  • One of our favourite places to visit! Have been here multiple times and have loved it each time. Each of the animals has a story, lovely to see the animals being cared for and loved. Really special place! Nice little gift shop too!
  • Great place to visit! Make sure you come for the Keeper tour, was well worth it. Feeding the Tawny Frogmouths was a highlight.
  • We loved Potoroo place. The educational talks were awesome and we were able to see all the animals up close, including an echidna and kangaroos. Holy hecken those were some cute roos. Definitely go here if you'd like to get that classic photo with a roo.
  • Goot family outing. Dont need a whole day. Mainly kangaroos
  • Remember this isn't a zoo, its a sanctuary. Spent 7hrs with the kids, fed every animal, did the wombat experience, kids even went with the keeper into many animals cages to handfeed. Rode the train and didn't even spend $80. What an awesome place and we even got a letter in the mail from the wombats. How cool is that
