The staff were all so lovely, the premises were very clean and the animals were obviously happy and well cared for. I will definatly be visiting again on my next trip to aussy.

I visited the park this morning and loved every second. The park was nice and quiet, even from the car park you can see the roos! I emailed the park yesterday to try to arrange a 'speed date' with Tonka the wombat. Tassin and Amy...More

We were visiting Sydney and wanted the chance to pet Koalas and Kangaroo. We rented a car and drove the hour to Calga. It is very inexpensive to be able to roam around with free Kangaroos. We made it to all the education stops on...More

This was a great experience. To stay in the Australian Bush for a night with the park accessible to you and your group was exciting and insightful. Many of the animals are nocturnal so you get a better chance of seeing them “come to life”...More

We have lots of overseas visitors and they want to see Australian animals up close. If you have a car, I would recommend this place above Taronga because you really get to see the animals up close and it's a lot less busy. It's set...More

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.

Went with family and grandkids to this site on Tuesday and it was amazing - so many Australian wildlife animals to see and touch - kangaroos and wallabies just walking around and friendly. Kids could feed rabbits, guinea pigs, alpaca's, goats, ducks and geese. Can...More

Hi there; the rangers are extremely knowledgable and you'll surely get a lot out of a private tour with your two hour window. The park is small and you'll easily be able to walk about with comfort. The Koalas are very... More

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
