Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park, Calga

4.3
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.

  • I am posting to recommend Walkabout Wildlife Park at Calga to anyone who hasn't been yet. A friend and I went with my 18 month old and my friend's 2 1/2 year old yesterday. There were friendly free ra...  more »

  • Located almost 52 KM from Sydney this small and older park allows kids to walk amongst the kangaroos, walabies and more. TIP: Wear good covered shoes, as the paths are 'natural' and small stones etc c...  more »

  • The kangaroos and emus are not pushy because they are not fed by hand so they don't chase you for food but they do let you pat them. There's a lot of walking tracks if you want but not much walking to see the animals. You could see all the animals in 20 mins. Great to see Aussie animals quickly and without much effort. The price is double what it should be but keep in mind you're donating to preserve and protect Australian animals and their environment. If you want to try something cheaper but further up the coast go to black butt reserve.
  • My first outdoor adventure in Australia and I have to say it was worth it. You cant expect a BIG ZOO going in there, it is just a small and well knit zoo/farm, where you get up close experiences will exotic Australian animals...
  • Great change from the bigger zoos. The animals are well looked after and there is a daily schedule of feeding/talks. Only downside is the price - pretty expensive for a family tickey
  • 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!
