  • It’s really beautiful place that you can come so close to the kangourou and to feed them I really loved the way that is made the place with the nature as well .  more »
  • It's an interesting set up that makes for a wandering kind of adventure. Animal exhibits are spaced out and there are no handheld maps and very few signs. It kind of fits in with the general atmopsher...  more »
  • While many "parks" of this kind resemble zoos, here the kangaroos have at least of space. For everything about other species, however, the Park is housed in the same boat: quite small aviaries, pen for the Tasmanian Devils and dingoes small also. Most of this park really lies in the great outdoors for the kangaroos, and being able to meet them in what looks almost like a natural habitat. The prices are also very democratic, compared to many other parks/reserve of Australia.

  • Relatively small but nice with well looked after Australian fauna. The Kangaroos and Wallabies roam about freely and are well fed. Ever so inquisitive beings. We really enjoyed the visit. I understand most of the animals here are 'rescue animals'. Highly recommended. Entry fee applicable. Ample parking space available close by.
  • We have a 1 ½ Year old and a 3 year old. They absolutely loved getting up and personal with the wallabies, kangaroos and emus. We are from Far North QLD and were amazed to be able to get close to cassowaries and hand feed them! We could never do that here. Great place and great service. Recommend to any family.
  • Don't be dissuaded by the entranceway - this place is good. A wide variety of well cared for animals, and you can feed the kangaroos and wallabies (and the terrifying emus -- they won't attack, but they don't understand personal space...). From koalas to wombats to Tasmanian devils to hawks, owls, cockatoos and colourful birds, this place is packed with neat animals and you can spend hours admiring them all.
  • Definetely worth a visit, my partner didn't want to go and he finally had any regrets. The park is very clean and well maintain, the animals are in good conditions and we saw a lot of species. The open park with kangaroos, wallaby, emus was a lot of fun and the animals are all kind and peaceful. We will go back for sure!
  • An amazing experience. Get up close and personal with the native wildlife and have the opportunity to feed them. We visited on several occasions and brought our international guests here as well. A nice walk as well out in the open with great views of the park.
