    We absolutely loved the alpacas. And the wallabys. And the vastness of the wildlife park. We were lucky with the weather. It stopped raining just as we got there. The owners had their own vegetable fa...  more »

  • Did not expect much from the look outside but inside, there are 40 acres of land to explore. You get to interact and hand feed some of the animals, much better experience than going to zoos. Not many animals but enough to keep you busy for few hours. Friendly people running the place. Enjoyed our visit very much. My photos did not do justice to this place because I've taken lots of video shots instead. Too bad can't post here
  • This is a must visit! The sanctuary is wonderful. We didn't know anything about this place, we just drove past and decided to pop in. We didn't know what to expect but it was surprisingly pleasant. The staff were friendly and welcoming (and their dog). It is plainly evident that they care deeply about the animals kept at the park and it's family owned and run. The views across the fields are beautiful and you're given the opportunity to get up close with the (very friendly) animals and feed some of them.
  • Is very small family ran park. But staff where awesome and enclosures where lovely. Was quite a bit of maintenace going on the day we visited which is great to see that the owners care about the park
  • I love it....not as much animals​ as a zoo or other wildlife Park but I love the set up. Would have stay there for a while if I have the mean.
  • Great way to see some of the animals. I don't go to zoos and this didn't feel like one. Just a few of the kangaroos are in the feeding area. Most of the animals have acres of fenced areas where they roam freely. It's worth paying to meet the dingos. Whatever you do please be respectful of these beings. If you come expecting thousands of animals in small enclosures or exploitative shows like Seaworld you'll be quite disappointed. If you want an intimate way to meet some of these animals it's wonderful for that. For us it was the highlight of our Great Ocean Road trip. Also nice to support a small family business where they're trying to dispel myths about dingos which result in them being killed.
