I took my parents who were visiting the UK for a visit so that they could feed the wallabies and kangaroos. As previous reviews I’d read had stated the buildings are a bit run down and I thought some of the aviaries seemed way too...More

This was our fourth visit to this wildlife park and the first time the wombats were out of their burrows....what a treat. It was good to see the park has had some attention over this past year in regard to the enclosures and the general...More

We were one of the first people to arrive and I highly recommend you do this as the animals clearly are hungry at the start and they all came running towards us. After we finished touring the park there was no where near as many...More

Had a great day with 6 of us in total including 2 kids. The park is a lot bigger than it looks like from the road. Really enjoyed feeding the wallabies and kangaroos and getting up close and personal with them as they were so...More

Located in the central area of the island. Free ample parking. Reasonable admission fee applied. Pack of animal feeding food is provided. Most animals are free and can be fed. A wonderful place to spend few hours. Kids are enjoying. Kangaroos and wallabies are friendly....More

Its a shame that this place is still trading. Its poorly maintained and no way a natural experience. This is not how wild animals should be treated. The owners should close it down.

Do not be put off by the slightly ramshackle appearance of this park. The experience of feeding Kangaroos and Emus and experiencing many other interesting Australian species close up greatly outweigh any aesthetic issues! Entry charges are reasonable and include a bag of feed. Tremendous...More

I wasn't sure what to expect here. I was pleasantly surprised and the kids really enjoyed it. Couldn't believe how close to the kangaroos we could get. Highly recommend!

I am sorry I do not think so, you could ask the owners but it is unlikely. Hope you one and enjoy your stay. There is also the Koala Park it had more Koalas and excellent viewing. I don't think they allow people to hold... More
