  • Fantastic place for a family walk with wildlife so easy to see. Friendly and helpful staff at the information centre. We also went back around dusk to see loads of kangaroos and emus walking around the information centre. Highly recommend.
  • Emu's wandering around all over the place. Koalas in the trees of this unique wildlife reserve. The drive in would be a big enough adventure for most. Great visitors centre with helpful staff. Real adventures to be had here.
  • Great drive and walk. We spotted a copperhead snake resting on a branch near the entrance of boardwalk. A koala, a few Emu and several species of birds along the 1 hour walk. When we are leaving we are excited to found 2 Wallabies.
  • This reserve was an awesome place to stop after driving the great ocean road! It sits in a massive caldera on a inactive volcano. We ate a snack, bought some souvenirs and used the public restrooms. We spent about an hour here, you should make more time for it, at least several hours!
  • It was wonderful time spent in the park. Very clean and a lot of cute cute koalas. Thanks!
