another wildlife park even if it is further away.
  • Great vaule and fun for whole family 😊
  • The animals had no water and hardly any shade the food that was left out for the animals looked rancid. I left really quickly. Was not worth the $15 that they charge and then they want $30 for a photo with a Khoala that u have to take with your own camera.
