  • Nice natural zoo. Hippie atmosphere. The less impressive part is the one of the Koalas. With a souvenirs shop with bar service.
  • The cafe does a lovely curry. Small but friendly wildlife park.
  • We could even pet a phyton and baby wombats. I'll never forget this animal park.
  • Excellent and calm experience with native animals.
