  • A park where animals are mostly free and approachable by visitors. Kangaroos approaching fearful but then let themselves be caressed. Pelicans, emus, koalas, Lizards and various reptiles. The visit is definitely a must to do

  • The park is just beautiful. Very interactive and informative. The kids will absolutely love it, mine do. With Koala holds and photos as well as Reptile holding and photos this place is sure to impress. The have animals roaming around for you to feed and pat. Just a wonderful conservation park.
  • It's an amazing place to bring family. Be sure to wear comfy walking shoes as the place is huge. Love the feeding and just bask in the grass with the animals.
  • Beautiful and spacious place, able to feed and pat the animals, get to hold a koala, serene, friendly ranger.. great for animal lovers!
  • Everything you've heard from the other 5 star reviews is true. Maybe we were lucky, but we had a very short wait to cuddle a Koala, and that, combined with the intimate Roo experience was a win win.
  • Took the kids and they had a great day. They particularly loved hand feeding all the animals around the park.
