We were a bit skeptical when we first arrived as the building where they sold tickets, had a cafe and a souvenir shop looked pretty non-descript. And even the first few enclosures with lace monitor lizards, koalas, wallabies, etc were quite 'normal'. But walk past all that and to the large fields and 'swampland' and you'll be surrounded by all... More

In all the times I have been to the Island over 50 years, this is the first time I have been. Boy have I been missing something. Don't go if you are not prepared to get dirty. It is as fauna parks should be. A bit rough and ready. Plenty of wild life to see and have contact with. The... More

The park bit old but good place for children to be able to feed the kangaroos, wombats and emus and those birds roaming free on the park. The park had got lots of kangaroos, wallabies and some birds roaming freely where we can feed them with the pallets which given to us with the entrance fees. Not very pleasant on... More

This is absolutely the best experience in my entire time in Australia. The closeness you get from the animals, amazing, the animals are generally friendly but please don't do anything stupid to upset them. I must say one of the coolest things to do. And the staff are so helpful, the gift shop is really good actually all the typical... More

This is a gem that not many people know about. The close encounters of the wildlife is a must for children and overseas visitors. You receive a generous bag of feed with your admission ticket and the wallabies are very gentle and tame. The viewing platform for the koalas is excellent, easy to walk around the reserve. A very large... More

Wonderful place to see Koalas close up. The pathways are beautiful with vegetation. The walk is easy and level even ground to walk even with a disability. Center gives an excellent history of the koalas.

It was exactly what we were looking for: friendly environment with good access to the animals. They give you a small bag with food in order to feed the kangaroos which are very sweet and friendly. Good value. I totally recommend this place when visiting Phillip Island.
