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.

  • Really enjoyed this park, it's not everyday that you can actually get up close and personal with so many animals and without paying extra. My little grandson just loved being able to pat a Koala. 
  • Great place to see a lot of unique animals. We learned a lot from the staff. We were able to touch Kangaroos, Koalas, Emos and more. Also was glad to learn that the majority of the animals are rescues. This isn't a zoo but more of a sanctuary. Very Cool. Very Chill.
  • We stayed in the cabin accommodationand it was very comfortable and had everying we needed. We did not have any children with us but I could see how much children enoyed getting in with the animals. Sprintime would be a good time to go so start thinking bout it now. It is so close to Sydney that a day trip is easily done
  • On Saturday 5th March, me and my mum were driving to Newcastle and i had to stop to go to the bathroom and we drove around for a very long time looking for a bathroom. We decided to stop at the wildlife park as a last result. I do understand that they do not let anyone off the street use their facilities but i am pregnant and desperately needed to go and the lady at the front counter was so completely rude to me and my mum and would not let me use it. So she made me pay the entry fee of $25 to use the bathroom which i paid and did not argue. My mum then asked if the ticket could be given to the next person that came through to which she abruptly responded NO. Even when we left we said thank you and she didn't even acknowledge us. We did not argue with her and we paid but we were just treated disgustingly.
  • Staff in the park was super nice. And all the animals were happy and healthy. And the kids got to pat and feed the farm animals. Everyone had a great time.
  • 5 star based on the highly recommended overnight stay and private access you get to the animals in the nocturnal setting. It's not cheap but it is good value and my 3 boys (6-10) loved it. Friendly Kangaroos wallabies and Emus wandering through the campsite when you get up in the morning. Night tour around the camp complete with termite tasting and aboriginal rock carvings.
