Alot of people say this place is run down and needs some TLC. Yes, they are correct but it doesn't take away how great the workers work and how the animals are treated. There is so much food for the animals and when you have...More

Fabulous park..... don't drive by because of 1st impressions..... looks drab from the outside but it's amazing inside. You could quite easily spend 4 or 5 hours here just gently strolling around. Lots of animals to see including Tasmanian devils, Wombats, Quolls, Koalas, Dingos and...More

Absolutely fantastic attraction. The animals free in their own habitat. It is the most wonderful experience not only to walk amongst them but to feed them from the palm of your hand any time you want. Healesville Sanctuary has nothing on this park. This is...More

Great variety of Australian animals who are all well cared for. You are given a small bag of pellets to feed certain animals, which is a lovely experience. Emus had young while we were there, so be a bit cautious of their over exuberance. Cute...More

First - this is a free roaming wild life park so if you have small children or are afraid of animals then maybe this is not for you. I was with my husband and loved feeding the kangaroos and wallaby's. One kangaroo had a baby...More

Standing alone in an area surrounded by dead trees with a large group of kangaroos eyeing the feed on my hand was an experience I would not like to repeat again. =D But feeding the emus was a much more scary experience on my part...More

We visited here as part of our 'Posh Penguin' tour so our entry fee had already been paid. We were given some food bags to feed the hungry animals, and off we went. Great fun if you have not been around australian wildlife before.

This place is so great! The animals seem genuinely happy and relaxed which makes for feeding them so awesome. It gives you a fun day out with a good long walk and heaps to learn about Aussie animals along the way. I can only imagine...More
