  • 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.
  • Great day out. Beautiful animals and scenery and plenty opportunities to get up close with a kangaroo, koala, snake etc. Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly
  • Loved my visit there. Works best if you have your transport as public transport there is rather limited. If going by bus check times and make sure you are early so as not to miss you bus!
  • My partner had originally booked a private night tour for my birthday and it was absolutely perfect, so when my parents came down I booked the private koala holding tour! We had such an amazing time! The staff is incredible and the park has great trails, amazing views, and the BEST wildlife to feed! We'll continue to go back and take any of our guests there as well!
  • Great wildlife park. If you're after all the obligatory Australian animals then this is the place. It's also just a stone throw from Mount Lofty which is a bonus.
