Billabong Zoo: Koala & Wildlife Park, Port Macquarie

4.1
#3 of 22 in Outdoors in Port Macquarie
Learn all about koalas at the Billabong Zoo: Koala & Wildlife Park. This breeding center for the famous Australian marsupial gives you the opportunity to get close with the koalas and other species. After holding one of the docile creatures, have your picture taken with a dingo and cradle a penguin. The park is also home to two rare snow leopards, a 4.6 m (15 ft.) crocodile, and a handful of reptiles and spider monkeys. Keepers give presentations on each species according to a daily schedule. Buy a cup of feed at the entrance to attract the park's free-ranging kangaroos and wallabies.
