  • That's a lovely little place to visit. It reminded me a small rainforest inside. It's a great place to hold a koala and have a pic with him as it's a very quite place and koalas are definitely not bothered! They have some koalas, kangaroos that you can feed, crocodiles and a few other animals. It's very small but lovely... especially if you're a koala lover cause it's not commercial! The price is 39$ for the entry and the koala picture. They give you a printed copy and let you take some picture or they do sone pictures for you with your camera as well!
  • Close and friendly experience, staff were wonderful, and obviously cared a lot for their animal friends.
  • Great place to visit. 1st time I've held a koala. Was special. Friendly staff.
  • If you r certain about cuddling a koala, this place assurres it. But it's typical touristy
  • You should take this tour. Amazing for the entire family.
