  • Easy day with the under 10's. Talks were informative, don't have to line up. Great to get up and personal with the animals. Plenty of shade and cost effective. 
  • The platypus and bilby were definitely the highlights. The crocodile is huge. Small and quaint. No crowds. Only thing I wish was different is the show times. There's no way you could see all of the sh...  more »

  • An amazing Wildlife Park with cool and knowledgeable staff. All the animals are happy and well taken care of. Highly recommended.
  • Bit small but good fun for a family outing. Staff are very friendly and the shows are great and educational. Being a bit smaller, it was more intimate and the kids get a bit closer to the animals. Thanks to the staff for a nice day out and a great experience!!!
  • Great value for a family, take a packed lunch (or buy at the cafe) and mosey around the park. Not a huge park, (you can get around all enclosures inside an hour if you only spend a few minutes at each one) but the shows are great and the staff are very friendly and knowledgable. All the animals look great, and are well catered for, if I was a native, I'd want to live there!
  • Loved this wildlife park. Great spot for photography. The park is well presented and maintained. Staff were friendly and helpful. Canteen food was good & a good price. Thank you for making my day a good one. The board walk was a pleasant walk down to Palm beach.
  • David Fleay conservationist from the 1950s who wanted to protect this part of Tallebudgera. Awesome story and place.
