  • Crocodiles, Ducks, Wallabies, Cassowaries and more!! What a great day relaxing with the animals. Its a small park but its right in our backyard and you don't have to fight the crowds. We ended up buying a yearly pass we loved it so much. The bird show is cool.
  • A great day out for the family. Informative and interesting presentations by the park Rangers. A great opportunity to get close to our Australian native wildlife at a reasonable price. Either bring a picnic lunch (shelters and tables on site) or dine at the on site cafĂ©. There wasn't much food left at the cafe when we went to eat at 1:30/2pm however.
  • Lovely park, good family outing for young children. Great way to see some of Queensland's native animals, in a beautiful setting. Friendly staff and volunteers.
  • A beautiful assortment of Australian wildlife, from wallabies to hopping mice, and cassowaries to crocodiles. This is a fabulous place to walk, marvel and learn and finish the day with a snack at the cafe. It is a bit small and there are no kangaroos, just so you know.
  • Friendly and helpful staff doing great work for Australian wildlife.
