Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park, Calga

4.4
#55 of 194 in Wildlife in New South Wales
This wildlife sanctuary in New South Wales offers a rare combination of free-roaming Aussie animals and ancient Aboriginal rock art. When you enter Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park, expect to be greeted by kangaroos. Wallabies and emus hop along the path to the visitor center. Along the 3 km (1.85 mi) of walking tracks, you'll see animals such as wallabies, wombat, flying foxes, and crocodiles. Meet Zoe, the park’s most-photographed kangaroo, with her sparkling studded collar. You can also get a photo with a koala or python. The rangers tell stories about the animals and their survival in the bush. At Aboriginal Heritage and Bush Tucker/Medicine tours, see the Hawkesbury engravings, one of 4,000 engravings, stencils, and paintings in the area. Learn how to throw a boomerang and pick out the shape of animals lurking in the trees.

    We found this park by chance on our road. We stayed the day without seeing the time passing! The Rangers are very nice. Kangaroos are at large and it is possible to approach them and caress them to comply with the safety instructions. Great memory! Very nice and human-sized Park.

    This sanctuary is a magnificent experience for every foreign family. It turned out to be the favourite attraction for our three kids during our Australia vacation. We booked 'Wild Sleep Out' in tent, ...  more »

    We live locally and went here for the first time the other day. I had my 9 year old and my 13month old. We ended up staying for about 4 hours! The kids loved it! My 9 year old got to hold a guinea pig...  more »

  • Magic, friendly, informative and happy looking animals .....! Why because the cockatoo said "hello" to us. Really great. My three year old had her second visit and I think she would go again. Just like me.
  • Stayed in a cottage and it was lovely. Staff (manager) is amazingly helpful and accommodating. We were allowed late checkout without asking as there is no other people checking into our room. Staff are very knowledgeable. Plenty of animals. Babies (1.5 years) loved it here!
  • We stayed overnight in a cottage and booked the night tour. It was an amazing experience! We had access to many animal enclosures and pet them. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Lots of fun!
  • We were looking for the place where we can meet and talk with wambat and we wanted to meet other beutiful animals and nature. We stayed overnight in a cottage and booked a spotlight tour and a  behind scene tour. As soon as we opened the entrance door, a beutiful staff welcomed us very warmly and gave us very useful information about the park. She also allowed us to early check in as well. Every single zoo keeper and ranger we met in the park are very friendly, lovely and knowledgeable. It was really fun to follow the time table at daytime but I strongly recommend to sleep over at the park and do not miss the spotlight tour and behind scene tour. There is no world to explain that.....so beutiful and unique experience. The cabin was very clean and comfortable but it was little bit hard to control the hot water and cold water during a shower. We had access to many animal enclosures and pet them during the tour. End of the spotlight tour,  a romantic camp fire and yammy mashmallow were waiting us. Also you can easily find out a lots of stars in the sky. Beutiuuuuuuuuuuuul..... The ranger asked us what we wanted and gave enough time to talk and pet them over there. We really enjoyed and we will be there again. Lovely happy overnight!!!!!!!Thank you all~~
  • Fantastic day out. Learnt alot about the wildlife out there. Would recommend for a hands on experience.
