One of the best things about Australia is the cutest critters on earth. Since the evolution of species, and Australia's unique island separation, the rise of marsupial mammals has given us incredible animals. This is the best place to see, interact and pet them. Unlike...More

This was by far one of my favorite stops on Phillip Island. From the road this place looked a little iffy, but once inside you can see that the animals are well cared for & the place is well maintained. We were able to get...More

As other reviewers have mentioned, some of the exhibits are in a less than ideal condition. But the ability to interact with the kangaroos, wallabies, Emus is great. We were on a guided tour that stopped at the Wildlife Park. Our guide was very familiar...More

Lots of animals in some cases overcrowded conditions. Wetland area was dark green and stagnant and lots of dead trees. No catering facilities. Seemed like the family run business was really struggling to do the right thing by the animals.

It was a bit disappointing, as the park was very run down and sad-looking. It was only $19 entry for adults, so not too much of a loss. It would be great for young children, as there is kangaroo feeding and lots of different animals...More

I personally found the place barren and depressing. Needs a huge overhaul to be an acceptable place to visit. Would not return or recommend.

Loved this place! Different from other places we have visited where animals are kept in enclosures and not much opportunity for interaction. Different story here! It was lovely feeding the roos and experiencing the cheeky Emu's. Spent about 2 hours here and we really enjoyed...More

Let’s start with the negative (only one so it’s gonna be quick ). There’s too many bugs, like way too many, it made it so difficult to spend time in some parts of the park. On the positive.... honestly this place was magical ! Absolutely...More

All animal enclosures look a bit rusty. I know this place since 1994 and this didn't change much. BUT the owners care for this place with their heart and you really can have a close encounter with a lot of typical animals, even the big...More

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
