Overview

If you love animals but you don't like to see them in zoos, this working wildlife sanctuary is a wonderful place to visit. Only an hour north of Sydney city, you can meet kangaroos, emus and wallabies living free in 80 acres of Australian bush. Natural camps house koalas, wombats, Tasmanian devils, dingoes, flying foxes, echidnas, pythons, cockatoos and all their feathered, furry, scaly and spiky friends. Follow the walking tracks to visit ancient Aboriginal sites. Open every day from 9am to 5pm, or book an overnight ranger-led Wild Night Out. Fun and safe for children and adults alike. This is not an intense commercial experience with concrete paths and play areas. This is the real Australian bush.

What a perfect day at the park. I like this much better than Taronga, was able to be up close with koala's, snakes, kangaroos, etc. I would certainly recommend this to anyone that loves the zoo.

We had a fantastic time. We went on Good Friday and had a close-up encounter with most animals in the park. Staff are welcoming and really devoted to the animals. Price is fair and the animals are well looked after.

Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park is not on a public transport route and therefore the closest station is at Gosford, either train or bus. A taxi fare from Gosford is approximately $45 one way, so is pretty expensive. We... More
