We recently visited the Phillip Island Wildlife Park off a friends recommendation, and I'm so happy we did! We had a fantastic time, with so many different Australian animals to see, you are spoilt for choice. The park is great for kids, as you have plenty of opportunities to not only see these animals up close, but also feed a... More

Our grandson, and Nan and Pa, love this place. Hand feed wallabies, pademelons, etc. as they roam free. And heaps more to see including eagles, lizards, snakes, flying foxes. All native. BYO picnic is the way to go, inside eating area, no cafe though, just cold drinks, ice creams, lollies and the best priced souvenirs I have seen. We go... More

Great hands on experience feeding kangaroos and emus in large open areas. Little ones loved it. Lots of animals in caged areas too, personal preference if you like this. Decent walk out the back where there was heaps more room for the wildlife to roam. Pretty pricey

It cost $15 extra on top of entry fee, but I got to stand next to a Koala. You could do everything except hold one, which apparently is illegal in Victoria. I have some great photos, They are amazing little creatures and I really enjoyed the experience. You can buy a small bag of feed for $2 and are able... More

The park is kinda small but you are able the see most of Australian animals there. Do go beyond the open range area which you can really appreciate the true natural habitat of the wild kangaroos. There were many there. Watch out your food in your hand, they will grab it from you, even the kangaroos will fight among each... More

This place is a must if you are traveling to Phillip Island. Whilst most people visit the island for the obvious penguins.... The wildlife park is a great piece of Australian wildlife! The wildlife park has been a regular place of visit every time we visit the island. We have taken our interstate and overseas guests there and they have... More

It was a boiling hot day, but we enjoyed ourselves. Quite right, on reading some of the comments by other travellers, the zoo was a bit run down, but the animals seemed happy enough. Well those that were awake. The Kangaroos and the Wallaby's certainly were. You are encouraged to feed them and you are given a bag of food... More

Pretty run down and some of the enclosures for the animals were too small, especially one lizard who was longer than the tank he was living in. Wallabies looked happy but the birds and tazmanian devils I felt sorry for.
