Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park, Calga
(4.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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 have never been in a place where we could experience the animals so close and take such great pictures. Staff is very friendly and answered all our questions. We loved it!

  • Phenomenal Staff. We hired a private ranger and towards the end of the tour, the rangers helped me orchestrate an ideal scenario to propose to the girlfriend. Even better, she said yes :-D We are eternally grateful and very impressed at the goodwill flowing from the staff. A lifetime memory. All excitement aside the park is amazing, authentic and natural, recommend for any lazy day and helps support care of these beautiful animals.
  • 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.
  • The aboriginal artwork was hard to see. The paths were eroded in lots of places.. the animals were nice but not really friendly
