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

You won’t want to waste your money to visit this place. You can complete it in less than 30 Min. Not so much animals to see. And don’t wear your nice shoes, it will be very muddy and dirty.
