Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park, Calga

4.2
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.

  • Love this place. The staff and super friendly and knowledgeable. All the talks were interesting and relevant. The animals all seem happy and it was wonderful to be able to get up close to so many animals in their natural surroundings. Wonderful. Well worth a look
  • Super amazing Bush park, with great selection of native Australian mammals and reptiles. Great enclosures set up for Koalas, Wombats, Pigs, Goats. Free roaming friendly Kangaroos and Emus. Big bird enclosures, with great range of birds, from Kookaburras to Bats to Owls and Parrots. You can also set of on a Bush walk, water falls and aboriginal rock drawings. Reptile holding, snakes and lizards. Classes in how to throw a boomerang. Great family environment, great for couples, or even go on your own.
  • This place is so cool!! I was really hoping to hold a baby koala, but no such luck. Though, we did see and pet one koala. She was very sweet and timid. The coolest part about this place is that the kangaroos and wallabies and emus just walk around freely and you can pet them if they're near you.
  • Not too crowded so got to see and hear all of the many keeper's Talks(very interesting and informative). Also got to touch,feel and hold some of them. Even got to see the Fruit Bats getting a pedicure!
  • We found the Rangers very knowledgeable and keen to explain all they could about the animals. We had an excellent experience. Highly recommended.
