    The attraction is located right next door to WB Movie World, so 25 minutes drive from Broadbeach. We spent an afternoon there, which we found was enough time with a 7 and 3 year old. The animal nurser...  more »

    Dear oh dear, what a dreadful disappointment this place turned out to be! We took out two grandchildren (10 & 8) down for the day expecting loads of baby animals in the nursery, lots of farm animals, ...  more »

    Lots of Australiana, farm animals and surprisingly a tasty good value burger and chips. Get a 4 theme park annual pass though, I'm not sure what price is for a single visit.  more »

    Fairly small and you can finish seeing everything in half a day easily. However it is fun and enjoyable to look and play with the few animals you are allowed to. Would be better if there was greater access to more animals, however limited access is understandable.

    I got the ticket included in a season pass package. It might take you half day to finish the whole park unless you are fascinated in animals very much. Good for kids encountering animals. The buffet is $18. It looks cheap but actually you have not many choices. Better choose burgers or leave before lunch.

    Staff were highly energetic hence 2 stars... Was frustrating that Chinese mandarin speakers had live translations but other people who didn't speak English didn't, should cater to all by offering those headsets that are at other parks. Tourists were rude and ignorant and physically shoved us out of the way which was annoying. The walk from the carpark is excessive and looks disorganised. Kangaroos were really excited about the food but that was about it. Couldn't really enjoy the show we went to as the poor presenters had to pause the show every short sentence for the Chinese translator to repeat what they'd said. It made it messy and awkward and the presenter kept talking over the translator which showed it was a waste of time if the presenters didn't respect it either. We spent max 2 hours there if that, was part of a pass we bought which seems to be similar to the other people reviewing. Wouldn't have paid to do this. Gate/gift shop staff look bored and over it and most of the animals look exhausted.

    Despite a miscommunication about what time we were to be there for our koala breakfast we were so well looked after by all the staff and couldn't have been happier with the experience. We felt extremely special and privileged. And my 2 year old had a ball for her birthday!

    Just a farm with nothing special. But what disappoints people is that the farm is full of Chinese tourists who are not very nice. They were laugh and yell at the sleeping koalas just under a sigh saying " don't disturb their sleep". But there's no one stop the rude behaviour. I watched the show about shaving the sheep on 2 June. As a native Chinese speaker, I can tell that the translator is not good at all like with nothing preparation. She did not only translate the words without accuracy, but also speaking something without meaning in Chinese. She just hoked something and then continue. I suggest that if you really want the Chinese tourists know what is happening, change her to another translator.
