  • If you like hanging out with large Chinese tour groups and having commentary translated to Chinese then this is the place for you. Pretty ordinary place although they do have a lot of Koalas. So many ...  more »
  • The Park as a farm offers also sheep and horses. In addition to the kangaroos, the cute koalas here but are the stars, especially their children ("Joey"). I have the little rascals about two hours watching and was lucky to catch them as they just have gemuemmelt - beautiful slowly of course - their Eucalyptus leaves in and fell asleep almost immediately during their lunch. Wonderful! If you are travelling with the bus, be pointed out on the 20-minute walk to the park here. The entrance is above average with $30, is offset by the many koalas but alone.

  • What an unusual place. I really don't know what the people who designed this place are aiming for. Was expecting some outback type experience or something. In reality it's just a random conglomerate o...  more »

  • Well i come to this place when I was a kid, its was fun back than see Animal like Sheep, horse, kangaroo and my favorite animal Koala! , And I also had a picture with koala with my family too. overall very happy and great place for family holiday.
  • We visited the restaurant dinner one night after seeing it was open in the evenings now (we visit during the day quite often) The service was AMAZING. The food is excellent. But the best part is the atmosphere of the park at night. So peaceful and quiet and really pretty. I think we'll be doing the Farmstay soon now.
  • It was hot. You had to walk approximately 1km+ from the Carpark to entrance up and down hills with no shade. There was a driveway right to the entrance but has been closed off. The kids loved the animals. I think we stayed about 3hours but that was only because we watched the 3 shows on offer. Staff are lovely. More thought needs to go into getting patrons from car park to entrance
  • Worst experience at a so called theme park. Long walk from the carpark in the blazing heat. Expensive food and icecream. Free tap was hot and tasted like plastic. Very very animals and shows. I think they left most of the animals at the zoo in Sydney. I'll be surprised if they continue to stay open.
  • We have great fun inside, enough for half day tour but you need to book with Con-x-ion for transport(AUD 18@). No public transport can go directly. The Kangaroo inside was so relax and you can touch them without any danger! The mine craft was so funny, real opal? The shows must watch!
