Navigate on a Segway the rest of the 27 hectares (67 acres), where you can cuddle with koalas, hang out with kangaroos, and observe crocodiles and Tasmanian Devils.

  • Great place to visit. Staff and volunteers did their utmost in miserable weather to make our experience enjoyable. Everyone had a smile on their faces and all the shows were enjoyed by my 4 y.o. Very educational. Great First Nations perspective and conservation perspectives. Loved the train. Photos a breeze and very well priced. Had we known, we would have had as many photos as possible. Would have preferred a day with better weather but a lot of respect to all those working today as if the weather was no concern. Thanks again!
  • Had the koala encounter experience today. It was amazing. The keeper Cathie-Ann gave a very interesting and informative session. We were able to get up close and personal with the koalas but the highlight was definitely cuddling Banger the beautiful big boy. The whole park is well set out with many other animals and birds to see. Highly recommend a visit and especially the koala encounter. It's something to cherish forever. Overall a great day out. All staff very friendly and helpful.
  • Came here to do the high ropes course which has easier courses for beginners and more advanced course to really rest you upper body strength. Other than the hardest level (black) the easier two (green and red) weren't too high up. Staff were friendly and very helpful. I never at any point felt unsafe, everything was well maintained and regulated. I would definitely recommend it if your in the area - though your gonna be sore the next day.
  • Had some really nice exhibits. Liked being able to get up close to the animals that you would only normally see behind a glass wall. Would have like to see more native snake and other reptile species. Only a couple things I would improve. Signage at the exhibits and to the exhibits. Kind of a challenge to navigate as well as some of them weren't labeled well to know what was in the enclosure. The Vending machines need to be labeled better. The buttons dont match the selections. :)
  • Always a great place to visit and it keeps on getting better. Amazing facilities! The playgrounds are excellent with great shows for the kids to teach about the importance of recycling and caring for the environment. The volunteers were friendly and chatty, also knowledgeable about the animals. Thanks for a memorable visit. Highly recommended. 😀
